- To determine whether the concentration of lead in bone constitutes a biological marker that is more sensitive for chronic toxicity than blood lead levels.
- A construction trade union with members who engage in carpentry, demolition, and other construction activities.
- Members of the construction trade union.
We measured blood pressure, serum creatinine, hematocrit, and hemoglobin.
We measured blood lead by anodic stripping voltametry and used a cadmium 109 K x-ray fluorescence instrument to make in vivo measurements of lead in the tibia (a heavily cortical bone) and the patella (a heavily trabecular bone).
Information was also collected on medical history, smoking, and alcohol ingestion.
