Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


Experiments on rats showed that preparations with a marked prophylactic action against the development of pulmonary edema in unirradiated animals are in some cases ineffective (or may even aggravate the development of edema) in irradiated (650 R) rats. Conversely, substances ineffective or detrimental in unirradiated animals may have a marked prophylactic action in irradiated rats.
