The respiratory uptake rate of n-hexane showed considerable differences in six healthy male persons, exposed at rest to 360 mg/m3 and 720 mg/m3 of n-hexane in inspired air and to 360 mg/m3 under different levels of physical exercise. These differences could partly be explained by a positive correlation with the amount of body fat. At rest also a strong(More)
A measurement procedure based on alanine/electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) dosimetry was implemented successfully providing simple, stable, and accurate dose-to-water (D(w)) measurements. The correspondence between alanine and ionization chamber measurements in reference conditions was excellent. Alanine/EMR dosimetry might be a valuable alternative to(More)
Age-related decreases of serum testosterone (total, free and bioavailable), DHEA, DHEA-S, growth hormone (GH) and IGF-I are well established in elderly healthy men. Although substantial, the decrease of these hormones is small compared to the estrogen changes observed in postmenopausal women. Elderly men also loose bone and muscle, gain fat and have less(More)
The Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements operates a 7.0 MV Van de Graaff accelerator to generate monoenergetic neutron radiation for experimental applications. Owing to increased intensities of generated neutron fields and the more stringent regulation related to the maximum dose for the public, a concrete shielding wall surrounding the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of photo-initiator on the degree of conversion (DC) and elution of Bis-GMA and HEMA for 8 one-step adhesive formulations. METHODS We used Scotchbond Universal ('SBU-CQ/amine_4.0', 3M ESPE), containing about 2wt% camphorquinone (CQ) and 2wt% ethyl-4-dimethylamino benzoate (EDMAB), an experimental 'SBU-TPO_2.1' version,(More)
PURPOSE To avoid complications in total body irradiation (TBI), it is important to achieve a homogeneous dose distribution throughout the body and to deliver a correct dose to the lung which is an organ at risk. The purpose of this work was to validate the TBI dose protocol and to check the accuracy of the 3D dose calculations of the treatment planning(More)
