The response of mouse intestine to combined hyperthermia and radiation: the contribution of direct thermal damage in assessment of the thermal enhancement ratio.

Abstract

The thermal enhancement of X-ray damage to mouse jejunum has been assessed when heating was achieved by immersion of an exteriorized loop of intestine in Krebs-Ringer solution. The results have been compared with those previously obtained following heating in situ. The primary effect of 1 hour of mild hyperthermia was to reduce the should of the crypt… (More)
