Time-related changes in lymphatic clearance in pig skin after a single dose of 18 Gy of X rays.

Abstract

The early and late effects of X rays on lymphatic microcirculatory function have been investigated in pig skin. Paired estimates of lymph clearance were performed in irradiated and unirradiated sites on the flank skin of anaesthetized Large White pigs at 3, 6, 9, 12, 26, 39, 52, 64 and 78 weeks after a single dose of 18 Gy of X rays.
