Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The kinetics with which tritiated thymidine is eliminated from birds and the concentration of radioactivity remaining in the carcass after 350-430 h were measured. Birds injected with tritiated thymidine eliminated 98% of the radioactivity injected within 28 h. Ninety-eight percent was identified in the excreta, and less than 2% of the radioactivity injected remained in the birds 28 h after injection.
