Because abnormal zinc protoporphyrin is an indicator of iron deficiency in the absence of elevated lead levels, researchers reviewed levels of the indicator in screening data from children ages 8-18 months at Boston Medical Center between January 2002 and December 2010.

Elevated zinc protoporphyrin associated with thalassemia trait and hemoglobin.
In that situation, some of the newer tests of iron status may be of value in the differentiation of IDA and AI, in particular measurement of serum-soluble transferrin receptors (sTfr) and red cell zinc protoporphyrin (ZPN).
Measurements of transferrin receptor and erythrocyte zinc protoporphyrin IX (ZnPPIX) concentrations have been suggested as screening tools to detect iron deficiency (1,2).
Previous studies have suggested that [delta]-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD) types 1-2 or 2-2 are protective against the toxicity of blood lead (PbB) when zinc protoporphyrin (ZPP) levels are low because of differential binding of lead in erythrocytes.
The patient's zinc protoporphyrin level was 229 [micro]g/dL (normally [is less than] 40 [micro]g/dL).
Measurements of the heme precursors free erythrocyte protoporphyrin (FEP) and erythrocyte zinc protoporphyrin (ZnP) have also been used for screening purposes.
The patient's postchelation blood lead and zinc protoporphyrin levels were 81 [micro]g/dL and 125 [micro]g/dL, respectively, and bone lead levels measured by a K-x-ray fluorescence (KXRF) instrument revealed tibia (cortical) and patella (trabecular) bone lead levels of 210 and 660 [micro]g/g bone mineral, respectively.
