fergus07 writes: Radiation is a frontline treatment for many cancers, but it can also damage the bone marrow which produces all of the body's normal blood cells.

Researchers hope PQ will be able to protect humans who are exposed to high doses of radiation, either intentionally, such as cancer patients, or accidentally.
