In experiments with dogs the acute radiation sickness was caused by common relatively uniform 3.5 Gy dose gamma-irradiation. Reinfusion of UV-irradiated autologous blood induced undoubted curative effect, which manifested itself in increased mean life, reduced mortality, more full restoring of blood-formation.
