When a substance with a long biologic half‐life is administered over an extended period with a varying dose schedule, many concerns about safety arise. In the case of rubidium chloride, which has been reported to have antidepressive activity, some of these concerns are related to the potential for unanticipated accumulation in the intracellular fluid, where replacement of more than 40% of the potassium ion is associated with toxicity in animals. A pharmacokinetic model of rubidium distribution… Expand
The effects of long-term administration of rubidium or lithium on reactivity to stress and on dopamine output in the nucleus accumbens in rats
TLDR
Long-term treatment with lithium or rubidium, or the exposure to chronic stress, produced a condition of behavioral hypo-reactivity accompanied by a decreased dopamine output in the nucleus accumbens. Expand
Multitracer Screening: Brain Delivery of Trace Elements by Eight Different Administration Methods
TLDR
Multitracer screening of trace element delivery revealed differences in brain uptake pathways among administration methods, indicating that a portion of Rb was delivered into the brain circumventing the blood circulation and that delivery could be accomplished mainly by olfactory transport. Expand
Rb+ Uptake by Human Erythrocytes and Its Transmembrane Pathway
The erythrocyte hemolysis was examined to assure Rb+ to have a weak toxicity toward human body. The way of Rb+ transporting into human erythrocytes was determined, and the factors to affect thisExpand
Rubidium‐87 magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging for analysis of mammalian K+ transport
TLDR
It was confirmed that Na+/K+ ATPase is responsible for the majority of K+ influx since Rb+ uptake is 80% ouabain‐sensitive and dependent on the intracellular [Na+]. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate neonatal and developmental toxicity of Cs as a function of maternal intake ofCsCl during pregnancy and breast feeding as well as offspring from both sexes showing increased spleen weight from control. Expand
Bioaccumulation of metals and PCBs in Raja clavata.
TLDR
Stable isotopes profiles, metals concentration and PCBs in Raja clavata muscle and liver, according to sex and size, are assessed to elucidate its suitability as a Mid-Atlantic biomonitor and suggested biomagnification processes for As and Hg in muscle tissue. Expand
Monitoring of brain potassium with rubidium flame photometry and MRI
TLDR
Brain Rb+ is detectable by 87Rb MRI and does not significantly interfere with ion dynamics in ischemic brain, which enables 87R b MRI studies of K+ in ischemia, and the Rb/(Rb+K) ratio increased over time in isChemic areas. Expand
Selenium and rubidium changes in subjects with pathologically altered thyroid
TLDR
It seems possible to use the trapping of Rb for diagnostic purposes in cases of pathologically altered thyroids and in groups of subjects with hyperthyroidism, carcinomas, or adenomas and in controls. Expand
Element concentrations in wild edible mushrooms in Finland
TLDR
The results suggest that it is recommended to avoid the consumption of A. abruptibulbus and to consume Boletus species and Suillus variegatus in moderate amounts only and the ten commercially sold mushroom species are mainly considered safe to consume. Expand
Mouse genetic background impacts both on iron and non-iron metals parameters and on their relationships
TLDR
The impact of the genetic background on iron parameters is confirmed and genetic background may also play a role in the metabolism of non-iron metals, and links between iron and other metals parameters are identified which may have implications in the understanding and, potentially, the modulation of iron metabolism.

TLDR
Five depressed patients received varying doses of rubidium chloride, up to a maximum of 370 mEq. Expand
Effects of Rubidium Chloride on the Course of Manic-Depressive Illness 1
TLDR
It seems that rubidium tends to increase the length of manic phases and possibly reduces the extremes of mood, but it has a long biological half-life and caution is still required. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that Rb 86, with its half-life of 19.5 days, may be useful under some circumstances as a tracer for potassium, at least from a qualitative point of view. Expand
