In this work, we demonstrate the irradiation effect of laser accelerated protons induced on human lung cancer cells. In-vitro A549 cells are irradiated with a proton dose of 20 Gy, resulting in a distinct formation of $$gamma$$-H2AX foci as an indicator of DNA double-strand breaks. This is the first result showing that laser-driven ion beams can generate a lethal effect on cancer cells.
