Survival curve theory originated in a consideration of the physics of energy deposi tion in matter by ionizing radiation. ”55 With an increasing number of shouldered survival and dose-response curves being described for cells irradiated both in vitro and in vivo, various equations were developed to fit these data. 28 It was thought that exponential survival curves resulted from the single-hit, “all-or-nothing” inactivation of a single target, resulting in the loss of activity. A mathematical expres sion used to fit this type of dose-response relationship was S = e − D/D0 .
This concept is illustrated in Figure 1-10. 4. Cells are able to undergo repeated cycles of damage and recovery without an apparent change in recovery capacity. As such, one would predict an equal effect per dose fraction during the course of fractionated radio therapy. In a more practical sense, this means that a multifraction survival curve can be generated using the formula SFn = (SF1)n, where SF1 is the surviving fraction of cells after one dose fraction (determined from a single-dose survival curve or comparable assay) and SFn is the surviving fraction of cells after n dose frac tions.
Age Response Through the Cell Cycle Results of an age response experiment of Terasima and Tolmach,87 using synchronized HeLa cells, are shown in the lower panel of Figure 1-14. Following a single dose of 5 Gy of x rays, cells were noted to be most radioresistant in late S phase. Cells in G1 were resistant at the beginning of the phase but became sensitive toward the end of the phase, and G2 cells CHAPTER were increasingly sensitive as they moved toward the highly sensitive M phase. In subsequent experiments by Sinclair,92,93 age response curves for synchronized Chinese hamster V79 cells showed that the peak in resistance observed in G1 HeLa cells was largely absent for V79 cells.
