||May-June 1983, Vol.74, No.3, p.182-190. 57 ref.
||A survey of the biological monitoring methods used to measure cadmium exposure in workers: measurement of cadmium levels in urine (CdU) and in blood (CdB); beta2-microglobulin concentration in urine; retinol-binding protein presence in urine; metallothionein presence in urine. Biological monitoring of workers exposed to cadmium is recommended to be annual if fewer than 5% of the subjects have CdU levels above 2.8µg/g creatinine, semi-annual if 5-20% of the subjects have such CdU levels and three times a year if over 20% have them.
