  • Measurements of specific activity in water from saliva and plasma samples taken simultaneously from the same person, following oral administration of tritiated water, were compared in a group of 34 adults, with a wide range of total body water values. The results showed that on average there was no detectable difference (P>0.10) between the specific activities of the plasma and saliva samples. Therefore, there is no significant difference between values for total body water derived from paired… CONTINUE READING
