Abstract : The effects of intratracheally administered beryllium sulfate on serum alkaline phosphatase were studied in male Macaca mulatta monkeys. Results showed 80% and 50% inhibition of the serum enzyme at 2 and 4 hours postinjection, respectively. Additional experiments were conducted using aluminum sulfate under identical conditions, and no inhibition of serum alkaline phosphatase was noted. (Author)
