As the radiation doses ascended ((d) 1 Gy, (f) 2 Gy), the hematogenesis was attenuated represented by the decreased cellularity of nucleated cells and the increased number of vacuoles.
Because these values were within the normal range (WBC: 4.8~20.1; HCT: 36.951.8; MCH: 16.7-21.8; HDW: 1.8-2.7; HGB1: 3.1-17.0) and there were no histopathological changes related to them, such as an inflammatory response or hematogenesis [14, 15], the changes were considered unrelated to the PM014 administration.
