The interaction of Adriamycin with radiation damage in the mouse lung has been shown to disappear with the same kinetics as those for the slow repair of such radiation damage. Split-dose experiments have demonstrated that Adriamycin inhibits this slow repair process whereas the drug has no effect on the repair of sublethal damage in irradiated mouse lung.
