The debate concerning the linear or threshold response of somatic radiation injury has recently been focused on the human radium toxicity studies. Because of the critical public health significance of the data derived from these studies, a task group from the Division of Biological Effects of the Bureau of Radiological Health undertook a review of the available human and animal radium studies for the purpose of determining the extent to which animal and human data are sufficient to resolve the questions of a dose-response relationship. The review contained in this report indicates that the animal and human radium experience to date is not sufficient to specify an unequivocal dose-response model. Therefore, in the low dose regions expected to be experienced by the general public, the assumption of a linear, non-threshold model continues to be a prudent health philosophy for standards setting.
