Aims:

Aim 1: Measure the levels of early- and late-occurring impairment of the immune system in

multiple tissues (plasma, BM, spleen, thymus, lung, brain, and heart) of the same mouse (male

and female) included in the serial sacrifice, with or without exposure to a single beam of 260

MeV/n Si ions and a mixed beam of protons 1 GeV protons and 260 MeV/n Si ions, with or2828

without AP treatment.


Aim 2: Quantify the levels of early- and late-occurring oxidative damage in multiple tissues

(plasma, BM, spleen, thymus, lung, brain, and heart) of the same mouse (male and female)

included in the serial sacrifice, with or without exposure to a single beam of 260 MeV/n Si28

ions and a mixed beam of 1 GeV protons and 260 MeV/n Si ions, with or without AP28

treatment.
