Lead Poisoning Pediatric Research and Clinical Trials

At Boston Children's Hospital's Pediatric Environmental Health Center, our staff are doing research to answer important questions about lead poisoning, including:

  • How does lead affect children of different ages?

  • What is the best way to treat children with lead poisoning? When should medications that bind metals be used?

  • For adolescents that work: what type of toxic exposures do they have and how can overexposures be prevented?

  • What do other health professionals, such as pediatric primary care providers, need to know about pediatric environmental health?

  • What are the best ways to promote education about pediatric environmental health issues?
