Biophysical modelling of the effects of inhaled radon progeny on the bronchial epithelium for the estimation of the relationships applied in the two-stage clonal expansion model of carcinogenesis.

Abstract

There is a considerable debate between research groups applying the two-stage clonal expansion model for lung cancer risk estimation, whether radon exposure affects initiation and transformation or promotion. The aim of the present study is to quantify the effects of radon progeny on these stages with biophysical models. For this purpose, numerical models… (More)
