Brain Lead Levels in Hemorrhagic Lead Encephalopathy


Lead (Pb) encephalopathy in the newborn rat is characterized by hemorrhage restricted to the cerebellum. This was produced by giving 7 day old rats 0.5ml 1% 210Pb-acetate by gastric tube daily x 7. This resulted on day 14 in significantly higher Pb levels in the cerebellum than cerebrum (10.1 ± 4.0 vs 5.0 ± 1.2μg Pb/gm)(M ± SD). Since red blood cells (RBC… (More)
