||Associations of tibia lead, DMSA-chelatable lead, and blood lead with measures of peripheral nervous system function in former organolead manufacturing workers

||This study of former organolead manufacturing workers (with an average of 16 years since their last occupational lead exposure) found no strong association between biomarkers (blood lead, DMSA-chelatable lead, current tibia lead and back-extrapolated "peak" tibia lead) and peripheral nervous system (PNS) sensory or motor function indicators. PNS may be less affected than some other body systems by the chronic toxic effects of lead in adults, possibly because it has a greater capacity for repair than does the central nervous system (CNS).
