Abstract:

The elimination of harmful biological effects of ionizing radiations is the most important problem of modern radiobiology. The recovery of an irradiated multicellular organism can take place as a result of substitution of cells which perished following irradiation by the nondamaged elements of its organs and tissues as well as through the regeneration of the damaged cells themselves. Therefore, the success in working out methods of combating radiation injuries depends on the extent of our knowledge of the role of these two processes in the pathogenesis of radiation sickness, and on the ability of influencing each of them.
