Mercury Biodistribution in Rats after Chronic Exposure to Mercury Chloride

Mariana Z. G. Fornazier; Tatiani B. Nascimento; Vinicius B. Marques; Tatiana D. Saint'Pierre; Dalton Vassalo; Geisamanda P. Brandão; Leonardo dos Santos; Maria T. W. D. Carneiro

In this work we evaluated the mercury biodistribution after different doses of HgCl2. Mercury was deposited preferentially in some tissues while the blood levels remained practically constant. Therefore, it is suggested that blood mercury monitoring is relevant only when the tissues turn saturated.
