Abstract:

Contents The influence of X-irradiation on the reductase activity of the livers of rats Influence of X-irradiation and a nitrogen mustard on the development of a thiophosphate-oxidizing enzyme system in the livers of young male rats The influence of various chemical compounds on radiation-induced changes in enzyme activities in certain rat tissues Modification and dosimetry of the plutonium-beryl lium neutron irradiation facility Effect of dose rate on life span shortening of mice exposed to chronic low level fast neutron irradiation. Studies on the toxicity of rare earth compounds and their influence on radiation lethality Histology findings in the blood vessels of rats and mice exposed to acute and chronic x-irradia tion while fed various synthetic high fat diets The influence of various chemical compounds on radiation lethality in mice Further studies on the mechanism of radioprotec tion afforded by cyanide and various nitriles Radioprotective effects in proton- irradiated mice pretreated with chemical protectors
