We utilized autoradiography to visualize radioactive contamination in the skeletal muscles of a pig raised within 20 km of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant following the nuclear accident. The autoradiogram of control muscle showed relatively homogenous exposure. In contrast, the autoradiogram of affected muscle showed a heterogeneous and sporadically dense imaging pattern. Photo luminescence densities of the affected and control muscles were 3.89 ± 0.67 and 2.13 ± 0.43 PSL/mm2, respectively. This difference indicated that radioactive cesium was distributed in the skeletal muscle of the affected pig.

Soil samples from the ground surface and feces and blood from a mixed-breed male pig were collected on April 10, 2011 at a farm within 20 km of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The radioactivity of each sample was measured using a Ge semiconductor detector. Despite the fact that the pig had been fed non-contaminated imported feed, 131I, 134Cs, and 137Cs were detected in the feces, and 134Cs and 137Cs were detected in the blood clots. Because it is considerably difficult to measure radioactive contamination in the edible muscle of living livestock, bioassays are an option for the screening of radioactive contamination in living livestock to ensure food safety.

We examined the correlation between the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimated from an equation based on the serum iodixanol clearance technique and International Renal Interest Society (IRIS) stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in cats. The equation included the injection dose, sampling time, serum concentration, and estimated volume of distribution (Vd) of the isotonic, nonionic, contrast medium iodixanol as a test tracer. The percent changes in the median basal GFR values calculated from the equation in CKD cats resembled those of IRIS stages 1–3. These data validate the association between the GFR derived from the simplified equation and IRIS stages based on the serum creatinine concentration in cats with CKD. They describe the GFR ranges determined using single-sample iodixanol clearance for healthy cats and cats with various IRIS stages of CKD.

A quantitative assay method by LC/ESI-MS/MS for the simultaneous determination of MCP in cattle plasma was developed and validated. The chromatographic separation was carried out using a multimode column (2 mm × 150 mm, 3 μm) with gradient elution (0.05% formic acid/methanol with 0.05% formic acid). MCP and levosulpiride (internal standard) were analyzed in the precursor/product ion pair of m/z 300.1/226.9 and m/z 342.0/112.0, respectively. Linear calibration curves were obtained in the range of 2.5–500 ng/ml (R2>0.999) with a lower limit of quantification of 0.05 ng/ml. Mean recoveries were 96–103% and a coefficient of variation was less than 6.5%. Plasma MCP concentrations after 0.4 mg/kg intravenous administration to 12 cattle were determined by the LC-MS/MS method.
