Abstract The circulating blood platelets in mice were reduced about 60% 10 days after exposure to 300 r whole-bcdy x irradiation. When the mice were exposed to ultraviolet radiation 24 hr before the x-ray dose and plateIet count did not diminish and increased 21% in 10 days. Ultraviolet irradiation administered 24 hr after x irradiation prevented a severe decrease in platelet number. Injections of blood serum from mice treated with ultraviolet radiation prevented thrombocytopenia when given within 24 hr after x irradiation. (C.H.)
