Substantial amounts of adriamycin [23214-92-8] were recovered in various organs after i.p. administration in rats. The highest concenration of the drug was found in the kidneys. Subcellularly, in heart, liver, and kidney, the nuclear fraction contained the highest concentration of the drug, an observation consistent with the finding that adriamycin shows greater affinity for the nuclear fraction when added to tissue homogenates in vitro. These results are discussed in relation to the cardiotoxicity of adriamycin. Procedures for improving the fluorometric method for the detection of adriamycin are also given.
