Male albino mice in a condition of suspended animation were X-irradiated with a dosage of 2,000 r. These animals showed a remarkably greater resistance to the X-rays than did controls that were X-irradiated only. The animals that had been in suspended animation often lived twice as long as the controls. However, in many cases they died from shock shortly after being revived.
