Radiopharmaceuticals radiomodifying agents
@_brauer_ yeah, as far as I know, the bone marrow is most damaged by strong radiation
@elizaveta-msu thanks, I see
what substances can enhance the effect of radiation on the body?
@morphism I think the question is about ordinary, non-radioactive compounds that can be present in the body and by radiation enhance the effect of this radiation
@marie-curie substances whose intracellular content enhances the radiobiological effect include oxygen, lipid hydroperoxides, a group of quinones, etc. For example, when tissues are irradiated in the presence of oxygen, a large number of radicals and peroxides appear in it, which enhance oxidation processes, and a large number of chain reactions can also begin
by the way, as far as I know, cancer cells are sometimes oxygenated to increase the effectiveness of therapy
@_brauer_ okaay, it means that by radiomodifying agents we mean substances that modify ("enhance/gain") radiation?
