Title Evolution of cadmium-induced renal dysfunction in workers removed from exposure
Bibliographic information Sep. 1982, Vol.8, No.3, p.191-200. Illus. 39 ref.
Abstract 19 workers who had been examined before and after removal from Cd exposure of more than 15 years duration were studied. 0.3-7.9 years after removal from exposure, all exhibited signs of cadmium-induced renal dysfunction. Cadmium-induced renal lesions are not reversible when exposure ceases.
