A cell kinetic model to explain the time of appearance of skin reaction after X-rays or ultraviolet light irradiation.
AbstractSkin reactions to various doses of X-rays (300 and 10 kV) and ultraviolet light (u.v.) have been compared using hairless mice. Two regions of epidermis with widely differing cell kinetics and gross structure have been compared. Little evidence could be found to support the idea that the early phases of the reaction are dependent on cell cycle time. The data can be explained by a model based on the assumption that epidermis contains only a small fraction of clonogenic (stem) cells and this fraction may vary in different epidermal regions. X-rays appear to exert their greatest destructive action on these clonogenic cells while u.v. is more indiscriminate in its action, killing both clonogenic and non-clonogenic cells.
