Effect of lead exposure on plasma phenylbutazone levels in rats.

The effect of lead exposure on phenylbutazone kinetics was studied in rats. The biological half-life (t1/2) of phenylbutazone was determined from the plasma level versus time curve in 3 groups of rats given (i) 10 mg/kg lead orally for 8 weeks (ii) 100 mg/kg single oral dose and (iii) no lead, after oral administration of 100 mg/kg phenylbutazone to all… CONTINUE READING
