Association of expired nitric oxide with urinary metal concentrations in boilermakers exposed to residual oil fly ash.


BACKGROUND Exposure to metal-containing particulate matter has been associated with adverse pulmonary responses. Metals in particulate matter are soluble, hence are readily recovered in urine of exposed individuals. This study investigated the association between urinary metal concentrations and the fractional concentration of expired nitric oxide (F(E)NO… (More)
