IN a previous communication (Cohen and Cohen, 1954b) it was noted that tumours arising from viable grafts of the C3H mammary carcinoma, which had been attenuated by sublethal doses of radiation immediately before implantation, were found, when subsequently irradiated in situ, to have a significantly increased radiosensitivity. The radiosensitization did not appear to be due to any permanent change in the tumour, or to any local reaction in the tumour bed, but could be explained only on the… CONTINUE READING
