Briggs, Adam Robert, Cerium oxide nanoparticles exhibit an energy-dependent protection to in-vitro cell cultures under X-ray radiation exposure, Master of Science - Research thesis, Faculty of Engineering, University of Wollongong, 2013. http://ro.uow.edu.au/theses/4228
The research outcomes reported throughout this thesis provides a novel contribution to the development of CeO2 NPs as a radioprotection adjuvant to radiotherapy. The development of an in-vitro model enabled investigations of the biocompatibility of nanoceria and its subsequent efficacy to provide radiation protection to cells exposed with X-ray radiation sources.
