Calculation of the absorbed radioiodine dose in the thyroid gland is a very important factor in 131I therapy for Graves' disease. In 131I therapy, the measurement of the effective half life (EHL) of radioiodine in the thyroid gland is indispensable for calculating the absorbed radioiodine dose. In some cases, however, EHL cannot be calculated because(More)
The action of 25-hydroxy-6,19-dihydro-6,19-epidioxyvitamin D3 [25-(OH)D3 endoperoxides, 2a and 3a] in inducing differentiation of human myeloid leukemia cells (HL-60) was studied by using their radioactive derivatives (2a' and 3a'). When HL-60 cells were incubated with the labeled endoperoxides (2a' and 3a') in serum-free RPMI 1640 medium, no radioactivity(More)
In vitro metabolism of 25-hydroxy-24-oxovitamin D3 was studied in kidney homogenates from vitamin D-supplemented chickens and rats. In chicken homogenates, 25-hydroxy-24-oxovitamin D3 was converted predominantly to 23,25-dihydroxy-24-oxovitamin D3, 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, and 23,24,25-trihydroxyvitamin D3. In rat homogenates, 25-hydroxy-24-oxovitamin D3(More)
