Skin wounding at 24 h before whole-body 60Co irradiation of mice raised the LD50/30 from 8.09 to 9.71 Gy resulting in a dose reduction factor of 1.2. Concentrations and quantities of myeloproliferative cells were examined at 3, 7, 10, and 14 days after 7 Gy, skin wounding 24 h before 7 Gy and in control non-treated mice. Wounding before irradiation provoked… CONTINUE READING
