Sham-exposed controls and 55-Mev-proton irradiated primates have been periodically weighed for 7 years following whole-body surface exposure. The primates exposed at the 400- and 600-rad levels have smaller body wieghts than the age- and sex-matched control primates. This finding indicates a possible chronic radiation effect. Author
