Summary The efficacy of different hexacyanoferrates(II) in preventing the enteral absorption of134Cs was studied in piglets. As compared to the controls, oral application of134Cs together with KFe[Fe(CN)6], NH4Fe[Fe(CN)6], or Fe4[Fe(CN)6]3 resulted in a strong reduction of the134Cs-uptake by more than 97%. The decrease in enteral absorption depends on the dose of administered hexacyanoferrate(II), whereas differences between the compounds under study were small. The biological half-life of134Cs in non-hexacyanoferrate(II) treated piglets was 21.6±3.3 days (mean±SD).
