Abstract : INVESTIGATIONS INDICATED SPECIFIC PROOF OF THE RADIATION-INDUCED FORMATION OF TOXIC SUBSTANCES. After a single short-timed total body irradiation of 400 r, 600 r, and 800 r a considerable increase of the excretion of 3-hydroxytyramine, 1-noradrenaline, adrenaline, tryptamine, 5-hydroxytryptamine, bufotenine and histamine was observed in the urine of rats. Also, in the blood of the irradiated rats, there was an increase of the named aromatic amines. (Author)
