Results and discussion

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The study made by the team of Golasik (2016) shows that titanium in ionic form has low oral bioavailability (3.8%) and is poorly absorbed into the circulation.

The Ti concentration 3 h after intravenous administration was about 100 times higher in serum, 10 times higher in kidneys and spleen, 8 times higher in liver than after the same time following 30-days repeated intragastric administration. The main organ for titanium deposition after administration of a soluble salt is kidney. This result might be related to the role of the kidneys with the elimination of this form of metal. The present results suggest that the exposure to ionic titanium should not result in excessive accumulation of metal in the organism.
