Nearly a score of investigators contributed to this volume, the chapters of which resemble separate publications such as might be found in almost any periodical dealing with the medical sciences. The material consists of detailed reports concerning a great variety of findings after irradiation with neutrons; the methods and doses employed are described fully. Experimental animals included dogs, rabbits, rats, mice and chickens; plants and micro-organisms were also used. The effects of irradiation under consideration range from those on mortality, body weight, growth and "clinical" behavior to those on formed elements and sedimentation rate of the blood, ordinary "blood chemistry," gastric juice, enzymes, histologic appearances, neoplasm induction and electrophoresis of plasma and homogenized bone marrow.
