Influence of teniposide (VM-26) on radiation-induced damage to mouse spermatogenesis: a flow cytometric evaluation.


The effect of teniposide (VM-26) 0.05 mg/kg body weight treatment on spermatogenesis of mice exposed to 0, 0.5, 1, 2, and 3 Gy gamma-radiation was evaluated flow cytometrically. Whole body irradiation with 1 to 3 Gy resulted in a significant decline in testis weight from Day 14 to 35 post-irradiation depending on the exposure dose. Treatment of mice with… (More)
