The program was organized to utilize existing gas chromatographic procedures in current use at the laboratories of Southwest Research Institute for screening a large number of chemical substances to determine what alterations result from radiation exposure. Rats were irradiated, blood or urine was collected from the animals, and gas chromatographic analyses were performed using three different methods. During the last quarterly period of the program monkeys were used as the experimental animals. They were irradiated and blood samples periodically taken from the animals were analyzed for amino acids.
