MACROPHAGE INVOLVMENT IN ACTINIDE-INDUCED LUNG DISEASE

Objective


The effects of alpha emitting transuranic nuclides on the alveolar macrophage, and the use of this cell as a marker for investigating early radiation effects on the lung, have been studied. This work is extended to the lung epithelial cells.
