Early Cell Survival Investigations

    Early investigations into cell survival found that there were different responses among:

    • Species
    • Within a species
    • Between sexes in a species
    • Between different types of tissues within a species.
    It was also found that the same type of tissue varies in response to what part of the cell reproductive cycle it is in:

    • Mitotic cells are more radiosensitive.
    • Cells in prophase are more radiosensitive than others.
