Distribution and Excretion of Lead in the Rat


The kinetics of the distribution and excretion of lead (210Pb) were studied in rats for 14 days after single intravenous injections of 100 ,ug. of lead per rat. The results show that in the blood the lead is bound mainly to the cells, and that the ratio of lead in the cells and plasma is constant throughout the whole period. 210Pb is rapidly distributed in… (More)
