  1. Screening of lead exposure among workers in Selangor and federal territory in Malaysia.

    Article - En anglais

    The study of lead exposure among workers in Selangor and the Federal Territory was carried out based on the delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) level in urine.

    Occupations which are expected to have higher lead exposure were chosen in this research.

    The ALA level in the workers'urine was linked to a few variables which may contribute to the lead level in the body.

    The result of this study showed that the ALA level of the urine of university students (0352 ± 0-038 mg/100 ml)

    The ALA levels in the urine of the exposed workers were significantly different from the control group (university students).

    However, results obtained from clerical staff revealed that they were also in the exposed group category.

    Analysis of variance showed that the exposed groups are in a population which is different from the control population.

    Correlation tests suggest that there is no significant connection between the ALA level in the urine and the variables tested.

    Furthermore, Duncan's Multiple Range Test showed no significant differences between the smoking/non smoking group, alcoholic/non-alcoholic group, race and sex (p>0.05).
