Any departure from CLDR will yield an increased biological effect, which is greater for tissues with smaller /spl alpha///spl beta/ ratios and shorter T/sub 1/2/ of repair. The Relative Effectiveness (RE=1+g.d/(/spl beta///spl alpha/)) for late responding tissues will increase more than the RE for early responding tissues including tumors. This could obviously lead to a reduced therapeutic ratio. Fortunately the ...
