The overrated role of 'promotion' in mechanistic modelling of radiation carcinogenesis.

Abstract

It is argued that the 'cellular' dose-response relationships of model parameters cannot be determined from mechanistic model fits to experimental or epidemiologic cancer data. Baseline population cancer incidence data show conclusions about intermediate cell kinetics to be especially questionable. Here we recommend that mechanistic models should be applied… (More)
