Basic research on the molecular effects of fractionated radiotherapy has yielded a wide range of clinical research, including clinical trials, in the last three decades. The experts in this field undertook huge efforts with regard to laboratory experimentation and clinical studies to understand the real meaning of fractionation and its effects in clinical practice. These processes are ongoing and characterized by significant scientific intensity. On the other hand, experimental research has been rudimentary, with a focus on the radiation effects of single-dose high-precision radiotherapy; in other words, all work has attempted to reveal the biologic essence of so-called radiosurgery.
