To achieve this, chromo-somal aberrations in peripheral blood lymphocytes were exposed in vitro todi erent doses of X-rays and C-ions with di erent energies; furthermore, lym-phocytes were obtained from prostate-cancer patients before, during and afterradiotherapy and analyzed using the multiplex uorescence in situ hybridiza-tion (mFISH) technique. These cancer patients were either treated with C-ionboost irradiation in the course of a conventional photon intensity-modulatedradiotherapy (IMRT) or solely with IMRT. Blood samples were taken fromeach patient before, during, at the end of and one year after the therapy.
