Abstract: Considering biological cells as single target two-hit detectors, an analytie formula to calculate the response of cells to ions is developed based an track structure theory. In the calenlation, the splitting deposition energy between ion kill mode and γ kill mode is not used. The results of calculation are in agreement with the experimental data for response of Chinese hamster cells, whose response to γ rays can be described by the response function of single target two hit detector to ions.

Key words: Chinese hamster cells, Track theory, Ions, Dose response
