A 51-chromium-labeled ethylenediamine tetra-acetic acid ((51)Cr-EDTA) permeability blood test was validated as a method to assess damage to the small intestine in dogs. The test was performed by calculating various percentages from sera after an orally ingested dose solution. The aim of the current study was to determine whether the use of serum or plasma had any influence on the results of the test. A test solution with 3.7 megabecquerel (100 µCi) of (51)Cr-EDTA was delivered through an… CONTINUE READING
