Two- and three-dimensional models for risk assessment of radiation-enhanced colorectal tumorigenesis.

Abstract

Astronauts may be at an increased risk for developing colorectal cancer after a prolonged interplanetary mission given the potential for greater carcinogenic effects of radiation to the colon. In addition, with an increase in age, there is a greater incidence of premalignant colon adenomas with age. In the present study, we have compared the effects of… (More)
