Diagnosis of partial body radiation exposure in mice using peripheral blood gene expression profiles.
(PLoS One, 2010-07-12)
In the event of a terrorist-mediated attack in the United States using radiological or improvised nuclear weapons, it is expected that hundreds of thousands of people could be exposed to life-threatening levels of ionizing ...
Growth hormone mitigates against lethal irradiation and enhances hematologic and immune recovery in mice and nonhuman primates.
(PLoS One, 2010-06-16)
Medications that can mitigate against radiation injury are limited. In this study, we investigated the ability of recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) to mitigate against radiation injury in mice and nonhuman primates. ...
Gene expression signatures of radiation response are specific, durable and accurate in mice and humans.
(PLoS One, 2008-04-02)
BACKGROUND: Previous work has demonstrated the potential for peripheral blood (PB) gene expression profiling for the detection of disease or environmental exposures. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We have sought to determine the ...
