Several years ago we showed that prostaglandins (PGs) are potent radioprotective agents. To investigate further the potential use of these compounds we employed quantitative measures of murine hair loss and regrowth to assess the effects of PG administration before multi-dose fractionated radiation exposures. We compared these results with findings utilizing the thiol compounds WR-2721 or WR-1065, the "gold standard" laboratory radioprotectors. Three weeks after systemic administration of 16-16… CONTINUE READING
