||Use of polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis for the detection of proteinuria in workers exposed to cadmium

||59 active or retired workers from alkaline-battery or cadmium-oxide plants were examined for proteinuria by electrophoresis of urine samples in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate. All cadmium-exposed subjects showed higher urinary levels of low-molecular-weight proteins than did non-exposed controls. This tubular proteinuria was detectable in the absence of subjective symptoms of cadmium poisoning, and in the absence of clinically detectable functional disturbances. Thus, electrophoresis is a sensitive method for the early detection of cadmium poisoning.
