Researchers Develop New Drug That Protects Against Nuclear Radiation Effects

 

Researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch developed a new drug to counter nuclear radiation poisoning.

TP508 was initially used to repair skin, bone and muscle tissues. A single injection of the peptide drug given 24 hours after a potentially-lethal radiation exposure significantly increased survival rates and delayed mortality in mice.

Researcher Carla Kantara says it "may be an effective emergency nuclear countermeasure that could be delivered within 24 hours after exposure to increase survival and delay mortality, giving victims time to reach facilities for advanced medical treatment".
