Sažetak
A cross-sectional study was performed on 275 pupils from the third and fourth grade of three elementary schools (three urban areas with different traffic conditions) in Zagreb. Lead exposure was environmental, mostly through leaded gasoline. The difference in traffic density around the schools was consistent with biological indicators of lead absorption. The aim of the study was to clarify the relationship between characteristic biological indicators of lead absorption including indicators of hematological status with some psychological functions. Lead absorption in pupils was relatively low (mean blood lead: 70.8 ą 17.88 mg/L). Pupils' socio-economic status was evaluated by parents' education. The results obtained indicate that gender and school were associated with both biological and psychological variables. After adjusting for age, parental education, and gender, lead appears to have no association with cognitive or psycho-motor measures. The nonstandardized regression coefficients for blood lead - as a measure of the size of lead effect on VIQ, NIQ and IQ - were -0.016, -0.031, and -0.025, respectively, all nonsignifficant.
