The need for the protocol conversion has been recognized with the proliferation of heterogeneous networks. From a formal viewpoint, we regard that problem as generating a protocol which satisfies the properties of the conversion. In this paper, we prove that, one can determine whether a converter exists, for some protocol classes, given protocols in the(More)
Understanding the biological effects of neutron mixed-beam irradiation used for boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) is important in order to improve the efficacy of the therapy and to reduce side effects. In the present study, cell viability and DNA double-strand breaks (DNA-DSBs) were examined in Chinese hamster ovary cells (CHO-K1) and their(More)
BACKGROUND It is generally said that low LET radiation produce high dose-rate effect, on the other hand, no significant dose rate effect is observed in high LET radiation. Although high LET radiations are produced in BNCT, little is known about dose-rate effect of BNCT. MATERIALS AND METHODS T98G cells, which were tumor cells, were irradiated by neutron(More)
