Plasma marking of arctic foxes with iophenoxic acid.


PMID 3682104

Abstract

Six arctic foxes (Alopex lagopus) were marked with iophenoxic acid (IA), a substance which elevates concentrations of protein-bound iodine in blood plasma. Buccal absorption of IA was determined by placing 20 mg IA dissolved in 100% ethyl alcohol on the tongue. Blood samples collected from 1 to 36 wk following exposure showed that all foxes were marked already at 1 wk and continued until 13 wk; two foxes were still marked at 36 wk. Clearance rates for iodine varied with initial dose response, and those foxes with high 1-wk iodine concentrations excreted iodine more rapidly than those with lower initial concentrations; by 13-wk excretion rates were similar.
