Abstract

Germfree and conventional CFW mice were evaluated for elevations in serum CSF levels at varying time intervals after 850 R whole body irradiation. Conventional mice showed elevations of CSF levels on Days 6–9 while sera from germfree mice were inactive on Days 1–10. The data suggests that the bacterial flora of the gut play a role in the elevations of serum CSF seen after irradiation. The technical assistance of Mrs. Mildred Rosen-field is gratefully acknowledged.
