Methods which are in current use for the calculation of the albumin breakdown rate apply only to the steady state animal. In this paper a simple but more general method based on analyses of I131-albumin tracer data is presented. It utilizes easily measured plasma specific activity and excretory data and is equally applicable to the steady and non-steady states.
