Abstract

There is apaucity of data concerning irradiation effects on the extracellular matrix and on organised tissues. Examples of such research are cited as are some of the limiting factors towards obtaining meaningful results. This would engender a range of research towards further improving the quality of life, most pointedly of those receiving radiotherapy. As cancer survivor rates increase, survivors are more likely to experience side effects of radiotherapy. This study examines the effects of radiotherapy doses on the extracellular matrix as hyaluronic acid (HA) and pericardium.
