Abstract
The cutaneous and gastrointestinal tract absorption of four tritiated luminous compounds was studied in experimental animals. The percent absorption of the individual compounds via the cutaneous route varied from 0.10 to 8.83 percent and via the gastro-intestinal route from 0.67 to 21.55 percent. The data show a positive correlation between the relative absorption of the individual luminous compounds through both the cutaneous and gastrointestinal routes. Tritium activity was eliminated in two components. A slow component was seen to represent tritium activity in the form of tritiated water (HTO), while a more rapid component was thought to be tritium incorporated in other compounds soluble in urine and other body fluids.
