  • significantly
  • Studies of lung radiation injury in laboratory animals show that with enalapril, investigators can significantly reduce the severity of radiation injury to the lung. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • However, during the period of radiation treatment, the TGF-β1 level began to increase at the end of RT in the RP group and became significantly higher 4 weeks after RT ( p = 0.007). (springer.com)
  • oxygen
  • Owing to high oxygen content, production of radiation-induced reactive oxygen species (ROS)/reactive nitrogen species (RNS) is excessive in lungs. (frontiersin.org)
