Lead (Pb) exposure from household dust is a major childhood health concern because of its adverse impact on cognitive development. This study investigated the absorption kinetics of Pb from indoor dust following a single dose instillation into C57BL/6 mice. Blood Pb concentration (PbB) was assessed over 24 h, and the dynamics of particles in the lung and gastro-intestinal (GI) tract were visualized using X-ray fluorescence (XRF) microscopy. The influence of mineralogy on Pb absorption and...[Show more]
