A number of compounds were studied that protected mice against LD50/30 after X-irradiation. For three compounds (WR 109342, WR 158490 and WR 159243) dose reduction factors between 1.7 and 1.8 were obtained after oral administration. Blood taken from mice that had been treated with these protective compounds provided virtually no protection of HeLa cells in vitro, whereas when blood from cysteamine treated mice was tested in vitro, protection could be demonstrated. This may indicate different… 

xCT inhibition sensitizes tumors to γ-radiation via glutathione reduction

TLDR
It is concluded that an xCT-specific therapeutic would provide tumor-specific sensitization to RT, allowing treatment with lower radiation doses, and producing far fewer side effects than other proposed sensitizers.

Radioprotective activity of ethylcellulose microspheres containing WR 2721, after oral administration.

TLDR
Ethylcellulose microspheres containing WR 2721 were prepared by the emulsion-solvent evaporation technique and the interest of such carriers for providing important sustained radioprotection after oral administration is confirmed.

Effects of medicinal plants on hemopoietic cells.

TLDR
Oral administration of TJ-48 accelerates recovery from hemopoietic injury induced by radiation and the anti-cancer drug mitomycin C, and the effects are found to be due to its stimulation of spleen colony-forming units.

TLDR
It is suggested that the protection properties of S-75 should be tested in another laboratory animal not having such a marked splenic haemopoiesis as the mouse.

TLDR
In tissue culture, protection against X-irradiation by a number of cysteamine derivatives was studied and the results were compared with data obtained in mice and the only compound studied whose protective activity in vitro was improved appreciably by dissolving it in rat plasma.

Phase I clinical studies with WR-2721.

TLDR
Animal studies suggest that the level already safely reached could give significant protection to the normal tissues without protecting tumor, and combining WR-2721 with conventional radiotherapy is contemplated.

TLDR
Female mice of the Walter Reed Bagg Swiss or Inbred Charles River strains, 5-6 weeks old and weighing 21-25g, were randomly assigned to treatment groups and subjected to a post mortem examination for antiradiation testing.

Radioprotection by thiazolidines at the cellular level.

TLDR
The results support a previous suggestion by Terol, Fernandez, Robbe, Châpat, Granger and Sentenac-Rovmanov that the thiazolidines proper and not their hydrolysis products are responsible for radioprotection.
