Comparative effects of two dose rates and residual injury from a sublethal γ-ray exposure were studied in dogs and monkeys. Hematopoietic response to a60 Co γ-ray exposure delivered at 66 rads/day was more pronounced in dogs than in monkeys. With a dose rate of 24 rads/day, hematopoietic response in dogs and monkeys was quite similar. Residual injury from γ-ray exposure, as measured by reduced mean survival time in a continuous 24 rad/day γ-ray environment, was significantly greater in dogs than in monkeys.
