The present study was designed to assess the feasibility of using small doses of a stable isotope of Zn to follow plasma kinetics over a 10 d period and, hence, make deductions about Zn turnover and body pool sizes. At the beginning of the 10 d metabolic balance, two adults, consuming their habitual diet, were given an intravenous injection of 70Zn. There… CONTINUE READING
