Abstract : The metabolism of 127m Te as tellurous acid in rats was studied by gamma-ray counting of the whole body, various tissues, and the excreta. The whole-body retention of tellurium after intraperitoneal injection or gavage may be described by a sum of exponential terms. The variation with time of the tellurium content of the analysed tissues was examined and shown to fit the whole-body retention curve. (Author)
