Section I trials are a severe first step within the examine of novel melanoma healing techniques. Their fundamental ambitions are to spot the prompt dose, time table and pharmacologic habit of recent brokers or new combos of brokers and to explain the adversarial results of therapy. In melanoma therapeutics, such experiences have specific demanding situations.

Argon Neon Carbon Neutrons Figure 1-17 Relative biologic effectiveness (RBE) is demonstrated on the left y-axis as a function of linear energy transfer (LET) for a number of biologic endpoints, including production of chromosomal aberrations, cell kill, and tissue reactions. The RBE rises to a maximum corresponding to an LET of approximately 100 KeV/µm and then decreases as the LET continues to rise. Shown below the x axis are the ranges of LET for photons plus several different types of particulate radiations that have been used clinically.
For a given level of cell kill (or other approximately isoeffective endpoint), the more highly fractionated the treatment, the higher the RBE. 104 For many decades thereafter, radia tion oncologists and biologists continued to suspect that the presence or absence of oxygen was capable of modifying radiosensitivity. In 1955, however, Thomlinson and Gray105 brought this concept to the forefront of radiobiology and formed the basis of the third major approach to the problem of the differential response of cells to radiotherapy, namely, that a change in the proportion of hypoxic cells in a tissue could alter its radioresponsiveness.
In addition, the inhibi tor technique has two other advantages, namely that some degree of synchronization is possible in vivo90 as well as in vitro and that by inducing synchrony at the end of G1 phase, a higher degree of synchrony can be maintained for longer periods than if synchronization had been at the beginning of G1. On the other hand, the mitotic selection method does not rely on the use of agents that could perturb the normal cell cycle kinetics of the population under study. 91 These have largely replaced the aforementioned longer and more labor intensive cell cycle synchronization methods.
