This work was designed to analyze the possible dose dependent effects of cadmium on the blood lymphocyte subset distribution and if these effects are related to circulating cadmium concentration. For that purpose, adult male rats were exposed for one month to 0, 5, 10, 25, 50 or 100 ppm of cadmium chloride (CdCl2) in the drinking water. B lymphocytes decreased in peripheral blood with the doses of 5 and 10 ppm of CdCl2. From the dose of 25 ppm on, B cells increased. T lymphocytes were increased… CONTINUE READING
