BACKGROUND Although high doses of ionizing radiation have long been linked to circulatory disease, evidence for an association at lower exposures remains controversial. However, recent analyses suggest excess relative risks at occupational exposure levels. OBJECTIVES We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to summarize information on(More)
PURPOSE To present previously unavailable data on the use of stem cell administration to aid recovery of victims of the Chernobyl disaster. On 26 April 1986, an accident at Unit 4 of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant took place during the planned test of one of the safety systems. The diagnosis of acute radiation syndrome (ARS) was confirmed in 134(More)
L1210/VCR cells, which express an abundant amount of P-glycoprotein (P-gp), were found to be resistant to thapsigargin--an inhibitor of sarcoplasmic/endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase (SERCA). In the current paper, we have studied the possible differences among L1210 and L1210/VCR cells in expression of endoplasmic reticulum proteins involved in the(More)
AIM Although acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) arising after radiation exposure is considered to be secondary, little is known about the molecular mechanisms by which the radiation induces the leukemogenic phenotype. The aim of the study was to analyze whether the MLL translocations are as frequent in radiation-associated AML as in spontaneous AML cases. (More)
Several studies suggested a causal link between AML1 gene rearrangements and both radiation-induced acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Fifty-three AML samples were analyzed for the presence of AML1 abnormalities using fluorescent in-situ hybridization (FISH) and reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Of(More)
Objective. Comprehensive cytogenetic analysis of the effects of sodium lignohumate in induced γ-irradiation mutagenesis in Allium-test. Materials and methods. Analysis of the root meristem cells of Allium cepa L. seeds carried by ana-telophase. Lignohumate investigated the effect of sodium (100 mg/l) on cytogenetic effects γ-irradiation (137Cs) at doses of(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this work was to determine and compare the features of DNA repair gene XRCC1 Arg399Gln and XPD Lys751Gln polymorphisms in patients with thyroid cancer (TC), who were exposed to ionizing radiation (IR) as a result of the Chornobyl disaster, and in patients without exposure to ionizing radiation in history. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) can develop as a secondary malignancy following radiotherapy, but also following low-dose environmental or occupational radiation exposure. Therapy-related AML frequently carries deletions of chromosome 5q and/or 7, but for low-dose exposure associated AML this has not been described. For the present study we performed(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to examine the JAK2 V617F, the G1691A allele of factor V, and the G20210A prothrombin gene mutation status, and their predictive value for thrombosis in patients with Ph-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) in Ukraine, with special emphasize to patient exposed to ionizing radiation due to the Chernobyl accident.
