Abstract

An in vitro dose effect curve of dicentric chromosome aberrations in human cord blood lymphocytes has been obtained for 250-kV X-rays. This is compared with a curve prepared in an identical manner using blood from adults. The comparison shows a marginally higher dicentric yield in blood of newborns at doses above about 250 rads.
