Ethylmercury is a major component of thimerosal, a vaccine preservative, and it has neurotoxic effects that are similar to those of methylmercury, but its tissue deposition and clearance rates in organisms are not well-understood. In order to better understand the tissue deposition patterns of mercury originating from vaccines, a rapid, sensitive, simple analytical method for determining mercury species in biological tissues was developed at Brooks Rand Labs and our own Dr. Joel Creswell presented our findings at the 33rd Annual Meeting of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.
