Abstract : Experiments were conducted using men and Rhesus monkeys to examine the variability of responses within and between species as well as parameter variability in time. The monkeys were exposed to 400 Roentgens of ionizing radiation. Five classes of data were collected: behavioral, hematological, blood chemistry, electrophoretic, and electrophysiological. Several parameters were measured repeatedly within each data class. Data analyses showed that in general: (1) the between species variables correlate sufficiently to provide a basis for extrapolating monkey radiation effects data to humans; (2) these variables show no significant time trends; (3) some of the variables within each data class were significantly altered by radiation; (4) monkey pre- and post-radiation groups could be formed; and (5) predictors could be identified.
