||Predictors of blood lead levels in organolead manufacturing workers
||Oct. 1995, Vol.37, No.10, p.1224-1229. Illus. 22 ref.
||Estimates of recent and cumulative exposure to lead and blood lead levels were examined for 222 workers in an organolead manufacturing plant. Recent exposure to organic lead and recent and combined exposure to organic and inorganic lead were associated with increased blood lead levels. Alcohol use was associated with lower blood lead levels. The data suggest that organic lead exposure affects blood lead levels, probably after dealkylation to inorganic lead; the association with alcohol consumption may be evidence of differences in enzyme-mediated metabolism of organolead compounds. Recent lead exposure and internal lead stores both influenced blood lead levels in these workers.
