The distribution, retention and biotransformation of arsenobetaine, the most common organic arsenic compound in fish and crustacea, have been studied in mice, rats and rabbits by use of synthesized 73As-labelled arsenobetaine. Orally administered arsenobetaine was almost completely absorbed from the gastro-intestinal tract in mice. The urinary excretion for 3 days following intravenous injection was about 75% of the dose in the rabbits and more than 98% in the mice and rats. The rate of… CONTINUE READING
