The aim of this study was to investigate the pathological and cellular basis for radiation-induced myelopathy in guinea pigs by monitoring biochemical alterations in levels of myelin basic protein and 2',3'-cyclic nucleotide phosphohydrolase. Guinea pigs were irradiated to the lumbar region with various doses of neutrons or cobalt gamma irradiation. The… CONTINUE READING
