The influence of the detergent dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate on clearance from the lungs of inhaled technetium-99m-labelled dietylenetriamine pentaacetate (99mTc-DTPA) was studied in twelve rabbits. An aerosol of dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate or its vehicle alone was administered for 5 min prior to aerosolized 99mTc-DTPA via a bag-in-bottle system. Time-activity curves were obtained from the right lung with a gamma camera. In rabbits given detergent, clearance of 99mTc-DTPA was significantly… CONTINUE READING
