In this pilot study, we prospectively evaluated experimental practices for abating lead-based paint in six dwellings.
These experimental abatements were based upon a newapproach to abatement which reflects current understanding of low-level lead toxicity in children and the role of lead-contaminated dust as an important contributor to children's total body burden.
Our previous study of traditional abatement practices in Baltimore showed them to be inadequate for reducing lead in both house dust and children's blood.
