A method for the study of cation transport in vivo: effects of digoxin administration and of chronic renal failure on the disposition of an oral load of rubidium chloride.
In order to study cation transport in vivo we have measured the changes in plasma and intra-erythrocytic rubidium concentrations following an oral load of rubidium chloride. The changes in plasma rubidium concentration are related to the distribution of rubidium to all the body tissues and the changes in intra-erythrocytic rubidium concentrations provide an example of rubidium uptake by one particular tissue. In eight healthy volunteers pretreatment with a loading dose of digoxin (20 microgra...Expand abstract
