Antibody Formation after Irradiation and its Cellular Background
- 10 Downloads
During the past 15 years a great number of experiments have been devoted to the study of immunological processes from the point of view of the mechanism of the immune response and its role in the control of both specific and unspecific defence of the organisms. This large amount of experimental and clinical work has led to a complete renewal of our knowledge in this field. In most cases, the inhibitory effect of ionizing radiation on various steps of the immune response has been used with the purpose either to analyse a specific aspect of the immune process or to obtain new information on the radiosensitivity of the cellular components involved in immunity (13, 18).
