After oral application of 100 ng of 26Al in 100 μg, of Al as AlCl3 to two volunteers, 26Al concentrations in blood serum and in urine were measured with accelerator mass spectrometry. Altogether 44 samples were measured in a time period of 23 days after application of 26Al. The measured data were described by an open four-compartment model. Aluminum resorption factors and rate constants for resorption, elimination and exchange between the compartments were obtained. The deduced resorption factors are in the range of 10-3.
