The eyes of a prospective cohort of 8,607 Chernobyl clean-up workers (liquidators) were assessed for cataract at 12 and 14 years after exposure. The prevalence of strictly age-related cataracts was low, as expected (only 3.9% had nuclear cataracts at either examination), since 90% of the cohort was younger than 55 years of age at first examination. However,(More)
A cohort of 8,607 Ukrainian Chernobyl clean-up workers during 1986-1987 was formed to study cataract formation after ionizing radiation exposure. Study eligibility required the availability of sufficient exposure information to permit the reconstruction of doses to the lens of the eye. Eligible groups included civilian workers, such as those who built the(More)
The discontinuous nature of the solar power forces to study the dynamic behavior of solar plants to characterize their operations, to deepen their process understanding and to improve the performance and maintenance. The present paper described the dynamic simulation of concentrating solar plants with the aim to define a reasonable simplified layout as well(More)
Purpose: In February 1988, 66 patients (98 eyes) affected with solar retinopathy due to sun gazing during the same religious ritual were observed at the University Eye Clinic of Chieti.
