Misonidazole in fractionated radiotherapy: are many small fractions best?


Computer simulations have been made of four radiotherapy fractionation regimes either in current use or proposed for clinical trials of misonidazole. A variety of cell-survival parameters and reoxygenation patterns have been used. The models allow the relative importance of repair capacity, reoxygenation rate, and dose per fraction to be assessed for these… (More)
