    Background: Radiation-induced bone sarcoma has been associated with high doses of ionizing radiation from therapeutic or occupation-related exposures. However, the development of bone sarcoma following exposure to lower doses of ionizing radiation remains speculative. Methods: A cohort analysis...

    Irradiation-induced sarcomas are a late sequelae of irradiation therapy. Most sarcomas have been reported to occur after exposure to a radiation dose of 55 Gys and above, with a dose ranging from 16 Gys to 112 Gys. These tumours are very aggressive and an early detection is needed for a timely...

    Ionizing radiation (IR) and germline mutations in the retinoblastoma tumor suppressor gene (RB1) are the strongest risk factors for developing osteosarcoma. Recapitulating the human predisposition, we found that Rb1+/- mice exhibited accelerated development of IR-induced osteosarcoma, with a...
