Abstract : The monograph gives an account of the results of physical and biological experiments carried out with high-energy protons on the synchrocyclotron at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research. The features of the radiation effect in space flight conditions and means of developing permissible radiation levels are considered. Materials on dosimetry and protection from proton radiation are presented. The results of experiments on the biological action of high-energy protons are stated. The coefficients of their relative biological efficiency are given. The results of research in the prevention and treatment of radiation injuries caused by the action of high-energy protons are presented. (Author)
