AbstractThis article reviews the available literature on intrinsic radiosensitivity as a predictor of patient response to radiotherapy. Results have been summarised for tumour, fibroblast and lymphocyte radiosensitivity where results have been correlated with clinical data. Suggestions are made for the possible way forward in this area of radiobiology.
