This work was designed to analyze the possible dose dependent effects of cadmium on the distribution of lymphocyte subsets within the thymus and spleen. Cadmium accumulation was also evaluated in these tissues. For this 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. In both spleen and thymus, the B lymphocytes increased with the doses of 5 and 10 ppm of CdCl2, and decreased with the doses of 25–100 ppm. In… CONTINUE READING
