  • Ionising Radiation

    Introduction The energy level of some types of radiation is high enough so that when they interact with matter they cause the formation of electrically charged particles or ion-pairs and break molecular bonds. These so-called ionising radiations are by their nature potentially harmful to life; at high doses they can be lethal and at lower doses can cause genetic damage. Ionising radiation occurs ...

  • Non-Ionising Radiation

    Pressures on the environment may occur through chemical, physical and biological agents. The subject of this study is physical agents, where physical fields are examined. Physical fields are part of the natural environment. Depending upon their properties and the surrounding conditions, physical fields are transmitted through the spaces in which we live, potentially affecting human health and ...

  • Health monitoring of persons occupationally exposed to ionising radiation in Bulgaria

    This paper describes changes in Bulgarian legislation concerning the health monitoring of occupationally exposed individuals to ensure the radiation safety and protection of radiation workers. The expert view on the implementation of health monitoring programmes to different occupational groups and assessment of health risk, including molecular-epidemiological analyses, is given. Special ...

  • Effect of 137Cs gamma radiation on the system bioindicator Tradescantia pallida

    The use of the bioindicator Tradescantia clone 4430 as a biomonitor is limited to a short period of time in regions of hot climate. This paper describes the use of Tradescantia pallida as a bioindicator, to verify its sensitivity to gamma radiation from a 137Cs source and to monitor places of low doses of ionising radiation in tropical climates. Specimens of the T. pallida were exposed to ...

  • Transcriptional expression of H2B, CTP synthase and PLK3 genes in whole blood exposed to 60Co gamma radiation

    Ionising radiation induces complex molecular responses in human cells resulting in changes at mRNA and protein expression. Limited data is available on the transcriptional status of functional genes in response to ionising radiation using peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). In the present study, transcriptional profiles of Histone 2B, CTP synthase and PLK3 were studied. Blood samples were ...

  • Health monitoring of NPP workers

    The aim of the study is to assess the health status of Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant personnel in association with their occupational exposure to low doses of ionising radiation (IR) as well as with other factors of their working environment and to determine the probability of the occupational exposure to be a reason for the diagnosed malignant diseases (Probability of Causation – PC). More than ...

  • Social-demographic profile and dose evaluation of the radiopharmaceutical facility workers

    The main aims of this work are to identify the social-demographic profile of the workers based on stratification variables such as gender, age, and tasks performed by the workers, and to evaluate the annual collective doses of workers with potential risk of ionising radiation exposure at the workplace during the years 2004?2008. In this context, the knowledge of the workforce composition in the ...

  • The search for a possible optimum adapting dose under the optimum irradiation time scheme in cultured human lymphocytes

    One of the most important questions in adaptive response studies is still the possible existence of an optimum adapting dose. In this study, using the optimum irradiation time scheme (24–48) that was reported by other investigators, we monitored the cytogenetic endpoint of chromosome aberrations to assess the magnitude of adaptation to ionising radiation in the cultured human lymphocytes. ...

  • From 370km above the earth to 11000m under the sea

    It’s a bold strapline – but what does it mean? Have we opened an atmosphere research facility in outer space? Organised an aquatic Charity Day in the Mariana Trench? Well, if you didn’t know anything about Analox you’d be forgiven for wondering. After all, three-hundred and seventy kilometres above the earth is a long way from Stokesley. And eleven thousand metres under ...
