Published data on the inherent radiosensitivity of human tumour cells has been analysed in order to reexamine the relationship between the initial slope of the cell survival curve and clinical radioresponsiveness. A clear positive correlation between these parameters is demonstrated. The surviving fraction at 2 Gy is shown to give good discrimination between resistant and sensitive tumour types.
