WHOLE-BODY RETENTION OF RADIOACTIVE ALKALINE EARTHS INFLUENCED BY DIETS (A NEW ASPECT)
Phosphorus-poor diets are known to remove radioactive alkaline earthes (AE) from the skeleton. Addition of aluminium citrate to a normal diet of mice showed the same effect. The same mechanism of mobilization of AE, as in P-poor nutrition was postulated. (1) In our experiments where 133-Ba was administered i.p., we were able to show, that feeding of a diet consisting of a phosphorus-poor base diet with the addition of aluminium citrate (6 %), achieved an additional effect of mobilization of 133-Ba from the skeleton of mice. The results had been significant (p< < 0.05). At the end of the experiment there was a relative weight loss (15-17 %) in the two "treated" groups of mice and a relative weight gain (22 %) in the controls. In spite of the weight loss all mice which received the combined P-poor and Al citrate diet survived well. This corresponds with the observations of (1). In the group of animals which received the P-poor diet-only, two of five animals died.
