Telomeres and radiosensitivity of individuals
ID: FIGH-CT-2002-00217
Start date: 2003-01-01, End date: 2005-12-31
Risk estimate of radiation-induced cancer in human population is based on epidemiological data. Most extrapolations are limited by the lack of understanding of the mechanisms responsible for radiation carcinogenesis. The acquisition of knowledge on common genetic factors that ...

Telomeres and telomerase in radio-sensitivity and gene amplification
Telomeres and telomerase play key roles in the maintenance of genome stability. Chiara Mondello, in collaboration with Elena Giulotto, has shown that in telomerase expressing cells, very short telomeres do not increase cellular and chromosomal radiosensitivity, as they do in t...

Double strand break repair functions and gene amplification
It is known that DNA-PKcs is a key protein for the repair of DSBs through the NHEJ pathway and that DSBs can initiate gene amplification. The results obtained by Elena Giulotto and Chiara Mondello indicate that in human cells an impairment in DNA-PKcs function increases the pr...

General guidelines for the estimation of committed effective dose from incorporation monitoring data
ID: FIKR-CT-2001-00160
Start date: 2001-10-01, End date: 2005-03-31
Doses from intakes of radionuclides cannot be measured but must be assessed from monitoring data. Such assessments require application of a model and estimation of the exposure time, material properties, etc. The aim is to develop guidelines to standardise assessments of inter...

General guideline
[REPORT SUMMARY] General guideline
The consortium collated and analysed experience on the assessment of internal dose from incorporation monitoring data. A wide range of radionuclides was covered, with emphasis on the actinides (e.g. uranium, plutonium), fission products (e.g. caesium, strontium) and activation...

Study of lung cancer risk and residential radon exposure
ID: FIGH-CT-1999-00008
Start date: 2000-03-01, End date: 2005-02-28
Epidemiological studies of underground miners have shown that exposure to radon and radon progeny increases the risk of lung cancer. However, there are uncertainties in using these data to estimate the risk associated with radon exposure in dwellings. In contrast, information ...

Processes regulating remobilisation, bioavailability and translocation of radionuclides in marine sediments
ID: FIGE-CT-2000-00085
Start date: 2000-11-01, End date: 2003-10-31
The aim of the project is to study remobilisation of radiologically, important radionuclides from sediments of different characteristics in different European environments. Transboundary exposure has to be taken into account into the modelling and assessment of committed doses...

Evaluation of Individual Dosimetry in Mixed Neutron and Photon Radiation Fields
ID: FIKR-CT-2001-00175
Start date: 2001-11-01, End date: 2005-04-30
Radiation protection dosimetry in mixed neutron/photon fields - to which 60000 workers in the EU and Switzerland are monitored - is still far less established than that for photon radiation alone. This project will lead to the necessary improvement by evaluating the performanc...

Dosimetry of aircrew exposure to radiation during solar maximum
ID: FIGM-CT-2000-00068
Start date: 2000-07-01, End date: 2004-09-30
Aircrew are exposed to an increased amount of radiation in the upper atmosphere due to the higher cruising altitudes adopted over the last decade. The inclusion of cosmic radiation as occupational exposure under revised European Union Council Directive 96/29/EURATOM has highli...

In-flight measurements of route doses by the ANPA stack
The data obtained with the ANPA stack on hundreds of repeated return long-haul flights on the routes Milan-Los Angeles, Milan-Tokyo and Rome Rio-de Janeiro have been used to study the reproducibility of the route dose at different phases of the solar cycle. These data have p...
