Ina, Y. and Sakai, K. Prolongation of Life Span Associated with Immunological Modification by Chronic Low-Dose-Rate Irradiation in MRL-lpr/lpr Mice. Radiat. Res. 161, 168–173 (2004).

Chronic low-dose-rate γ irradiation at 0.35 or 1.2 mGy/h prolonged the life span of MRL-lpr/lpr mice carrying a deletion in the apoptosis-regulating Fas gene that markedly shortens life due to severe autoimmune disease. Immunological modifications as indicated by a significant increase of CD8 T cells and a significant decrease of CD3 CD45R/B220 as well as CD45R/B220 CD40 cells were found in parallel with amelioration of total-body lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, proteinuria, and kidney and brain syndromes.
