    Re:The effect of low cadmium exposure on renal biomarkers

    The authors want to thank Prof. Dr. Kawada for his interest in our manuscript entitled 'Adverse effects of low occupational cadmium exposure on renal and oxidative stress biomarkers in solderers' [1]. Prof. Kawada recommends performing the multiple linear regression analysis without adjusting for pack-years of smoking. It is known that smoking is a major source of cadmium exposure [2, 3]. However, we want to underline th...

    The effect of low cadmium exposure on renal biomarkers

    Hambach et al [1] have published cross-sectional study on the associations between cadmium (Cd) exposure and renal or oxidative stress biomarkers in 36 solderers. They adopted multiple regression analysis to detect statistical significance with adjustment of age and pack-years of smoking. In contrast, there is a significant relationship between low levels of Cd exposure and N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase (NAG) [2,3], w...
