A low radiation dose approach to cell eradication would be highly desirable in cancer treatments in order to reduce the side ellects of conventional radiotherapy. In the present work we present a preliminary study on coltures of bone marrow mononuclear cells collected from normal subjects and patients with chronic myelogenous leukaemia (CML). Hematin (104, 10-3, 10°M) has been added to mattow culture cells which were then irradiated with a 3.7 GBq (100 mCi)57Co/Rh Mossbauer source for 4 hours. Significant inbibition has been observed on the cell growth due to hematin and irradiatron.
