Description/Abstract:
TO STUDY THE BEHAVIOR AND THE EFFECTS OF INHALED RADIOACTIVE PARTICLES, MICE WERE EXPOSED TO AEROSOLS OF RU10602, PU23902, SR90S04, AGI131, AND I131 RESULTS EMPHASIZED THE DIFFERENCE IN BEHAVIOR OF TISSURE SOLUBLE AND RELATIVELY INSOLUBLE MATERIALS AFTER INHALATION. INCREASED MORTALITY FOLLOWED INHALATION OF PU2 FROM CAUSES OTHER THAT LUNG CANCER, ALTHOUGH LUNG CANCER WAS DEMONSTRATED IN MICE PREVIOUSLY GIVEN EITHER PU02 OR RU02 INTRATRACHEALLY.
