Radiation poisoning (or radiation sickness) was a form of organic tissue damage caused by exposure to ionizing radiation. Symptoms varied with the severity of exposure but often included fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and hair loss. Radiation could cause sterility and cancer, and, given a large enough dose, could be lethal. Its effects could be countered for a short time with hyronalin, though adrenaline was once a treatment as well. Extreme cases of theta radiation poisoning could be treated with arithrazine. (VOY: "The Omega Directive") By the 24th century, cellular damage by radiation could be prevented by taking special inoculations. Radiation poisoning could also lower calcium levels. (DS9: "Visionary") Exposure to delta radiation also caused severe disfigurement, which could be considered a form of radiation poisoning as well.
