Nickel Absorption and Elimination in Human Volunteers
This study was performed to confirm and extend the observations of Solomons et al. (1982) concerning the inhibitory effect of food on intestinal absorption of nickel in human volunteers. The protocol included (a) stringent precautions against nickel contaminination, (b) quantitation of nickel elimination in feces, and (c) analyses of nickel in body fluids and excreta by sensitive and specific techniques of electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry.
