The relation of soluble lead to toxicity: an in vitro analysis.

Cells of human origin maintained in vitro in a phosphate-free medium (PFM) remain viable for over 24 h but lose viability rapidly in the presence of soluble lead. The threshold for this loss of viability is less than 1 ppm. In the presence of Ca-2+ in high concentrations, the cells maintain their viability. These data suggest that soluble lead is far more toxic than particulate lead, and that the protective action of the Ca-2+ ion in lead toxicity is not on a specific cell type.
