Abstract : AET and hypoxia appear to act as radiation dose reducers. The present studies were conducted, using the split-dose technique, to determine the influence of these protectants on initial injury and subsequent recovery from sublethal 250 kvp X-ray exposure. The results demonstrate that recovery from theoretically equivalent doses of irradiation is slower in protected mice than in nonprotected mice. This would suggest that the initial injury in the protected and nonprotected groups is not equivalent. (Author)
