Scientific theory as novel title?

I am writing a science thriller that takes off from work done by a number of living scientists on a theory originally articulated as "the X hypothesis" (not X, but don't want to get in trouble here). I will of course acknowledge the work and whose it is in an introduction, but can I title the novel "The X hypothesis"? It's been widely written about and the name has been incorporated in the titles of many symposia, etc., as well as books about it.  
What kind of trouble might I run into?
