Experimental Study of Yeast RNA Preparation as a Possible Radioprotective Agent for Radiotherapy of Malignant Tumors

We studied radioprotective effects of a preparation based on yeast RNA and its influence on therapeutic efficiency of ionizing radiation against transplanted tumors. Parenteral administration of yeast RNA preparation to mice in a dose of 10 mg 1 h prior to exposure to ionizing γ-radiation (137Cs) in a lethal dose (LD80/30) increased 30-day survival by 66… (More)
