Abstract : Three groups of five beagles were exposed to 400 rads of fission spectrum neutrons, 400 r 250 KVP X rays or 10 millicuries of a radionuclide mixture to determine the extent of radiation insult for each dose. The hematological response observed in each irradiation group was very similar, but differed in time of onset. (Author)
