Figure 1: Blood lead concentration and P5N-related analysis. (a) An approximate 4-fold increased BLL was seen in opium-addicted patients compared with control group. (b) Enzymatic activity of P5N in erythrocytes of opium-addicted patients was significantly lower than control group. (c) In contrast to enzymatic activity, protein amount of P5N in erythrocytes of patients was significantly higher than controls. (d) In line with decreased P5N activity, purine/pyrimidine ratio of the nucleotides in erythrocytes of the opium-addicted patients was lower than control subjects. ***P < 0.001
