Effect of inhaled alpha-emitting nuclides on mouse alveolar macrophages.

Abstract

The effects of inhaled alpha emitters on the free cell population of the mouse lung were investigated up to 100 days after exposure. Groups of mice inhaled aerosols of 238PuO2, 239PuO2, or 241Am(NO3)3 to give alveolar deposits resulting in lung-averaged cumulative absorbed doses of about 20 Gy by the end of the study. Initially, with 238Pu most of the… (More)
