Many studies are focusing on the biological effects of gamma irradiation at low dose-rates. Studies have shown that chronic exposure to gamma irradiation at low dose-rates shortened the lifespan of mice due to neoplasm formation. The aim of this study was to clarify the physiological effects of long-term exposure to gamma irradiation at low dose-rates in mice, measured with noninvasive parameters such as blood pressure.

Gamma irradiation ( Co) in postharvest of common beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), has already proven beneficial, regarding the prolongation of shelf life and physical, chemical, and organoleptic aspects...
Astragalus polysaccharides (APS) were treated with different gamma irradiation doses (10, 25, 50, 100 and 150 kGy) to investigate the effects of gamma radiation processing on structure, physicochemi...
Radon (Rn) measurements were conducted in the Pileki Cave with Radim 3A Active Radon Monitor equipment. Measurements were also done with the passive sampling method with CR-39 nuclear track detectors ...
Living species are chronically exposed to environmental ionizing radiations from sources that can be overexpressed by nuclear accidents. In invertebrates, reproduction is the most radiosensitive studi...
This paper presents a calibration curve for Prematurely Condensed Chromosome Rings (PCC-ring) which are scarce in cytogenetic dosimetry; here we analyzed the behavior of the PCC-ring frequency and PCC...
To study the effects of 1200mg gamma tocopherol (yT), a form of vitamin E, given daily on the response of the airway in mild asthmatics after exposure to ozone (O3)
This study is designed to provide information on patients' immune response after exposure to transfused blood. Blood transfusions may have opposite immune effects on patients. One is sen...
Background: During the first half of the 20th century, scalp irradiation was a standard treatment for induction of epilation in children suffering from Tinea Capitis. These children are no...
In a recent double-blinded, placebo-controlled multi-center international study, subcutaneous injections of interferon-gamma administered three times weekly reduced the frequency of seriou...
Background: - Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is an immunodeficiency disease in which white blood cells are unable to kill certain bacteria and fungi. People with CGD are more likely ...
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)
The assay of INTERFERON-GAMMA released from lymphocytes after their exposure to a specific test antigen, to check for IMMUNOLOGIC MEMORY resulting from a previous exposure to the antigen. The amount of interferon-gamma released is usually assayed by an ENZYME-LINKED IMMUNOSORBENT ASSAY.
A suspension of radioactive gold particles emitting negative beta particles and gamma irradiation. It was formerly used for liver scans and irradiation treatment of some metastatic malignancies.
Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
