The inherent sensitivity of 20 human cell lines to the 62.5 MeV(p----Be+) clinical neutron beam at Clatterbridge, UK, has been assessed and compared to their sensitivity to 4 MeV photons. The survival curves of the cell lines following neutron irradiation were curvilinear, and the inherent neutron sensitivity varied by 4.5 fold (0.1 survival level) between the extreme values, in the cell lines studied. There was a strong correlation between the sensitivity of these human cells to photon and… CONTINUE READING
