Associations of renal function with polymorphisms in the delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase, vitamin D receptor, and nitric oxide synthase genes in Korean lead workers.
We analyzed data from 798 lead workers to determine whether polymorphisms in the genes encoding delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD), endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), and the vitaminExpand

Associations of Uric Acid with Polymorphisms in the δ-Aminolevulinic Acid Dehydratase, Vitamin D Receptor, and Nitric Oxide Synthase Genes in Korean Lead Workers
Recent research suggests that uric acid may be nephrotoxic at lower levels than previously recognized and that it may be one mechanism for lead-related nephrotoxicity. Therefore, in understandingExpand

Associations among Lead Dose Biomarkers, Uric Acid, and Renal Function in Korean Lead Workers
Recent research suggests that both uric acid and lead may be nephrotoxic at lower levels than previously recognized. We analyzed data from 803 current and former lead workers to determine whetherExpand

Associations of low-level urine cadmium with kidney function in lead workers
Objectives Low-level cadmium exposure, resulting in, for example, urinary cadmium <2.0 μg/g creatinine, is widespread; recent data suggest nephrotoxicity even at these low levels. Few studies haveExpand
