||A study carried out on 59 workers exposed to cadmium, of whom 43 were employed in the production of alkaline batteries, 10 in CdO production and 10 were retired, revealed a significant elimination of low-molecular-weight proteins. This tubular proteinuria was not related with any functional signs of cadmium poisoning. The technique used (polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis using sodium dodecyl sulfate) proved effective in the determination of the spectrum of low-molecular-weight proteins in the urine of exposed workers.
