Drosophila as a model for lead toxicity. Recent report.

Hirsch HV, Lnenicka G, Possidente D, Possidente B, Garfinkel MD, Wang L, Lu X, Ruden DM. Drosophila melanogaster as a model for lead neurotoxicology and toxicogenomics research. Front Genet. 2012;3:68. PubMed PMID: 22586431; PubMed Central PMCID: PMC3343274.

The authors point out that parallels between the effects of lead poisoning and disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) suggest that studying lead neurotoxicology might have impact in additional fields of study.
