    A low-dose protective apoptosis-mediated (PAM) process is discussed that appears to be turned on by low-dose gamma and X rays but not by low-dose alpha radiation. PAM is a bystander effect that involves cross-talk between genomically compromised [e.g., mutants, neoplastically transformed,...

    Dose-response curves for various low-LET radiation sources have consistently been demonstrated to be J-shaped for the cancer-relevant endpoint of neoplastic transformation in vitro. Most of these studies have been performed where the radiation has been delivered at intermediate to high...

    Environmental enrichment, i.e., increased intellectual, social, and physical activity makes brain more resilient to subsequent neurological disease. The mechanisms for this effect remain incompletely defined, but evidence shows tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) is involved. TNF-α, at...

    This article introduces a special issue of Biogerontology, for which a number of international experts who are still active or have been active in research on the effects of dietary restriction (DR) were asked to answer the following question. Do you think that DR can increase longevity in all...
