||The toxicity of a lead-cadmium solder (LCS, a eutectic alloy consisting of the 3 crystal lattices of lead, cadmium and tin) was determined in acute, subacute and chronic experiments with rats. LCS specifically affected the haematopoietic system, the liver and the kidney. Pituitary-gonadal effects of the solder were due both to specific effects of lead and cadmium and to the general toxicity of the metals. An LCS concentration of 0.01mg/m3 is close to the threshold of action. A TLV of 0.001mg/m3 as lead is recommended.
