Following in vitro exposure to environmentally relevant perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) concentrations (0–5 µg ml−1) in dolphin peripheral blood leukocytes (PBLs) and adult female B6C3F1 mouse splenocytes, lymphocyte proliferation and natural cell killer activity was measured. Risk assessment using a parallelogram approach indicated that dolphin PBLs exhibited similar results to correlative field studies; mice were generally more sensitive than dolphins; dolphins were more similar to humans than mice. The parallelogram approach was predictive two-thirds of the time for dolphin response.
