Two 3-μC doses of 4-C14-estradiol-17 beta were administered intravenously to each of 6 patients with normal hepatic, cardiac, and renal function, 2 patients with viral hepatitis, and 2 patients with Laennec's cirrhosis. Plasma samples were taken at 15, 30, 60, 120, and 240 minutes after injection, extracted with chloroform (85 to 99% recovery of added tritiated estradiol), and assayed for C14 radioactivity in a liquid scintillation counter. Plasma half-times of total administered radioactivity were calculated from the disappearance curves obtained; these showed no significant differences in hepatic disease without ascites (78 to 155 minutes) from normal values (105 to 145
