  • THE ROLE OF NEUTRON ACTIVATION ANALYSIS AND RADIOANALYTICAL METHODS IN DOSE-EFFECT RELATIONSHIP STUDIES FOR THE SETTING OF TRACE METAL PROTECTION CRITERIA

Abstract

In order to prepare scientifically accurate health protection criteria documents for trace metals integrated multidisciplinary research is necessary. In particular, the rationale for structuring the documents should be based primarily on the two major questions of exposure and response. Unfortunately, in a majority of cases there is a paucity of relevant data to the establishment of dose- effect relationships. This work intends to show the role that neutron activation analysis and radiotracers with very high specific radioactivity have in solving problems relevant for establishing dose-effect relationships for trace metals. Typical applications in the different research areas involved in the preparation of the protection criteria, from source and exposure to levels and forms of trace metals in humans, are presented.
