PURPOSE Low-dose radiotherapy (LD-RT) with single fractions between 0.1 and 1.0 Gy is known to exert an antiinflammatory effect. Although different mechanisms for the clinical efficiency were proposed, only few experimental data are still available. This paper focuses on functional and molecular aspects of LD-RT. METHODS AND RESULTS The antiinflammatory efficiency of LD-RT in clinical studies could be confirmed in experimental models of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. In a model of… CONTINUE READING
