The International Symposium on Lead-Blood Pressure Relationships was held in Chapel Hill, NC, April 27-29, 1987. The program was structured so as to first present an overview of theories and findings in the general area of human hypertension and then to have speakers review the extent literature on lead and blood pressure relationships, including papers on: the human observational studies of lead and hypertension; related studies of lead and human hypertension; occupational studies of lead and hypertension; experimental studies of lead and hypertension; and papers presenting related information from work in progress. The report summarizes key exchanges of information during discussions after individual papers were presented or during separate discussion sessions. It also summarizes presentations by several speakers who declined to publish in these presentations full-length papers on ongoing work.
