S Birken, R E Canfield
1974 Journal of Nuclear Medicine  
Iodine-131-asialoâ€"human chorionic gonado tropin was injected into rats to determine its usefulness as a liver.scanning agent. Thirty mm utes after injection, 86% of the desialylated hormone is found in the liver. The specific clear once reaction of this asialo glycoprotemn by he patic parenchymal cells suggests that it can be applied as an agent for liver scanning in man.
