Effect of cholinergic agents on survival of mice after acute microwave irradiation

Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


Administration of cholinomimetics (pilocarpine, neostigmine, cytisine) immediately after microwave irradiation (62±5 mW/cm2, λ=12.5 cm, 15–16 min) increased the survival rate of the irradiated mice by 1.2–1.3 times; after administration of cholinolytics fewer of the irradiated mice survived.

Key Words
