Salivary excretion of orally administered radio-iodine
VS Gokhale, SD Harshe, RD Kulkarni
Radioactive-iodine (I131) was administered to twelve normal healthy volunteers in a doss of ten microcuries before and after thyroxine/iodine therapy. Salivary excretion at 30 minutes and thyroid uptake. at 2 hours and at 24 hours after administration of 1131 were measured and com-pared. The results show that the salivary excretion of iodine does not seem to depend on TSH.
