The distribution in various organs and tissues of the rat at different times, of i.v. injected ferric hydroxide, Fe-EDTA, Fe-fructose complex and Fe-albumin labeled with 59Fe has been studied. Fe-EDTA and Fe-fructose complex are readily excreted. On the contrary ferric hydroxide and Pe-albumin remain m liver, spleen, bone and blood cells. After 24 hr, the Fe-albumin radioactivity in the organism has a little change throughout the whole experiment.
