Elimination - Gallium (Ga)

  • After an intravenous injection of Ga chloride or Ga citrate to rats, more Ga from the chloride was excreted in the urine after 6 hours than the citrate. However, the total 96 hour urinary excretion of Ga was 59 and 73% after Ga chloride or Ga citrate injection, respectively. The total 96 hour fecal Ga excretion was 3.3 and 7.8% after injection of the chloride and citrate, respectively (King et al., 1951; Brucer et al., 1953).
