Abstract : The book analyzes data from the literature and the authors' original data on the relative biological effectiveness of various irradiation types. Certain regular relationships are established. RBE (Relative Biological Effectiveness) coefficients for various irradiations have been established for various animal species and biological groups. Clinical symptons of radiation sickness caused by various rays have been studied and systematized. Similarly, the authors have systematized data obtained from investigations of the irradiation time factor, methodological approaches to the study of the dose strength, fractionization, and the total time of irradiation. Conclusions are drawn from data concerning the effects of the dose strength on model systems and various live organisms, as well as established patterns in the effect of various ranges of dose strength in various kinds of radiation sickness. A similar analysis made it possible to evaluate and present information on the mechanism through which various irradiation doses affect biological reactions. (Author)
