Survival and changes in mean body mass of whole-body irradiated mice were determined to examine the radioprotectant activity of 5-diethylsulfonamoylsalicylatocopper(II) [Cu(II) (5-DESS)]. One of four groups of 25 female C57BL/6 mice were treated subcutaneously (sc)with 0, 10, 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, or 120 mumol Cu(II)(5- DESS)/kg of body mass 3 hours before(More)
