Survival and yields of chromosome aberrations in hamster and human lung cells irradiated by alpha particles.

Abstract

The effects of alpha-particle irradiation on hamster and human lung cells have been studied. In both cases two end points were taken, cell death and the induction of chromosome aberrations. The hamster cells were common stock V79 cells; the human ones were freshly derived from fetal material. For both types of cells, the survival curves could be described… (More)
