TI  - Lead concentration in the bladder tissue and blood of patients with bladder

AB  - OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between lead and bladder cancer.
      MATERIAL AND METHODS: The levels of lead concentration in blood and bladder
      cancer tissue from a sample set of 36 bladder cancer patients were measured and
      then compared with those of a normal group. The levels of lead obtained in the
      bladder cancer tissue were evaluated depending on the stage of the tumour. The
      level of lead concentration in each tissue sample was determined by atomic
      absorption spectrometry. RESULTS: The lead concentration reached statistically
      higher values in both the bladder cancer tissue and the blood of patients with
      this carcinoma compared with those of the control group. No relationship between 
      lead concentration levels in the bladder cancer tissue and blood of patients with
      this neoplasm on stage of tumour was demonstrated. CONCLUSION: The results
      suggest that there is a relationship between exposure to lead and the
      initialization and development of bladder cancer.
