Die Borna'sche Krankheit ist schon lange bei Tieren, v. a. bei Pferden und Schafen, als eine sporadisch auftretende, progressiv verlaufende Encephalomyelitis bekannt und galt ausschließlich als tierpathogen. In Studien konnten Wissenschaftler BD-virusspezifische Antikörper auch in Liquores von Menschen mit psychiatrisch relevantem Krankheitsbild nachweisen, die die Erkenntnis brachten, daß der Mensch mit dem BD-Virus infizierbar ist.

The dose rate at the rotation axis for a SAD of 100 cm and a source activity of about 550 GBq (approx. 5 Gy/min in the depth of the dose maximum in water. The dose delivered to a specific point is calculated by multiplying the dose rate with the treatment time. That means the treatment time for a single field is less than 1 min for a dose of 2 Gy near the surface. Due to the 63 months half-life of the 60Co isotope, the sources have to be replaced after several years.
In the early days of radiotherapy, the only available radiation sources were X-ray tubes and naturally occurring radionuclides extracted from ores. 1 Radionuclides For a long time the most important radionuclide was 226Ra, a nuclide occurring in the 238U decay chain and discovered by Marie and Pierre Curie by the end of the nineteenth century. 226Ra and its daughter nuclides emit α- and β-particles as well as γ-radiation. The α-particles have a very limited range of only some 10 μm and are completely stopped in the walls of the capsules in which the radium is applied.
B. ch 37 Introduction It is accepted that radiotherapy may be equally as effective as surgery in the management of epithelial skin cancers, whereas surgery is the more important modality for malignant melanoma which is generally accepted to be radioresistant. Radiobiology underlies the response (or lack of response) of a tumour to radiotherapy. The four key features that are considered to explain this response were itemised by Withers in 1975: repair, repopulation, reassortment and reoxygenation .
