Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Since we are able to bring ionizing radiation in the form of a gas cloud to the respiratory system, we have wondered whether Xenon-133 inhalation could be exploited as a treatment option against Covid-19 respiratory virus infections, and urge colleagues in the scientific research community who have the capability to do so to explore the merits of using Xenon-133 in this way to determine whether its usefulness against the Covid-19 virus is indeed genuine.
