Abstract : Contents include the following: (1) Effects of WR-1065 and WR-151326 on survival and neoplastic transformation in C3H/10T1/2 cells exposed to TRIGA or JANUS fission neutrons; (2) Behavioral differences of irradiated persons associated with the Kyshtym, Chelyabinsk, and Chernobyl nuclear accidents; (3) Involvement of superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase in attenuation of radiation-induced hyperthermia; (4) Implication of nitric oxide synthase in radiation-induced decrease in hippocampal noradrenaline release in rats; (5) Energy deposition in a spherical cavity of arbitrary size and composition; (6) Inhibition of c-kit ligand/steel factor by antibodies reduces survival of lethally irradiated mice; (7) Effects of combined administration of interleukin- 6 and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor on recovery from radiation-induced hemopoietic aplasia; (8) Synergistic roles of interleukin-6, interleukin-1, and tumor necrosis factor in the adrenocorticotropin response to bacterial lipopolysaccharide in vivo; (9) Electron paramagnetic resonance detection of nitric oxide-dependent spin adducts in mouse jejunum; (10) Radiolysis of dinucleoside monophosphates by high-energy electrons and fission neutrons; (11) Effects of sublethal doses of ionizing radiation; and (12) Differences in unwinding of supercoiled DNA induced by the two enantiomers of anti-benzo(a) pyrene diol epoxide.
