Abstract : The results of extensive clinical and experimental research on systemic reactions of the organism during exposure to radiation is presented. The investigations include: the biological effect of small radiation doses as manifested in the initial reactions of the nervous system, functional reactions of the organism during irradiation with lethal doses, and special aspects of death in animals due to radiation. New methodological procedures used in the investigations are described. Problems of the compensation by the organism of functions disrupted by radiation injury are examined and the various compensatory reactions classified. Further experiments designed to explore the capacities of the organism for compensating radiation injuries are reported. (Author)
