  1. Changes in natural killer cell subpopulations in lead workers.

    Article - En anglais

    To investigate the effects of lead on human immune system, we analyzed T cell subpopulations (CD4+CD8+and CD3+cells), natural killer (NK) cell subpopulations (CD16+and CD57+cells) and B (CDl9+) cells in peripheral blood in 29 male lead workers.

    All were engaged in manufacturing lead stearate in a chemical factory.

    They were aged 23-74 (mean 49) years.

    Their blood lead concentrations (PbB) were between 7 and 35 (mean 18) mug/dl.

    They were divided into two groups according to their PbB : a high-PbB group (= 20 mug/dl), and a low-PbB group (<20 mug/dl).

    The control group consisted of 19 « healthy » male workers without a history of occupational exposure to lead or to other hazardous substances, aged 48-67 (mean 58) years.

    The number and percentage of CD16+cells in the high-PbB group were significantly lower than those in the controls and in the low-PbB group.

    There was significant negative correlation between the number of CD16+cells and PbB in the lead workers.

    The percentage of CD8+cells in the high-PbB group was larger than that in the controls and in the low-PbB group.

    It is suggested that the CD16+NK cell should be a major site of the effects of lead on lymphocyte subpopulations.
