Radiation Effects on Cells of the RES

  • K. Flemming
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 73B)


From the biological point of view, radiation as an environmental factor may be considered as a drug. Following high doses of whole body X-radiation (WBR), toxic effects must be exerted on all cells of the organism, including cells of the RES. According to the literature, however, different effects have been reported concerning phagocytosis (decreases, increases and no changes).
