The interaction of hydrogen and hydroxyl free radicals with organic molecules results in the formation of organic free radicals. About two thirds of radiation-induced biologic damage results from indirect effects. Such reactions may involve the removal of hydrogen: RH + OHi → R i + H2O RH + Hi → R i + H2 The OH• free radical is more important in causing such damage. Organic free radicals are unstable and transform into stable, altered molecules as described in the earlier section in this chapter on direct effects (p.
Both peroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxide are oxidizing agents and are the primary toxins produced in the tissues by ionizing radiation. INDIRECT EFFECTS Indirect effects are those in which hydrogen and hydroxyl free radicals, produced by the action of radiation on water, interact with organic molecules. The interaction of hydrogen and hydroxyl free radicals with organic molecules results in the formation of organic free radicals. About two thirds of radiation-induced biologic damage results from indirect effects.
It extends from hours or days after supralethal exposures (greater than approximately 5 Gy) to a few weeks after exposures of about 2 Gy. Hematopoietic Syndrome Whole-body exposures of 2 to 7 Gy cause injury to the hematopoietic stem cells of the bone marrow and spleen. The high mitotic activity of these cells makes bone marrow a highly radiosensitive tissue. Doses in this range cause a rapid fall in the numbers of circulating granulocytes, platelets, and finally erythrocytes (Fig. 2-9). Although mature circulating granulocytes, platelets, and erythrocytes are radioresistant because they are nonreplicating cells, their paucity in the peripheral blood after irradiation reflects the radiosensitivity of their precursors.
