Argonne Cancer Research Hospital Semiannual Report on Medical Research to the Atomic Energy Commission

Description: Progress in radiobiology and caneer research is reported. Topics covered include: comparison of the effects of isologous, homologous, and heterologous hematopoietic tissues on post-irradiation survival; survival of transfused blood in rats; erythropoietic response to erythropoietin; inhibition of erythropoiesis by estrogens; tryptophan metabolism; effect of daily exposure to l5-r gamma radiation on susceptibility of mice to experinrental infection; restorailon of serum bactericidal activity and prevention of its loss in x- irradiated mice; immunohistochemical study of Ehrlich ascites tumor; comparison of effects of I/sup 131/-induced hypothyroidism and L-triiodothyronine on irradiated hair roots in mice; modification of radiation responses of tissue by colchicine; production and use of I/sup 131/; localization of ocl evaluation of brain scanning system; thick target yield and excitation function for the reaction Rh/sup 103/(p,n)Pb/sup 103/; incorporation of C/sup 14/ and tritium precursors into brain; net synthesis of RNA with a microleial enzyme requiring DNA and four ribonueleoside triphosphates; snythesis of (P/sup 37/) uridine 5'- phosphate; and of 17- alpha -hydroxyprogesterone-4-C/sup 14/-l7 alpha -caproate by homogenates of rat liver and human placenta.

Argonne Cancer Research Hospital Semiannual Report on Medical Research to the Atomic Energy Commission

Description: Progress is reported in the following studies: carbohydrate metabolism in human erythrocytes; the development of a system of electron therapy employing a linear electron accelerator and an electromagnetic beann deflector; the capacity of progesterone to inhibit the sodium-retaining influence of aldosterone and desoxycorticosterone; use of tritium-labeled cholesterol in measuring the lability of cholesterol in human atherosclerotic plaques; the capacity of a number of steroid hormone metabelites to provoke fever in man; the failure of human placental tissue homogenates to convent progesterone to estrogens; and tracer studies on enzyme requirements for the incorporation of cytidine triphosphate into ribonucleic acid in a mammalian system.
