Advances in Radiation Biology, Volume 8, provides an overview of the state of knowledge in the field of radiation biology. The book contains nine chapters and opens with a study on aspects of oxygen enhancement ratio and relative biological effectiveness that are relevant to neutron therapy. This is followed by separate chapters on the clinical application of negative pi mesons; the clinical features and cellular and biochemical defects in human diseases, with an emphasis on defects in DNA metabolism, particularly DNA repair; recombination in eukaryotes; and the principal mechanisms of DNA damage and repair in higher plants. Subsequent chapters deal with the effect of oxygen on the repair of radiation damage by cells and tissues; the effects of ionizing radiation on mammalian cells; heritable lesions affecting populations of irradiated mammalian cells; and environmental impact of tritium.
