The cross-sectional relation between levels of urinary biogenic amines (dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and serotonin) and levels of blood lead was examined in a study of 645 male participants from a longitudinal study of aging.
This stable population of men had initially been recruited from communities in and around Boston, Massachusetts, and had not been selected with regard to lead exposure.
Blood lead samples and 24-hour and 2-hour urine specimens were collected during regularly scheduled clinic visits.
In multivariate linear regression step-forward models, 24-hour epinephrine excretion was significantly and positively associated with blood lead (bêta=0.101 mug(mug/dl)-1 blood lead, SE (standard error) (bêta)=0.045, p=0.026).
