INACTIVATION OF HUMAN KIDNEY CELLS BY HIGH-ENERGY MONOENERGETIC HEAVY-ION BEAMS

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Accelerated heavy particles are candidates for use in cancer therapy. The primary purpose of this investigation was to study the dose-effect relationships for asynchronous human kidney T-1 cells at various values of residual range for monoenergetic beams of carbon 9400 MeV/amu), neon (425 MeV/amu), and argon (570 MeV/amu. The 'track segment' method of exposure was used to minimize variations in the distribution of energy transfer events; secondary fragments produced by the particles in their passage through matter were, however, unavoidably included.
