- In the past year we have looked at the transfer of some members of the actinide decay series into milk of goats. These were /sup 210/Po, /sup 203/Pb, /sup 201/Tl and /sup 207/Bi. All of these appeared in milk after oral ingestion but at levels less than 1 percent per liter. In addition we have looked at the transfer of /sup 65/Zn into milk of goats after oral and I.V. doses; the experiments are incomplete at this time. In controlled temperature studies it was found that 6.6 times as much radioiodine was secreted into milk when goats were at 33/sup 0/ as opposed to 5/sup 0/C. When radioiodine is put into the mammary gland the transfer from milk to body is rapid; more rapid than is the case for /sup 65/Zn. The analysis of these data indicate the need for a model capable of handling expansion of a compartment.
