Developmental capacities of Artemia eggs have been studied after exposure to 645 MeV or 9.2 GeV protons. Effects of proton irradiation were studied in comparison with 60Co gamma ray irradiation, endpoints being emergence, hatching and 4-5 day old live nauplii percentages. Effectiveness of 645 MeV protons is greater than that of 9.2 GeV protons. R.b.e. values calculated for nauplius survival is 2.3 for 645 MeV protons and 1.5 for 9.2 GeV protons. These results can be taken into account in… CONTINUE READING
