Objective

The International Radiobiology Archives is a cooperative venture by European,jointly with Russian, US, and Japanese scientists to collect and safeguard data from long-term radiation studies on animals to make them available for furthe revaluation. The proposed work will complete and extend the present database and publish it on CD Rom with explanations for distribution to scientists and their institutions. It will also develop a Website containing information on such studies. The database will enable scientists to improve with modern methods organspecific dosimetric models for incorporated radionuclides, and to assess risk estimates especially for radionuclides for which no human data are available. In addition, the database will be useful for studies on aging, risks of cancer, andto test theories on synergistic effects.
