Elimination of 5. mu. particles from the human lung

Journal Article:

Abstract

Counting inhaled 5-..mu..m polystyrene particles tagged with /sup 51/Cr showed the elimination divided into a moderately rapid phase (10 to 20 hr total) and a longer phase (150 to 300 day half-period). There was no very rapid phase as described by other authors. Alveolar deposition (> 50 days half-life) was 25 to 75%. This generally correlated with inhaled volume.
