Relative toxicity of chronic irradiation by 45Ca beta particles and 242Cm alpha particles with respect to the production of lung tumors in CBA/Ca mice.

Priest, Nicholas, Hoel, D. G. and Brooks, P. N. (2006) Relative toxicity of chronic irradiation by 45Ca beta particles and 242Cm alpha particles with respect to the production of lung tumors in CBA/Ca mice. Radiation Research, 166 (5) . pp. 782-793. ISSN 0033-7587

Abstract

A unique study of the relative RBEs of a- and b-radiation where both the temporal and spatial distribution of dose are ~ coincident. RBE ratios produced for benign and malignant lung tumours. Results produced suggest that RBE values are both tumour and dose-specific. RBE values of 1 to 10.
