Clinical and laboratory studies of metal sensitivity.
Terminal Progress Report 1976 Mar; :1-9
Nickel levels in the tissues of rabbits implanted with nickel (7440020) containing stainless steel pins were not significantly higher than the levels determined in the blood and other organs of control animals. Atomic absorption spectrometry failed to reveal significant differences between the nickel content of hour samples from experimental and control animals. The findings suggest that hair is not a tissue for valid biopsy in the assessment of nickel ingestion.
