Radiosensitivity of atomic bomb survivors as determined with a micronucleus assay.

Abstract

If A-bomb survivors include a disproportionately large number of either radioresistant or radiosensitive persons, the surviving population would provide a biased estimate of the true risk of radiogenic cancer. To test this hypothesis, the in vitro X-ray sensitivities of peripheral blood lymphocytes obtained from 937 A-bomb survivors were measured with a… (More)
