Description/Abstract:
NINETEEN-PAGE ARTICLE "THE APPLICATION OF EXCRETION ANALYSES TO THE DETERMINATION OF BODY BURDEN OF RADIOACTIVE ISOTOPES" WRITTEN BY WRIGHT H. LANGHAM, PH.D., PUBLISHED IN THE BRITISH JOURNAL OF RADIOLOGY 1957. APPLICATION OF EXCRETION ANALYSES TO THE QUANTITATIVE ESTIMATION OF TOTAL BODY BURDEN REQUIRES A PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF THE EXCRETION RATE, PREFERABLY BY MAN, OF THE MATERIAL IN QUESTION. THE EXCRETION RATE OF SPECIFIC RADIOACTIVE NUCLIDES BY MAN IS NOT ALWAYS AVAILABLE, SO THAT IT IS NECESSARY TO USE DATA COLLECTED FROM EXPERIMENTAL ANIMALS. EXTRAPOLATION OF ANIMAL DATA TO MAN IS SUBJECT TO CONSIDERABLE CRITICISM. THERE IS NO WAY TO CIRCUMVENT SUCH CRITICISM, HOWEVER, UNTIL ADEQUATE EXPERIMENTAL DATA HAVE BEEN COLLECTED FROM HUMAN SUBJECTS.
