Özet

Background To assess the immune competence of workers occupationally exposed to lead, several subsets of peripheral lymphocytes, i.e., T TCD4(+), TCD8(+), B, NK cells, serum immunoglobulin and complement protein concentrations, chemotaxis, and intracellular killing activity of neutrophils of 25 male storage battery workers have been analyzed and compared to 25 healthy males with no history of lead exposure.
