ICRP PUBLICATION 118: ICRP Statement on Tissue Reactions and Early and Late Effects of Radiation in Normal Tissues and Organs — Threshold Doses for Tissue Reactions in a Radiation Protection Context
This report provides a review of early and late effects of radiation in normal tissues and organs with respect to radiation protection. It was instigated following a recommendation in Publication 103Expand

Dose-fractionation sensitivity of prostate cancer deduced from radiotherapy outcomes of 5,969 patients in seven international institutional datasets: α/β = 1.4 (0.9-2.2) Gy.
PURPOSE There are reports of a high sensitivity of prostate cancer to radiotherapy dose fractionation, and this has prompted several trials of hypofractionation schedules. It remains unclear whetherExpand

A modelled comparison of the effects of using different ways to compensate for missed treatment days in radiotherapy.
There is much evidence for the detrimental effect on tumour control of missed treatment days during radiotherapy, amounting for example to approximately a 1.6% absolute decrease in local controlExpand

Human exposure to high natural background radiation: what can it teach us about radiation risks?
Natural radiation is the major source of human exposure to ionising radiation, and its largest contributing component to effective dose arises from inhalation of (222)Rn and its radioactive progeny.Expand

The delay before onset of accelerated tumour cell repopulation during radiotherapy: a direct maximum-likelihood analysis of a collection of worldwide tumour-control data.
The worldwide collection of control data for head and neck tumours presented by Withers et al. (Withers, H.R., Taylor, J.M.G. and Maciejewski, B. Acta Oncol. 27: 131-146, 1988) was reanalysed using aExpand

Germ Cell and Dose-Dependent DNA Damage Measured by the Comet Assay in Murine Spermatozoaa after Testicular X-Irradiation1
Abstract The single-cell gel electrophoresis (Comet) assay has been widely used to measure DNA damage in human sperm in a variety of physiological and pathological conditions. We investigated theExpand

Ovarian failure following abdominal irradiation in childhood: the radiosensitivity of the human oocyte.
Ovarian function has been studied sequentially since 1975 in 19 patients treated in childhood for an intra-abdominal tumour with surgery and whole abdominal radiotherapy (total dose 30 Gy). ElevenExpand
