  1. Dental lead levels in residents from industrial and suburban areas of Kuwait.

    Article - En anglais

    The present study describes lead concentrations in whole incisor teeth (non-carious) of 216 Kuwaiti resident's aged 3-74, collected from industrial and suburban areas of Kuwait.

    The mean concentration of lead in all age groups (3-74) showed a significant correlation between both the sexes.

    Statistical analysis showed a significant correlation between lead levels of males compared with industrial and suburban areas.

    A similar correlation was also noted in the case of females supporting that industrial residents were more exposed to lead levels than those in suburban areas.

    A further significant correlation was noted between males and females of industrial and suburban areas which showed that males accumulate more lead concentration than females.

    A significant correlation was not observed when each age group was compared with that of the respective sexes representing industrial and suburban areas.

    However, a significant correlation was noted when lead levels in each age group was compared with that of the other age groups except in age groups ranging 35-42.

    The mean lead levels of 216 teeth were in the range 2.21-2.50 mug/g which is less than the range indicated by other investigators in the recent past.
