An understanding of the "bioavailability" of disseminated radiocontaminants is a necessary adjunct in order to tailor treatment and to calculate dose. A simple test has been designed to predict the bioavailability of different actinide forms likely to be found after dissemination of radioactive elements by dispersal devices or nuclear reactor incidents.(More)
UNLABELLED Abstract Purpose: To investigate the consequences of alveolar macrophage (AM) depletion on Mixed OXide fuel (MOX: U, Pu oxide) distribution and clearance, as well as lung damage following MOX inhalation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Rats were exposed to MOX by nose only inhalation. AM were depleted with intratracheal administration of liposomal(More)
Skin contamination is one of the most probable risks following major nuclear or radiological incidents. However, accidents involving skin contamination with radionuclides may occur in the nuclear industry, in research laboratories and in nuclear medicine departments. This work aims to measure the penetration of the radiological contaminant Americium (241Am)(More)
Plutonium (Pu) intake by inhalation is one of the major potential consequences following an accident in the nuclear industry or after improvised nuclear device explosion. Macrophages are essential players in retention and clearance of inhaled compounds. However, the extent to which these phagocytic cells are involved in these processes highly depends on the(More)
