Cadmium (Cd), N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase (NAG) activity, beta 2-microglobulin (BMG), and creatinine (cr) in urine were measured during April and September 1986 in workers exposed to cadmium pigment dust (maximum exposure 3.0 micrograms/m3/8 h for respirable dust). In April and September urinary Cd ranged from 0.2 to 9.5 and from 0.5 to 7.0 micrograms/g cr with a geometric mean of 0.7 and 1.2 micrograms/g cr, respectively. The correlation coefficient between Cd and NAG was 0.261 (n = 61) in… CONTINUE READING
