Purpose: Biological effects of X-ray irradiation and protection by melatonin on the immune status of a tropical rodent, Funambulus pennanti, was examined by estimating oxidative damage of peripheral blood and spleen and protection by melatonin treatment. Material and methods: Seventy squirrels were divided into 4 sets of 25, 25, 10 and 10 having subdivisions into a total of eight groups. Squirrels of set 1 (groups A and B) received only normal saline, set 2 (groups C and D) received 25 μg/100 g… Expand
