In oder to investigate the effects of cobalt-60 gamma irradiation on the postnatal body gains and the other influece of the pregnant mice were subjected to single whole-body gamma irradiation externally. The results obtained were as follows: 1. The all mice of 400, 600, and 800 Rads gamma-irradiated groups showed abortion after prenatal gamma irradiation within 4 to 9 days. 2. There were significant differences of the postnatal body gains of mice between the control and treated groups (100 Rads and 200 Rads gamma irradiation). 3. The relation between gamma-irradiated doses and the postnatal growth rates of mice were inversly proportional.
