The impact of dose rate on the linear no threshold hypothesis.

The goal of this manuscript is to define the role of dose rate and dose protraction on the induction of biological changes at all levels of biological organization. Both total dose and the time frame ...

Radiation protection biology then and now.

Radiation biology is a branch of the radiation research field which focuses on studying radiation effects in cells and organisms. Radiation can be used in biological investigations for two, mutually n...

Uses of Effective Dose: The Good, the Bad, and the Future.

Effective dose (E) is a risk-adjusted dosimetric quantity developed by the International Commission on Radiological Protection. It is a key metric for practical management of the risk of stochastic he...

Low-Dose Radiobiology Program at Canadian Nuclear Laboratories: Past, Present and Future.

Health risks associated with the exposure of humans to low-dose ionizing radiation are currently estimated using the Linear-No-Threshold model. Over the last few decades, however, this model has been ...

Reduced-dose Radiation Therapy to the Primary Site is Effective for High-risk Neuroblastoma: Results from a Prospective Trial.

For patients with high-risk neuroblastoma (HR-NB), a dose of 21 Gy to the primary tumor site after gross total resection (GTR) provides excellent local control. However, no clinical trial has specific...

Clinical Trials [21625 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Dose-Escalated Proton Radiation Therapy for High-Risk Prostate Cancer

The purpose of this research study is to determine if dose-escalated proton radiation therapy is a good way to treat high-risk prostate cancer. The study features hypofractionation and a s...

International PRospective Multicenter Study On RadiaTion Dose Estimates Of Coronary CT AngIOgraphy IN Daily Practice

Estimation of radiation dose of coronary multislice computed tomography (MSCT) angiography in daily practice in an international, multicenter and vendor-independent trial.

Biologically-based Target Volumes to Treat Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma

This clinical trial increases radiation to areas of the brain considered to be at risk for cancer. The at-risk areas are identified by a biological MRI scan. The study will look at side ef...

Study on the Biological Prediction Models of Radiation Pneumonitis

Radiation pneumonitis is the most common complication and the major dose-limiting toxicity associated with radiotherapy, which can cause poor quality of life or life-threatening symptoms a...

Prospective Study of Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for Thymoma Inoma: Therapeutic Effect and Toxicity Assessment

For patients with unresectable or recurrent disease, radiation is routinely administered, often in combination with systemic chemotherapy. However, because of wide range of radiation, more...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

The amount of radiation energy that is deposited in a unit mass of material, such as tissues of plants or animal. In RADIOTHERAPY, radiation dosage is expressed in gray units (Gy). In RADIOLOGIC HEALTH, the dosage is expressed by the product of absorbed dose (Gy) and quality factor (a function of linear energy transfer), and is called radiation dose equivalent in sievert units (Sv).

The relationship between the dose of administered radiation and the response of the organism or tissue to the radiation.

Mice selectively bred for hypersusceptibility to two-stage chemical skin carcinogenesis. They are also hypersusceptible to UV radiation tumorigenesis with single high-dose, but not chronic low-dose, exposures. SENCAR (SENsitive to CARcinogenesis) mice are used in research as an animal model for tumor production.
