Abstract The incidence of intestinal tumors in irradiated rats is reported for 51 rats irradiated at an age of 5 months and killed between 9 and 30 months later. The irradiation was performed either on the exteriorized intestine (delivered through an incision) while the rest of the body was shielded, or on the abdominal region, and the doses were varied from 700 to 1900 r (mid-lethal range). The tumors appeared in the small intestine and were observed predominantly in the upper part of the dose range. (D.L.C.)
