The aim is the establishment of a joint study of the acute effects of high dose accidental irradiation, in particular, evaluation of patients treated for acute radiation sickness after the accident; damage to the immunohaemopoietic system, which belongs to the most radiation sensitive systemic organs; and the effect on the skin. Results of the study are reported in this document. Of 237 patients suffering from acute radiation sickness, 209 survived and are in the process of rehabilitation. This wealth of patient material was used for an in depth investigation on acute as well as late radiation damage in different organs. This part of the project aims to establish dose-effect relationships for various types of organ damage.
