Fast neutron relative biological effects and implications for charged particle therapy.

Abstract:

In two fast neutron data sets, comprising in vitro and in vivo experiments, an inverse relationship is found between the low-linear energy transfer (LET) α/β ratio and the maximum value of relative biological effect (RBE(max)), while the minimum relative biological effect (RBE(min)) is linearly related to the square root of the low-LET α/β ratio. RBE(max) is the RBE at near zero dose and can be represented by the ratio of the α parameters at high- and low-LET radiation exposures. RBE(min) is ...
