||P.3 right column 3rd paragraph: "Using the estimated clearance rate from the blood of 0.2 min^-1 [primary source 17] as the efflux rate, e=288 d^-1, [investigators] estimate the fraction, f , and the clearance in the organ, cO, from the Zhang et al. [primary source 17] data shown in Table 1. Since in Eq. (4) the term e^(-288×(2/24))≈0, the fraction of measured radioactivity in the organ, RO, determines the parameter f in the model. Substituting the fraction of SIV RNA in the organ, VO/VP(0), the estimated efflux, e, and the fraction of radioactivity, RO, into Eq. (3), one can numerically solve for the clearance rate constants, cO, in the four organs (Table 1). The estimated clearance rates in the various organs vary from cO≈80 d^-1 in the liver to cO≈10 d^-1 in the lymph nodes. The latter is only 2-fold faster than the clearance rate of c=5.5 d^-1 estimated by Reilly et al. [BNID 112649, ref 23] for lymphoid tissue."
