Concentration of the radionuclide 226Ra was determined in almost every type of bottled mineral water commercially available in Hungary. Determination of the radon coming from the radium dissolved in the water was used for activity measurement. As the results show, the 226Ra concentrations exceed the level of 100 mBq l(-1) in six cases out of the 28 types of(More)
Clinicopathological studies of 181 patients with liver cirrhosis undergoing autopsy in the pathology department of a municipal hospital between 1973 and 1976 are reported. The main etiological types were alcoholic (25.4 per cent), HBsAg positive (14.9 per cent), and cryptogenic cirrhosis (54.7 per cent). Four patients had multifactorial and secondary(More)
Diacetyldianhydrogalactitol (DADAG), a new alkylating hexitol derivative, was given in 30-min infusions for 5 consecutive days or as a single high-dose administration. The parent drug was eliminated in a biphasic manner, with a terminal half-life of 30–40 h. Dianhydrogalactitol (DAG), the main, pharmacologically active metabolite, appeared after a lag time(More)
Diacetyldianhydrogalactitol (DADAG), a new alkylating sugar alcohol derivative, was administered as single, 30-min infusions in doses ranging from 390 to 1200 mg/m2. The dose-limiting toxicity was myelosuppression. The median times to WBC nadir and regeneration were 16 and 21 days, and to platelet nadir and recovery 20 and 27, respectively. Nausea and(More)
Data collected for 10 years following the Chernobyl accident in 1986 have provided a unique opportunity to test the reliability of computer models for contamination of terrestrial and aquatic environments. The Iput River scenario was used by the Dose Reconstruction Working Group of the BIOMASS (Biosphere Modelling and Assessment Methods) programme. The test(More)
The Hanford test scenario described an accidental release of 131I to the environment from the Hanford Purex Chemical Separations Plant in September 1963. Based on monitoring data collected after the release, this scenario was used by the Dose Reconstruction Working Group of BIOMASS to test models typically used in dose reconstructions. The primary exposure(More)

For the Michaelis-Menten binding kinetics and for a two- and a three-compartmental model a parameter sensitivity analysis is performed to design experiments. According to the mathematical results in the case of the binding kinetics the substrate concentrations s approximately Km are optimal in view to the variance of the Michaelis constant Km. In the case(More)
Transfer coefficients for 137Cs from the Chernobyl accident were determined for milk (Fm) and meat (Ff) of cows and sheep in Hungary. Fm and Ff for both cows and sheep fed forage harvested within 1 mo of the accident were lower than results reported for worldwide fallout from weapons tests. Forage harvested 60 d or later after the accident produced an Fm(More)
This paper describes the development and application of site-specific biosphere models that might be used for assessment of potential exposures in the framework of performance assessment studies of nuclear waste disposals. Model development follows the Reference Biosphere Methodology that has been set up in the framework of the BIOMASS study. In this paper,(More)
In the framework of the BioMoSA project for the development of biosphere assessment models for radioactive waste disposal the Reference Biosphere Methodology developed in the IAEA programme BIOMASS was applied to five locations, situated in different European countries. Specific biosphere models were applied to assess the hypothetical contamination of a(More)
