Abstract

Studies of the pulmonary clearance of monodisperse fused aluminosilicate particles (FAP) inhaled by rats and hamsters were carried out to complement measurements of the clearance of FAP from the human lung. The objectives were: to ensure that the gamma-labeled FAP being prepared were sufficiently stable for measurements of long-term respiratory tract retention; to compare clearance rates of the same material in different species; and to compare clearance of this relatively inert and non-toxic material with that of the toxic materials (e. g. actinide dusts) whose clearance from the lungs of rodents is also being studied.
