Serum immunoglobulins and lymphocyte subset distributions in children and adults living in communities assessed for lead and cadmium exposure.

Abstract

This study assessed the impact of environmental cadmium and lead exposure on the immune system of more than 2000 children and adults. Serum immunoglobulins [immunoglobulins (Ig) A, G, and M] and peripheral blood lymphocyte phenotypes (T cells, B cells, NK cells, and CD4/CD8 subsets) were measured in a total of 2041 children and adults who lived either in… (More)
