Pregnant SPF Wistar rats and ICR/Swiss albino mice were injected in the tail vein with 85SrCl2 with 0.05 mM inactive carrier (SrCl2) given in volumes of 0.1 ml. The activity in the injected volume was about 14 MBq per kg of rat and 13 MBq per kg of mouse. The animals were injected at 2 or 13 days of gestation. The activity retained by the fetuses was quantitatively determined at three stages of the fetal intrauterine development: in rats at 14, 16 and 21 days of gestation, in mice at 14, 16 and 20 days of gestation. The activity of fetuses and/or placentas with fetal membranes was measured using a TESLA automatic gamma counter. Results indicate that fetuses of mice retained a significantly (P less than 0.01) greater percent of strontium activity than fetuses of rats. The highest specific activities (the percentage of total activity retained per gram of fetal tissue) were found in the late pregnancy period (at 21 days of gestation in rats and 20 days of gestation in mice) in animals that were injected with the radionuclide at 13 days of gestation.
