Extravascular circulation of plasma proteins.

The escape of radioiodinated serum albumin (RISA) from the circulation and lymphatic albumin transport was investigated in anaesthetized rabbits. The fraction of RISA escaping each hour from the circulation was 0.0932 +/- 0.0075, lymphatic albumin transport in the thoracic duct was 0.0389 +/- 0.0026 in the hepatic lymph trunk 0.0115 +/- 0.016, in the… CONTINUE READING
