We examined the association of maternal prenatal [range of median blood lead level 7.5-9.0 microg/dl (0.36-0.43 micromol/l) during pregnancy] and child postnatal blood lead level [range of median blood lead level from birth to 48 months 7.0-10.0 microg/dl (0.34-0.48 micromol/l)] with head circumference in from 119 to 199 children from the Mexico City… (More)

To determine the temporal pattern of the effect of postnatal blood lead level on the General Cognitive Index (GCI) of the McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities, we used data from 112 children of the Mexico City Prospective Lead Study with complete evaluations from 36 to 60 months of age at 6-month intervals. We measured blood lead level every 6 months… (More)
