Peripheral blood was studied in 18 monkeys (Macacus rhesus) in acute radiation sickness induced by a single x-ray irradiation with a dose of 600 r.

In the monkeys, however, typically there were accentuated varlations in the number of leukocytes during the first 24 hours, the nuclei formed an abnormally large number of segments, there was a more pronounced microthrombocytosis, and no thrombocytic irritation forms were present.
