For radiation-related cancer risk evaluation, it is important to assess not only influences of individual risk factors but also their interactive effects (e.g., additive, multiplicative, etc.). Multivariate analysis methods adapted for interactive effects allow such assessments. We have used a multivariate analysis approach to investigate the pair-wise(More)
This Mayak worker-based study focuses on evaluating possible associations between malignant liver cancers and chronic alpha irradiation, chronic gamma irradiation, and non-radiation risk factors (alcohol consumption, smoking, viral hepatitis, chemical exposure, and chronic digestive diseases). This is the first multivariate study related to liver cancer(More)
A cytogenetic study was performed on 79 plutonium (Pu) workers chronically exposed to alpha radiation from inhaled, low-transportable (insoluble) compounds of airborne 239Pu and to external gamma rays. Body burden estimates for 239Pu ranged from 0 to 15.5 kBq. Chromosomal aberrations (CAs) (stable and unstable) among peripheral blood lymphocytes and(More)
Numerous studies have reported on cancers among Mayak Production Association (PA) nuclear workers. Other studies have reported on serious deterministic effects of large radiation doses for the same population. This study relates to deterministic effects (respiratory system dysfunction) in Mayak workers after relatively small chronic radiation doses (alpha(More)
OBJECTIVES This paper describes findings from the study of chronic bronchitis (CB) incidence after occupational exposure to ionising radiation among workers employed at Russian Mayak Production Association (PA) during 1948 and 1982 and followed up until 2008 based on 'Mayak Worker Dosimetry System 2008'. METHODS Analyses were based on 2135 verified cases(More)
Haptoglobin (Hp) polymorphism and its significance for changes in biochemical and immunological parameters was analyzed in personnel of a nuclear plant receiving doses of external and internal irradiation close to maximum permissible levels. The distribution of Hp types and frequencies of alleles Hp in the group of probands asa a whole (1-1 - 14.1%; 2-1 -(More)
Retrospective study with "case-control" method revealed increased risk of gastric cancer among "Mayak" production association workers subjected to prolonged general external gamma-radiation in overall dose over 3.0 Gy. Major role in gaster cancer among "Mayak" production association workers was played by nonradiation factors: chronic gastritis with(More)
Incidence of chronic bronchitis has been studied in a cohort of 12,210 workers first employed at one of the main plants of the Mayak nuclear facility during 1948-1958 and followed up to 31 December 2005. Information on external gamma doses is available for virtually all of these workers; in contrast, plutonium body burden was measured only for 30% of(More)
416 workers of the enterprise of a nuclear industry aged from 52 to 78 years exposed to chronic influence of external gamma-irradiation in summary dozes 1.0-7.56 Gy and plutonium-239 incorporation, (in 32.3% of cases exceeding the allowable limit) were studied. A correlation between a complex of 26 biochemical and immunochemical parameters and the radiating(More)
It was shown on the basis of retrospective investigation of 500 workers at a nuclear enterprise (162 cases of lung cancer, 338 persons as matching control) that the interaction of external gamma-irradiation (> 2.0 Gy) and the body-burden of 239Pu (> 9.3 kBq) at lung cancer incidence in multiplicative. Combined influence of smoking and radiation factors was(More)
