Exposure to ionizing radiation modifies neurally-evoked electrolyte transport and some inflammatory responses in rat colon in vitro.

Abstract

PURPOSE To characterize the responsiveness of the colon to neural stimulation following acute exposure of rats to gamma-radiation and to correlate observed changes to a number of parameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS Rats were exposed to 5 or 10 Gy 137Cs gamma-radiation or not (sham-irradiated) and studied at 1, 3 and 7 days after irradiation. Stripped… (More)
