Association of Cumulative Lead Exposure with Parkinson’s Disease
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2010)
Background: Research using reconstructed exposure histories has suggested an association between heavy metal exposures, including lead, and Parkinson’s disease (PD), but the only study that used bone lead, a biomarker of ...
A delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD) polymorphism may modify the relationship of low-level lead exposure to uricemia and renal function: the normative aging study.
In this study we investigated whether a known delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD) exon 4 polymorphism has a modifying effect on the association of blood or bone lead level with uricemia and indices of renal function ...
Lead, Diabetes, Hypertension, and Renal Function: The Normative Aging Study
(National Institue of Environmental Health Sciences, 2004)
In this prospective study, we examined changes in renal function during 6 years of follow-up in relation to baseline lead levels, diabetes, and hypertension among 448 middle-age and elderly men, a subsample of the Normative ...
Stress as a Potential Modifier of the Impact of Lead Levels on Blood Pressure: The Normative Aging Study
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2007)
Background: Lead exposure and psychological stress have been independently associated with hypertension in various populations, and animal studies suggest that when they co-occur, their effects may be exacerbated. Objectives: ...
