Chernobyl, an Integrated, Pan-European Study: Morphology, Oncogenes, DNA Repair and Outcome in Radiation Carcinogenesis (CHIPS), Summary report

Project ID: FIGH-CT-1999-00004
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

The availability of paired normal tissue/thyroid carcinoma samples from a population where the tumours can be shown to due to exposure to radiation (those exposed in childhood to radioactive fallout from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster) presents a unique opportunity to unravel the mechanisms involved in radiation associated carcinogenesis. The objective of this study is to investigate the link between exposure of children to radiation, the subsequent development of tumours and how their morphology, molecular and cell biology influence clinical outcome.
