Abstract

The object of this work was to investigate possible interactions of mercury, cadmium and selenium in humans, Selenium and cadmium in blood and urine were determined in this cross-sectional study of 130 males, of whom 77 had been previously exposed to mercury vapour at a chloralkali plant, Of the participants, 61.5% were smokers and 16.2% were never-smokers, The concentration of selenium in blood (B-Se) was significantly lower in subjects currently smoking more than 50 g of tobacco perweek compared to never-smokers, whereas the concentration of cadmium in blood (B-Cd) was significantly higher in all categories of current smokers, In the multiple linear regression analysis, B-Se as a dependent variable was negatively associated with B-Cd, whereas current smoking habits were not included in the model as a predictor variable, In contrast, B-Cd as a dependent variable was positively associated with current as well as previous smoking habits, and negatively with both B-Se and the 'cumulative dose' of previous mercury vapour exposure, The concentration of selenium in blood was also negatively associated withB-Cd in the group of never-smokers (Spearman's r = -0.80; P < 0.001),In conclusion, these results suggest a depressive effect of cadmium on the concentration of selenium in blood, while smoking alone did not operate as a true predictor for this effect, Furthermore, previous exposure to mercury apparently modifies the concentration of cadmium in blood, (C) 1997 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
