Low-dose ionizing radiation: induction of differential intracellular signalling possibly affecting intercellular communication.

Abstract

Given the complexity of the carcinogenic process and the lack of any mechanistic understanding of how ionizing radiation at low-level exposures affects the multistage, multimechanism processes of carcinogenesis, it is imperative that concepts and paradigms be reexamined when extrapolating from high dose to low dose. Any health effect directly linked to low… (More)
