Abstract:

The results of continued observation of burro survivors of sublethal doses of total-body gamma-ray irradiation are reported. Five deaths occurred during the observation period of this project, 3.6 years from November 1954 to May 1958. In four decedents cause of death was associated with irradiation experience. The survivors seemed to make an early clinical and hematologic recovery and now appear to enjoy normal health and condition. With two years after irradiation blood elements and weights were observed to be within values exhibited by nonirradiated controls.
