    In our previous studies, IB-MECA, an adenosine A(3) receptor agonist, was found to stimulate proliferation of hematopoietic progenitor and precursor cells in mice. This property of IB-MECA was considered to be responsible for its ability to support regeneration of suppressed hematopoiesis after irradiation with sublethal doses of y-rays when the drug was given in a post-irradiation treatment regimen. This study was aimed at assessing the ability of IB-MECA to influence a 30-day survival of lethally irradiated mice. In a series of experiments, IB-MECA was administered following various lethal radiation doses in various numbers of drug doses and various administration routes. Though in some of these experiments a moderate increase in 30-day survival was observed in IB-MECA-treated mice, the differences in comparison with the controls were not significantly different.
