This paper describes the experiments carried out to obtain more information on the toxicokinetic and metabolic behaviour of low doses of cobalt after different routes of exposure and time. In one of the experiments rats were exposed to the radionuclide 57Co(2+) in a single intraperitoneal or intravenous dose. The target tissues for cobalt depended on the dosage and route of administration. Analyses of the radioactive content of individual tissues are presented.
