The biological activity of catecholamines in rabbits at various intervals after irradiation
The biological activity of catecholamines isolated from the anterior chamber's aqueous humor at various periods of radiation sickness was assessed. For this purpose a study was made of the disturbances in the work of the isolated frog heart and the changes occurring in desympathized pupil diameters in response to catecholamine administration. On the basis of the data obtained it is shown that catecholamines are biologically active during the whole period of radiation sickness.
