    The urinary lead excretion of 41 healthy subjects was compared before and three and six hours after the injection of sodium calciumedetate. All subjects showed a marked rise in lead excretion after the injection. The mean value + 2 S.D. was calculated. The authors consider that this method, which does not require hospitalization, is of value in the diagnosis of contact with lead.
