Abstract

Objectives. This prospective study describes the impact of residential lead-based-paint hazard remediations on children with mildly elevated blood lead levels. Methods. Changes in blood lead levels were observed following paint hazard remediation alone and in combination with soil abatement. Results. After adjustment for the confounding variables, paint hazard remediation alone was associated with a blood lead increase of 6.5 μg/dL (P = .05), and paint hazard remediation combined with soil abatement was associated with an increase of 0.9 μg/dL (P = .36). Conclusions. Lead- based-paint hazard remediation, as performed in this study, is not an effective secondary prevention strategy among children with mildly elevated blood lead levels.
