Renal function has been examined in a group of 77 subjects occupationally exposed to cadmium fume and dust, together with a referent group of 103 age- and socioeconomically matched subjects.
Fourteen biochemical parameters were measured on each subject.
Three different ways of combining the information from all 14 tests were used to identify those subjects with renal dysfunction.
These were first to count the number of parameters in which a subject recorded an abnormal test result.
Second, the z value was computed for each parameter for each person by comparison with the mean and standard deviation of a derived normal population; these z scores were then summed.
