PURPOSE To evaluate the possible role of essential fatty acids, specifically gamma-linolenic and eicosapentaenoic acid, in the amelioration of early and late radiation damage to the skin. METHODS AND MATERIALS Skin sites on the flank of 22-25 kg female large white pigs were irradiated with either single or fractionated doses (20 F/28 days) of beta-rays from 22.5 mm diameter 90Sr/90Y plaques at a dose rate of approximately 3 Gy/min. Essential fatty acids were administered orally in the form of… Expand
