Title Biological assessment of exposure in factories with second degree usage of cadmium compounds
Bibliographic information Feb. 1982, Vol.49, No.3-4, p.265-273. Illus. 12 ref.
Abstract Biological assessment of occupational exposure to cadmium (Cd pigments for glass bottle labelling, Cd stabilisers in plastics production, Cd electroplating of engine parts, Cd stabilisers and pigments in wall paper production, CdS in television tube production) in 124 exposed and control workers included: cadmium in blood (CdB) and urine (CdU), β-microglobulin, creatinine in urine, haemoglobin, and haematocrit. In these types of work the low external cadmium exposure does not result in different CdB levels, but only in different CdU levels, revealing an increased body burden due to long-term low-level occupational Cd exposure. In biological assessment of exposure to Cd, it is essential to take age and smoking habits fully into account.
