ZPP Blood Test - More Information

The ZPP test, also known as a ZPP lab test and a zinc protoporphyrin test, measures the ZPP blood level.

Zinc protoporphyrin (ZPP) is a molecule found in red blood cells (erythrocytes) during abnormal states. More specifically, when the body has lead toxicity or a severe iron deficiency, it uses zinc instead of iron to form heme, resulting in the ZPP complex. As a result, in conjunction with the lead test, zinc protoporphyrin levels are sometimes used to screen for lead toxicity. The ZPP blood test can also by used as an alternative way to look for iron deficiency. Elevated ZPP levels are often the result of industrial exposure and are sometimes tested as part of OSHA requirements. Zinc protoporphyrin levels may also be found to elevated in the setting of aluminum toxicity as well as anemia of chronic disease in addition to being high in the setting of chronic lead exposure.
