Cell Proliferation Kinetics and Radiation Therapy

  • J. Denekamp
  • J. F. Fowler
Part of the Cancer book series (C, volume 6)


Radiation can perturb the cell proliferation kinetics of a population, and the cell kinetics can itself influence the response of the cell population to any further dose of radiation. These mutual interactions are of importance in the response of tumors and normal tissues to fractionated irradiation.
