Experience with other halogenated hydrocarbons, animal experiments, and individual complaints indicated that polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) might have an effect on human spermatogenesis. Analysis of semen from 52 PBB-exposed men as compared with analysis of semen from a control group of 52 men not exposed to PBB revealed no differences in the distribution of sperm counts, motility, or morphology.
