Twenty male white mice were intraperitoneally injected with 210 microcuries of P-32 each. Ten were returned to a 25 degree C. environment and ten others to a 5 degree C. environment with similar food, light, and water provisions. Half of each temperature group was killed and frozen 24 hours following injection while the remaining ten were killed and frozen three weeks following injection. Relative absorptive functions of six organs were studied showing that hypothermia resulted in lower P-32 uptake and longer retention.
