  1. Mercury and proteins in cerebrospinal fluid in subjects exposed to mercury vapor.

    Article - En anglais

    Mercury (Hg) and protein levels in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and mercury in plasma (P), erythrocytes (Ery), and urine (U), were determined in 10 workers exposed to mercury vapor for 2-28 (median 13) years and in 16 occupationally unexposed referents.

    CSF-Hg was analyzed using radiochemical neutron activation analysis and P-Hg, Ery-Hg, and U-Hg were analyzed using cold-vapor atomic absorption spectrometry.

    P-Hg and U-Hg were significantly higher, but Ery-Hg was similar in the exposed workers (37 nmole/liter, 16 nmole/mmole creatinine, and 56 nmole/liter, respectively) compared with the referents (7.1 nmole/liter, 1.9 nmole/mmole creatinine, and 52 nmole/liter, respectively).
