A total of 125 human lenses (97 senile cataractous and 28 clear) were analyzed by means of neutron activation analysis for trace element concentrations of copper, zinc, manganese, cobalt, rubidium, scandium, and nickel. It was found that the rubidium concentration remarkably decreased and the copper concentration moderately increased with the progression of… CONTINUE READING
