Abstract An investigation has been made of the efficiency of a decontamination procedure in removing P32-labeled parathion from the skin surface of human volunteers. Two series of experiments were performed, the material being left on the skin for 30 and 300 minutes, respectively. The radioactivity was determined before and after the cleansing procedure, and the residue calculated as percentage of the initial count after subtraction of the background count. In the long-term group, ordinary washing with soap and water for 30 seconds left a residue of about 30% to 50%, while the residue amounted to 8% to 20% in the short-term experiment. An alcohol wash immediately after the initial cleansing still left a considerable residue--more than 10% in the 300-minute series and approximately 5% in the other series.
