Effect of radiation dose rate and cyclophosphamide on pulmonary toxicity after total body irradiation in a mouse model.

Abstract

PURPOSE Interstitial pneumonitis (IP) is still a major complication after total body irradiation (TBI) and bone marrow transplantation (BMT). It is difficult to determine the exact role of radiation in this multifactorial complication, especially because most of the experimental work on lung damage was done using localized lung irradiation and not TBI.
