||Studies on the exposure and occurrence of proteinuria among employees of the pigment industry with long-term exposure to cadmium
||Untersuchungen zur Belastung und zur Proteinurie bei langjähriger Cadmiumexposition in der Pigmentindustrie [in German]|

||Cadmium levels in blood and urine samples of 152 workers with long-term exposure to cadmium in 2 plants producing cadmium pigment and cadmium glaze frits were not significantly different from those in 214 members of the control group. Neither were the early indicators of proteinuria such as total protein, albumin, beta-2-micro-globulin, transferrin and alpha-1-microglobulin in urine significantly different from the control group. Increased levels occurred only among employees whose exposure dated back to the 1970s. With today's exposure levels of 5µg cadmium/m3 no elevated internal cadmium levels are found.
