The effect of ionizing radiation on the regenerative processes related to blood letting

The effect of radiation on the restorative processes connected with blood letting was studied. An analysis was made of hemoglobin content, number of erythrocytes and the spectrum of their distribution according to sizes, occurring as a result of combined blood letting and irradiation. As demonstrated, irradiation in a dose of 350 R decreased the amplitude and the duration of the erythropoiesis stimulation peak occurring due to blood letting. The latter procedure done 24 hours before irradiation had a favorable effect on the erythropoietic function, but increased the intensity of mature cell disintegration (as compared to the effect of blood letting performed 24 hours after irradiation). The value of the erythropoiesis stimulation peak was largely restored by the 6th day; however, its length was still significantly reduced.
