We have measured serum aluminium and urinary aluminium/creatinine ratios in 235 aluminium workers and 44 controls to examine the association between occupational exposure to airborne aluminium and aluminium absorption. Serum and urine samples were taken before and after a 3- to 5-day work shift. Occupational exposure was estimated from aluminium measurements of respirable and total particulates in air. Median exposure values were 25 and 100 micrograms m-3, respectively. Serum aluminium and… CONTINUE READING
