Abstract
Studies on the reproductive effects of lead (7439921) are reviewed. Animal and human studies are listed together with major findings. Studies on occupationally exposed populations and on children of parents exposed to lead are described together with studies on the effect of lead on pregnancy outcome, fetal malformations, neonatal development, menstrual cycle and neurophysiological behavior. Information on lead induced chromosome damage also is presented. The author concludes that the fetus is highly sensitive to the toxic effects of lead. Children exposed in utero to lead may develop subsequent behavioral deficits. Lead exposure can cause adverse reproductive effects in male and female workers.
