Hi Nils,


If I recall correctly you can find some of the recentl contexts in books like "Basic Clinical Radiobiology" (G. Steel, ed.).


There is probably also a historical context that relates to the era before the threshold idea for stochastic effects was questioned (I would put this at before 1950 - much inspired by the findings by H. Muller in 1927). I have some old references from the period 1898-1947 which I don't have available at this time of writing but may come back to the topic if I find anything relevant. Perhaps you should search for papers by L.S. Taylor in the late 1940:ies and search for indirect references there.


Lets hope that other Radsafers will make more comments to your question.

> Dear colleagues,
> I am writing a review article regarding tolerance doses and biological effects from radiation (with concepts as TD, MTD, MTA, NTCP, BED etc), but i have some problems in finding the right articles. My thought was to try to collect and relate the tolerance doses from different radiation methods, i.e. external and different radioisotopes used for internal therapy. I have done the usual searches but it seems to me that I either gets alot of hits or very few. 
> Mainly, the organs of interest is kidney, liver and bone marrow. If you have any information or know where i can find the information needed, help would be much appreciated. Data from humans, mice or rats is favorable but if you have any data that you think might help me, please contact me.
