Abstract

There are observable differences in the way in which the liver handles 198Au and 99T(m)c sulfur colloids. Studies were made with serial autoradiography following intravenous injection of these two colloids into mice. 198Au colloid passes through three distinct stages of phagocytosis by Kupffer's cells. In sharp contrast, 99T(m)c sulfur colloid does not.
