- In a later paper, " Theory of Dual Radiation Action, " written with Dr . Albrecht M . Kellerer, Rossi advanced the understanding of the biological impact of different types of densely ionizing radiation, particularly neutrons.
- Antioxidants should provide reduced or no protection against the initial damage from densely ionizing radiation such as HZE nuclei, because the direct effect is more important than the free-radical-mediated indirect radiation damage at high LET . However, there is an expectation that some benefits should occur for persistent oxidative damage that is related to inflammation and immune responses.
