Paper Abstract

Experimental results on long-term consequences of laser puncture applied to active points of the projection zones for the reproductive organs in guinea pigs after preliminary exposure to (gamma) -radiation are given. In female guinea pigs, it was shown that combination of external radiation (12.9 mCoul/kg) and incorporated 131I (6.5 mCi/kg) induced morphohistochemical and electron microscopic changes in the ovaries long (6 months) after, which indicated functional tension in the ovarian functioning. Laser biostimulation 3 months after the exposure to (gamma) - radiation induced severe injuries of the ovary, i.e. formation of thin-walled cysts, destruction of interstitial cells of the thecal sheath, by 6 months of the experiment. Functional incompetence of the organ was observed.
