5 Abstract: Effect of long-term exposure to low or moderate lead acetate (PbAc) on growth, serum lipid profile and some biochemical parameters was investigated. Male albino rats were divided into five groups and given 0, 0.025, 0.05, 0.1 and 0.3% PbAc in drinking water for 11 months. There was a significant decrease in body weight in rats given 0.1 % PbAc at the third month of lead treatment (p<0.01) compared to the control group, while the body weight gain was significantly increased at the…

ALTERATION IN CARBOHYDRATE METABOLISM BY SUB-ACUTE LEAD EXPOSURE: A DOSE-DEPENDENT STUDY

TLDR
It is suggested that an adaptive mechanism is initiated by stimulating and retarding glycogenolytic and glycolytic activity and also by rising in the content of free amino acid nitrogen to recover from the lead stressed toxic manifestation.

Protective Effects of Vitamin C on Hematological and Biochemical Parameters of Intoxicated Male Albino Rats with Lead and Cadmium

TLDR
Pre-administration with vitamin C concurrently with lead and cadmium metals prevented adverse effect of tested heavy metals on hematological and biochemical parameters compared to vitamin C treated rats group and control untreated rats group.

Lead acetate toxicity on glucose level and liver enzymes ameliorated by camel’s milk in Wistar albino rat

TLDR
The ability of camel milk to reduce lead toxicity may relate to its antioxidant actions or enhancing, the metal chelating action.

aily intake of lead in Wistar rats at different ages : Biochemical , enotoxic and physiological effects ássia

TLDR
The effects of the daily intake of feed containing lead were evaluated in 45 and 90-day-old Wistar female rats, and Hematological alterations were observed only in Pb90 rats, which showed lower hemoglobin levels.

Effect of lead acetate alone and in combination with whole milk (Star ship®) on body growth and liver functions in an experimentally induced lead toxicity in rat

The Effect of lead acetate alone and in combination with whole milk on body weight gain and some biochemical parameters were carried out on a total of 15 (15 days old) male weaning Long- Evans strain

SYNERGISTIC EFFECTS OF LEAD-ACETATE AND ALLOXAN ON BODY WEIGHT GAIN AND ORGANOSOMATIC LIVER INDEX OF WISTAR RAT INFECTED WITH ESCHERICHIA

TLDR
Values of organosomatic liver indexes showed a significant increase in diabetic rats exposed to infection in relation to the control group and rats treated with only one agens, so it is necessary to avoid any contact with this toxicant.

Lead induced dyslipidemia: The comparative effects of ascorbate and chelation therapy

TLDR
The study indicates that administration of the antioxidant, Asc may not be more efficacious than the chelating agents but could be a cheaper and more convenient therapy for lead toxicity.

Effect of Lead Toxicity on Cytogenisity, Biochemical Constituents and Tissue Residue with Protective Role of Activated Charcoal and Casein in Male Rats

TLDR
Investigation of the most toxic effects of lead with trial to diminish this toxicity by supplementation of casein or activated charcoal found casein showed higher efficacy in the protection of lead- induced toxicity than charcoal.

THE COMPARATIVE ROLE OF ASCORBATE AND CHELATORS IN REVERSING OXIDATIVE STRESS, HEPATIC AND RENAL DYSFUNCTION IN SUB-ACUTE LEAD POISONING

TLDR
Findings indicate that ascorbate is more effective in ameliorative roles in acute lead poisoning than D-penicillamine or succimer in groups 3-5 after therapeutic interventions.

Effects of subacute low level lead exposure on glucose homeostasis.

TLDR
Data are presented which suggest that six week old animals are more influenced by subacute lead exposure than are the eight weeks old animals, as reflected in some alteration of gluconeogenic enzyme activity in younger rats.

Lipid abnormalities in rats given small doses of lead

TLDR
In rats poisoned with small doses of lead, decreases in the plasma cholesterol level and the HDL-cholesterol fraction were observed, and in parallel with the decrease in the cholesterol concentration, lead increases the serum triglyceride level, this increase being dependent upon lead levels in blood.

Pathogenesis of fatty liver in rats fed a high protein diet without pyridoxine.

TLDR
It is suggested that development of fatty liver results from impaired lysosomal degradation of lipid, which isomersally characterized by accumulation of fat in hepatocytes of the centrolobular and midzonal areas.

Lead Toxicity in a Family as a Result of Occupational Exposure

TLDR
A follow up three months later showed a slight decrease in blood lead levels and a significant increase in haemoglobin, which can be attributed to behavioural changes adopted by the family, even though they continued producing lead batteries.

Liver and kidney function tests amongst paint factory workers in Nkpor, Nigeria

TLDR
The results showed that occupational exposure of humans to paints increased the blood lead, serum cadmium and nickel, when compared with non-paint factory workers (PFW), which indicates that heavy metals in paints may have long term deleterious effects on liver and renal functions.
