In this introduction to a panel discussion on the problems of application and future research needs to the health effects of occupational lead (7439921) exposure, six areas are briefly identified. They are: screening methods for increased lead absorption, earliest signs of tissue damage and behavioral impairment from lead absorption, blood lead distribution with emphasis on plasma red blood cell ratio and correlation of shifts in red blood cells or protein binding of lead with symptoms and signs, safety of calcium-EDTA (64039) (12002061) therapy and significance of concomitant increased absorption of other heavy metals, especially cadmium (7440439).
