1,2-Dibromo-3-chloropropane (DBCP), a soil fumigant against nematodes, has been extensively studied for genotoxicity, carcinogenicity and damage to male reproduction-related organs, as a possible endocrine disruptor. However, the precise mechanisms involved in DBCP-induced mutagenesis and carcinogenesis are as yet unknown. Thus...

Dibromochloropropane (1,2-dibromo-3-chloropropane, DBCP), a pesticide used widely for over 20 years to control nematodes on crops, turf and in nurseries, was banned by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) in 1977 because of evidence of infertility in men...

The exposure of men to the nematocide dibromochloropropane (DBCP) has caused prolonged oligo- and azoospermia, which occasionally reverses spontaneously. We recently demonstrated that in testes of rats treated with a dose of DBCP sufficient to reduce the percentage of tubules...

Zinc and lead concentrations were measured in seminal plasma from fertile donors, infertile men with varicocoele and men undergoing work-ups for in vitro fertilization. Ejaculated spermatozoa from these subjects were incubated in vitro with various metal ions and/or dibromoethane and...
