Serum Lipids, Proteins and Electrolyte Profiles in Rats Following Total Body Irradiation

Issue: 
Pages: 
117–21
Synopsis: 
Cumulative total body irradiation caused subtle but significant changes in serum lipids, electrolytes and protein which may be due to non-specific stress reactions. As such, they are important markers in the diagnosis of radiation induced injury.


ABSTRACT

Objective: Serum lipid and electrolyte imbalances are common in critically ill patients undergoing radiation therapy. Although multiple disease states and medication may be responsible for the development of these disorders, the aim of this research is to sequentially document the effect of total body radiation on body function utilizing the sequential changes in the serum lipids, electrolytes and protein in rats.
