Acquired radioresistance after low dose X-irradiation in mice

, : Acquired radioresistance after low dose X-irradiation in mice. Journal of Radiation Research 31(3): 256-262

Low doses (2.5-15 cGy) of X-irradiation two months prior to a second exposure to a sublethal dose enhanced the survival rate in mice. Optimal and significant increase was observed with 5-10 cGy. Endogenous spleen colony counts (endo-CFUs) after 7 Gy increased by a factor of about 1.7 in mice pre-irradiated with 5-10 cGy, while the number of blood forming stem cells (CFUs) in the pre-irradiated group did not exceed that in the sham-irradiated control group at the period of the second exposure (two months after irradiation with 5 cGy). The low dose exposure seems to stimulate recovery of blood forming stem cells after the second irradiation and favors a decrease in the incidence of bone marrow death.
