Abstract

Chemotaxis and nitroblue tetrazolium reduction were measured in peripheral blood neutrophils of workers occupationally exposed to lead. These two neutrophil functions were significantly reduced, as compared to controls, even in those workers with blood lead levels and urinary delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA-U) concentrations below the currently accepted… (More)
