Abstract

Cats were given 6000 rads to a volume of approximately 0.25 cm3 and followed for blood-brain barrier (B-BB) breakdown by the penicillin-EEG method. They showed a variation of about 1 to 20 days before the onset of B-BB breakdown and of 20 to 80 days for recovery. This demonstrates the central role of endothelium damage and loss of B-BB function in the pathogenesis of radiation damage to the central nervous system.
