abstract

  • The authors have demonstrated that even minor alterations in fractionation of radiation dose can result in significant effects on the potential of mesenchymal stem cells to differentiate. These findings imply that at least some of the variability in tissue damage after radiation therapy observed clinically may be attributable to differences in the delivery of ionizing radiation.
