[Functional changes in the bronchoalveolar macrophages during the development of long-term radiation-induced pulmonary complications].


The right hemithorax of albino rats was subjected to irradiation of 14.3 Gy at a single dose of 2.2 Gy/min. Local macrophages (BM) were lavaged and studied at different time-points (1 day to 6 mos.) following irradiation.
