  In lead poisoning, the urine tests + for increased Delta ALA.
If we follow UW, Delta ALAsynthase is affected.............No Delta ALA in urine.

Delta ALA Dehydrase & Ferrochelatase are the enzymes affected in lead poisoning.

Some Q in UW are wrong. Last month CD45 pointed about it too. If you have the time you can email them about it , it would help others when they take the Q bank.

Thanks & Best wishes.

  You are right grace98, there are some mistakes in UW, despite its very good Q. One of their mistakes regards null hypothesis, when they informed it can be accepted. According to kaplan, null hypothesis either rejected or failed to be rejected... but never accepted.
