Human blood was irradiated with accelerated ions: 20 MeV 4He, 425 MeV 12C and 1480 MeV and 996 MeV 16O. For each ion, the blood was exposed to a range of doses as thin specimens in the track segment mode, so that irradiations took place at nearly constant LETs of 31.4, 61, 52 and 69 keV microm(-1), respectively. Lymphocytes were cultured to the first in… CONTINUE READING
