Título Significance of low molecular proteinuria in cadmium poisoning
Información bibliográfica Sep. 1982, Vol.7, No.3, p.142-151. Illus. 15 ref.
Resumen The most useful parameters for detecting the effects of cadmium (Cd) exposure were studied by examining the urinary concentrations of Cd, protein, glucose, amino acids, proline and low-molecular-weight proteins such as β2-microglobulin (β2-MG) and retinol-binding protein (RBP) in 534 inhabitants of a Cd-polluted area. The most useful tests were those for the detection of the low-molecular-weight proteins β2-MG and RBP in urine. Low-molecular-weight proteins appear in the urine of Cd-exposed subjects as a result of renal tubular damage. Summary in English.
