Acute atomic radiation injury: its physiological and biochemical pathogenesis with a note on therapy
MetadataShow full item record
This paper deals with the fundamental mechanisms through which atomic radiation injures living cells aDd thereby injures the human organism. No attempt has been mde to leal exhaustively with aey one point; rather the attempt has been to present a broad orientation within the field and then to present sufficient data to allow the formulation of the most reasonable hypothesis which will account for the changes observed in radiation injury. The material selected for presentation and discussion has been chosen from the work of researchers who seem to have contributed data or hypotheses which appear fundamental to the concept of radiation injury.
