Lead Poisoning Pediatric Research and Clinical Trials

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

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?

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
