The induction of dicentric chromosomes in human lymphocytes from one individual irradiated in vitro with monoenergetic neutrons at 565 keV was examined to provide additional data for an improved evaluation of neutrons with respect to radiation risk in radioprotection. The resulting linear dose-response relationship obtained (0.813 +/- 0.052 dicentrics per cell per gray) over the dose range of 0.0213-0.167 Gy is consistent with published results obtained for irradiation with neutrons from… CONTINUE READING
