Low-dose X-ray irradiation promotes fracture healing through up-regulation of vascular endothelial growth factor.


Compared with high and medium dose irradiation, low-dose irradiation (LDI) revealed different yet healing promotion effects, such as hormesis and adaptive response. A recent milestone work by Zhou demonstrated that LDI at 1 Gy promoted callus formation and mineralization in a rat model, yet without being able to address the underlying mechanism. It is well… (More)
