Abstract : Contents: Enzymatic measurement of cumulative toxic effects of repeated doses of sulfur-containing radio protective agents The influence of various chemical compounds on the radiation-induced changes in enzyme activities in certain rat tissues Influence of X-irradiation on the susceptibility of weanling male rats to a cholinergic phos phorothioate The influence of various chemical compounds on radiation lethality in mice. Further studies on the radioprotective effect of sodium nitrite in mice Protection by mercaptoethylamine (MEA) and serotonin against radiation to gastrointestinal tract of mice Liver shielding and chronic radiation lethality in mice Studies on the toxicity of rare earth compounds and their influence on radiation lethality Effect of atherogenic diets on the survival of mice exposed to single and fractionated doses of whole body X-irradiation.
