In vitro evaluation of radiation-induced augmentation of the immune response.


Small doses (5--25 rads) of radiation augment the in vitro response of murine spleen cells to sheep red blood cells (SRBCs). Such augmentation appears to result from radiation-induced disruption of a homeostatic component of the response that exerts maximum effect soon after the introduction of antigen. Evidence is presented to support the concept that… (More)
