    Abstract

    Further experiments on the effects of lead on the mechanical fragility of the red cell confirm previous findings, that lead does not increase the mechanical fragility index of the red cell at the blood lead levels found in clinical plumbism.

    Above these levels lead does increase the mechanical fragility index, reaching its maximum effect at about 50 μg. of lead/ml. blood.
