Abstract
Chromium isotope uptake as an index of radiation damage of recovery is especially useful since it permits a large number of animals and a wide variety of organs to be examined simultaneously. It can also be used to determine the value of radioprotective drugs or mixtures of drugs in protecting various organs of the body against different doses of X-irradiation. S-2-Aminoethylisothioureadihydrobromide (AET), serotonin (5HT), or the mixture of AET + 5HT appeared to aid the recovery of all of the organs studied except the tests, and the mixture of AET + 5HT provided better protection than either agent used singly.
