The effect of protein-energy malnutrition on the absorption, distribution and elimination of chloroquine in the rat.

1. Protein-energy malnutrition was induced in young rats by feeding them a protein-deficient diet. 2. The kinetics of uptake and elimination of chloroquine in various tissues were compared in normal rats, malnourished rats, and malnourished rats after recovery from malnutrition. 3.
