Somatic effects of low neutron doses
A complete observation of life span and late pathology has been carried out through large scale experiments on mice irradiated with graded doses of neutrons. Survival and tumour incidence data were analysed. In the dose region where tumours are significantly induced, an example of sex-linked radiosensitivity was found, female BC3F(1) being approximately twice as inducible as males. Neutron effectiveness was not evident at doses below 4 cGy for females and 10 cGy for males.
