Compartmental responses after thoracic irradiation of mice: strain differences.


PURPOSE To examine and compare the molecular and cellular processes leading to radiation fibrosis and pneumonitis in C57BL/6J and C3H/HeN mice. METHODS AND MATERIALS At indicated times after various doses of thoracic irradiation, the cell populations obtained by bronchoalveolar lavage of C57BL/6J mice were differentially analyzed by cytology and assessed… (More)
