Multiple center randomized controlled double blind clinical trait was conducted to evaluate the anti-radiotherapy effect by SOD (produced by Hunan Biochemical Work) in 159 patients. Injection of 4000U SOD immediately after receiving radiotherapy significantly reduced the occurrence rate of skin, oral mucosal, pelvic visceral and systematic adverse reaction, only the reduction of leukopenia did not reach the statistical significant level. No adverse effect of SOD injection was observed. The results suggest that SOD is a safe and effective agent to attenuate the radiotherapy reactions.
