The r.b.e. of different energy neutrons as measured by the heamatopoietic spleen-colony technique.

Abstract

The spleen-colony technique has been used for determining the relative biological effectiveness (r.b.e.) for several energies of neutron radiation. Donor mice were exposed for fission and accelerator-generated neutrons at a variety of doses and energies. Immediately after exposure, donor bone-marrow was removed from the hind legs, and standard amounts were… (More)
