Abstract: Mus musculus treated with HgCl2 had significantly higher levels of mercury in various organs and tissues compared to HgS-treated animals. Except for the kidneys, no significant differences were found in mercury levels between HgS-treated and control mice. This appears to be due to the higher solubility of HgCl2, allowing for its greater absorption into the body. Irrespective of the mercurial administered, the kidneys contained the highest concentration of mercury, followed by the liver and brain. Mercury conferred protection against Trypanosoma evansi, possibly due to its toxicity. -from Authors
