It may be that radiation-induced genomic instability specifically activates the NF[kappa]B/HER2 pathway to increase cell survival or that it selects for radioresistant
stem/progenitors with a high level of background NF[kappa]B/HER2 activity, encouraging repopulation with radioresistant

Because a woman's gametes are arrested for long periods of time at various points in their life cycle (in stark contrast to the male system in which replication is continuous), a woman's gametes are largely radioresistant
for much of their life.
Although this type of tumor is generally considered radioresistant
, radiation therapy is often prescribed after surgical resection.
Genome Sequence of the Radioresistant
Bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans R1.
Saenger's irradiated cancer patients had radioresistant
tumors, allowing researchers to be sure that the symptoms they suffered were caused by the radiation only, not complicated by the effects of the tumor destruction.
Generally speaking, cells are significantly more radioresistant
in the late S phase,|19,20~ but also are extremely sensitive to thermal cytotoxic treatment.
2-Methoxyestradiol, an endogenous estrogen metabolite, sensitizes radioresistant
MCF-7/FIR breast cancer cells through multiple mechanisms.
13 The stem spermatogonia are relatively radioresistant
and they immediately repopulate the seminiferous epithelium in mice.
The only treatment for schwannoma is wide local excision through an approach allowing adequate exposure as schwannoma are generally radioresistant
