Título Exposure to cadmium and its effect on kidney function
Título original Kadmium expozíció, hatása a veseműködésre [en húngaro]
Información bibliográfica 1983, Vol.29, No.7-9, p.147-151. 22 ref.
Resumen Cadmium concentration in blood (CdB) and urine (CdU), and total protein and β2-microglobulin in urine were determined in 3 groups of workers (100 agricultural workers not exposed to cadmium, 204 industrial workers not exposed to cadmium, 39 exposed industrial workers). CdB in unexposed industrial workers was 3-4 times higher than in agricultural workers, but still below the WHO-recommended TLV of 1µg/100ml. In the exposed group, all 4 measurements yielded significantly higher results than in the unexposed industrial group; this means that renal dysfunction occurred, though no other clinical symptoms of cadmium poisoning were observed.
