    Article - En anglais

    A study was conducted into the exposure to atmospheric pollution caused by car traffic by measuring blood lead (PbB) levels in a sample of 657 adult individuals (shopkeepers) all living in Liguria.

    The mean level of blood lead in all examined individuals was 9.39 mug dl-1 (0.45 mumol per liter ; C.I. 95% : 9.06-9.75 mug dl-1 ; 0.44-0.47 mumol per liter) with a range between 2.0 and 46.03 mug dl-1 (0.10-2.22 mumol per liter).

    The average Pb values in individuals working in streets with high and very high traffic was 8.30 mug dl-1 (0.40 mumol per liter, C.I. 95% : 7.41-9.31 mug dl-1 ; 0.36-0.45 mumol per liter) and 9.98 mug dl-1 (0.48 mumol per liter, C.I. 95% : 9.62-10.37 mug dl-1 ; 0.46-0.50 mumol per liter), respectively.
