Abstract

PIXE as a sensitive multielemental method has been used for analysing erythrocyte and plasma samples from humans treated with telecobalt therapy in order to search for possible changes in the concentration of elemental constituents caused by the radiation load of bone marrow. The appearance of such an effect seems to be predicted by earlier radiobiological investigations based on whole-body irradiation of animals. While no systematic variation has been observed for most of the essential and trace elements, the measurements revealed an effect of the radiation load on the iron level of blood plasma in the case of patients treated with multifield irradiation.
