Male C57Bl/Cnb and BALB/c mice were exposed to single and fractionated d(50) + Be neutrons or 137Cs gamma rays at 12 weeks of age and were followed for life-shortening and disease incidence as ascertained by autopsy and histological examinations at the time of spontaneous death. Fractionation schedules used were 10 exposures at 24-h intervals and 8 exposures at 3-h intervals for gamma rays, and 8 exposures at 3-h intervals for neutrons. The data were analyzed by the Kaplan-Meier procedure using… CONTINUE READING
