Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


Experiments were conducted on rabbits with the initial signs of chronic radiation sickness. The following changes were observed in the affected animals: decrease of pupillary reaction to light and intensification of pupillary reactions induced by pharmacological substances affecting the central nervous system and the ganglionic apparatus (morphine, nicotine, tetraethylammonium). Reaction of the pupils to pilocarpine and homatropine remained unchanged.
