The role of various sections of the digestive tract in the excretion of radioactive calcium

Biochemistry and Biophysics


Excretion of radiocalcium with digestive fluids was studied in long-term experiments on dogs after intravenous injection of this substance. Investigations were carried out on experimental animals with isolated portions of the stomach, of the small and large intestine, as well as with exteriorized bile and pancreatic ducts. As established, the greatest amount of Ca45 was excreted with bile (up to 1% of the dose administered) and by the large intestine fistula (0.2–0.4% of that administered). The least amount of Ca45 was excreted with the stomach juice (0.02% of the injected dose).
