The study included measuring the concentration of lead in the blood of workers in the refinery Qayara and its effect on biochemical variables biochemical (such as glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride (TG), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, HDL-C ; low density lipoprotein cholesterol LDL-C ;very low density lipoprotein cholesterol , VLDL-C ; albumin and Atherogenicity .
Taking group of samples of the blood of workers and addition to another group samples as a control group. The results indicated a significant increase of rate of each of (Pb, total cholesterol, TG and VLDL-C) between the working group and the control group.
The study also demonstrated for non significant increase in the proportion (glucose and LDL-C), and non significant drop in the proportion of (albumin and HDL-C). Statistical analysis did not show a significant change in the risk factor (Atherogenicity) ، For all age group .
