The right hemithorax of rats was exposed to 3 kR of X rays; the animals were sacrificed at different times after exposure up to 9 months, and various biochemical parameters were determined. After a slight early decrease, collagen increased during the fibrotic stage. An increase during fibrosis was also seen for DNA, β-glucuronidase, cathepsin, histamine, serotonin, and lipid peroxides. Fibrinolytic activity was found to be depressed at most time points studied.
