Title Protein excretion patterns in cadmium-exposed individuals: High resolution electrophoresis
Bibliographic information Mar.-Apr. 1984, Vol.39, No.2, p.69-73. Illus. 11 ref.
Abstract High-resolution electrophoresis was used to evaluate protein excretion patterns in 6 cadmium-exposed individuals with proteinuria, 7 subjects with non-specific nephropathies and 4 normal unexposed subjects. The electrophoretic results were consistent with the quantitative results for the cadmium-exposed workers. The excretion pattern associated with Cd exposure could be glomerular or mixed glomerular-tubular, and it is different from non-specific nephropathies in that no gamma band exists.
