Title The value or urinary lead measurements in the periodic examination of battery workers
Bibliographic information 1995, Vol.1, No.1, p.27-32. 11 ref.
Abstract An attempt was made to determine whether urinary Pb measurements can help to identify battery workers who need more careful follow-up. The results, which were compared with data from blood Pb measurements, indicated that, although a correlation was found between blood and urinary Pb levels, urinary lead measurements should not be included in the periodic examination of workers exposed to lead.
