Abstract

IN two previous communications1,2, the relative concentrations of diamino-diphenyl sulphone in body fluids and affected and healthy tissues of leprosy patients were compared. It was shown that the drug was preferentially concentrated in the affected tissues. In these studies the assay of radioactive drug in any tissue was made by counting macerated samples with the help of a Geiger–Müller counter.
