    We explore the potential for the biologically based two-stage clonal expansion model to make statements about the influence of genetic factors on the steps in the model. We find evidence that the different susceptibility of BALB/C and CBA/Ca mice to bone cancer after Thorium injection may be...

    The role of genetic factors in the development of chronic radiation disease (CRD), mostly caused by occupational external ?-exposure, was evaluated. The data of molecular genetic survey of a cohort of 985 workers at the nuclear power plant, the Mayak PA, were analyzed. Among the genetic markers...

  • Risk Estimation for Badge-monitored Radiation Workers. Stewart, Alice // Environmental Health Perspectives Supplements;Dec97 Supplement 6, Vol. 105, p1603 

    In estimating the cancer mortality risk for radiation workers it is conventional to use data obtained from the populations exposed to radiation as a result of the atomic bomb blast in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This A-bomb experience resulted in relatively high doses of radiation and short periods...

    Insofar as international conferences reflect the state of development of the subject under discussion, they provide an opportunity to question, at a rather fundamental level, the direction of and progress in the subject. With regard to the effects of radiation on health, many of the problems...

    Computed tomography (CT) examinations involve relatively high doses to patients. The objectives of this study were to optimise the radiation dose for patient during CT chest scan and to estimate the lifetime cancer risk. A total of 50 patients were studied: control group (A) (38 patients) and...

    Stem cells are fundamental to the development of any tissue or organism via their ability to self-renew, which is aided by their unlimited proliferative capacity and their ability to produce fully differentiated offspring, often from multiple lineages. Stems cells are long lived and have the...
