The effect of state-selective reactive decay on the relaxation kinetics of quantum multistate systems is studied in detail in the Bloch-Redfield approach (BRA). The results are applied to the analysis of this effect in radical pair recombination kinetics. The BRA is shown to be able to describe quantitatively most important specific features of the recombination kinetics including those predicted by phenomenological treatment and by recently proposed approaches based on quantum measurement theories.
