Lead-contaminated soil abatement and urban children's blood lead levels.
Objective.-To test the hypothesis that a reduction of 1000 ppm or more of lead in soil accessible to children would result in a decrease of at least 0.14 mumol/L (3 mug/dL) in blood lead levels.
Setting.-Urban neighborhoods with a high incidence of childhood lead poisoning and high soil lead levels.
Design.-Randomized controlled trial of the effects of lead-contaminated soil abatement on blood lead levels of children followed up for approximately 1 year after the intervention.
Patients.-A total of 152 children less than 4 years of age with venous blood lead levels of 0.34 to 1.16 mumol/L (7 to 24 mug/dL).
