This paper reports on the effect of radiation on the nonspecific cytotoxicity of rat alveolar macrophages (AM). AM (effector cells) of bacille Calmette-Guerin-activated Wistar rats were irradiated with 60Co gamma rays in vitro to give doses of 0, 100, 300, and 500 Gy. Three hours after irradiation, the AM were cultured with human lung adenocarcinoma AGZY83… CONTINUE READING
