biology, transformation, and carcinogenesis, as well as some useful data from studies of neutron-radiation biology, the committee recommends that a Phase II Research Council committee

  • Evaluate biophysical models of the inverse dose-rate effect and their implications for risks associated with indoor radon exposure.

  • Compare risks and pathology of lung tumors induced by exposure to radon with risks and pathology of those induced by external exposures to low-LET radiation.

  • Examine in more detail the induction and repair of molecular changes resulting from -particle exposure.
