Measurements have been made of the gastrointestinal absorption in humans of 239Np and 242Cm administered together in citrate media. Using five volunteers, consistent results of (2.0 +/- 0.2) x 10(-4) and (1.7 +/- 0.3) x 10(-4) were obtained for Np and Cm respectively; the quoted uncertainties are the standard errors of the means. A progress report is given of work to measure the f1 value for Pu in humans. Early work suggests an f1 value of 2 x 10(-4).
