Urinary proteins and enzymes as early indicators of renal dysfunction in chronic exposure to cadmium.

Abstract

We tested the diagnostic sensitivity of various urinary analytes for detecting cadmium-induced nephropathy at an early stage. We investigated 73 healthy persons (control group 1) and individuals exposed to cadmium, either environmentally (n = 36, risk group 2) or occupationally (n = 62, exposed group 3). All data were related to limits of the central 95… (More)
