||Laboratory evaluation of combined exposure to lead, zinc and copper in secondary copper smelter workers
||1995. Vol.1, No.1, p.5-26. Illus. 46 ref.
||Compared with a control group of wood workers not exposed to metals, the exposed workers showed high mean blood Pb (29.8µg/100mL) and zinc protoporphyrin in blood (48.5µg/100mL), an increased Zn level in blood serum, and increased urine excretion of copper. The correlations in the study group were lead-dominated. There was a significant negative correlation between blood creatinine and the Pb blood level.
