Tissue repair capacity and repair kinetics deduced from multifractionated or continuous irradiation regimens with incomplete repair.

Abstract

A model is proposed to account for cell survival after multiple doses, when the interfraction interval is insufficient for complete Elkind repair. In the limit of ever-increasing numbers of ever-smaller fractional doses, the model transforms into the accumulation model (Roesch, 1978) of survival after continuous irradiation. When it is adapted to describe… (More)
