Recent insights into the mechanisms underlying the biological effects of low dose effects of ionising radiation have revealed that similar mechanisms can be induced by chemical stressors in the environment. This means that interactions between radiation and chemicals are likely and that the outcomes following mixed exposures to radiation and chemicals may not be predictable for human health, by consideration of single agent effects. Our understanding of the biological effects of low dose… Expand
In Vivo Interactions between Ionizing Radiation, Inflammation and Chemical Carcinogens Identified by Increased DNA Damage Responses
TLDR
The data demonstrate that exposure to ionizing radiation on two separate occasions ten days apart leads to an increase in the percentage of cells with a sub-G0 DNA content compared to cells exposed only once, and this is a greater than additive effect. Expand
Cooperative biological effects between ionizing radiation and other physical and chemical agents.
Exposure to ionizing radiation (IR), at environmentally and therapeutically relevant doses or as a result of diagnostics or accidents, causes cyto- and genotoxic damage. However, exposure to IR aloneExpand
The radiobiology/radiation protection interface in healthcare.
The current knowledge of radiation effects is reviewed and implications for its application in healthcare considered. The 21st L H Gray conference gathered leading experts in radiobiology, radiationExpand
Low dose of uranium induces multigenerational epigenetic effects in rat kidney
TLDR
The results confirm the importance of the developmental windows’ sensitivity in addition to the sexual dimorphisms of the offspring in order to distinguish the sexual differences and the developmental process that are critical windows for epigenetic effects over generations. Expand
Applying a multiscale systems biology approach to study the effect of chronic low-dose exposure to uranium in rat kidneys
TLDR
The results demonstrate that multiscale systems biology is useful in elucidating the most discriminative pathways from genomic to metabolomic levels for assessing the biological impact of this low-level environmental exposure, i.e. the exposome. Expand
Uncomfortable issues in radiation protection posed by low-dose radiobiology
TLDR
Issues are raised which suggest that low-dose effects are much more complex than has been previously assumed, including genomic instability, bystander effects, multiple stressor exposures and chronic exposures. Expand
Radiation-Induced Bystander Effects and Stress-Induced Mutagenesis
TLDR
This chapter reviews knowledge of radiation-induced bystander effects, and how they may contribute to the authors' mechanistic understanding of mutagenesis and adaptive evolution, and implications for disease therapy, protection of species—including humans—from stressors such as radiation, and mechanisms of evolutionary change are discussed. Expand
Changing paradigms in radiobiology.
TLDR
The changing views of radiobiology are discussed and how they are influencing thought in environmental and medical science and systems biology is considered. Expand

TLDR
Optimal response must be based on the best available science and requires scientists who can define, prioritise and address the gaps in knowledge with the range of expertise from basic physics to biology to translational research to systems expertise to response planning to healthcare policy to communications.

Stress-associated radiation effects in pygmy wood mouse Apodemus uralensis (Muridae, Rodentia) populations from the East-Urals Radioactive Trace
TLDR
The level of LPO, catalase activity, and DNA/protein ratio in the spleen and the total protein content in the adrenal glands were the most sensitive to the interaction of population size and radiation exposure. Expand

TLDR
In this opinion, both the linear no-threshold-response and the threshold-response models might not be suitable in predicting cancer risk at low radiation doses in a quantitative sense. Expand

TLDR
The aim is to provide an enhanced basis for describing the nature of the dose-response curve for induced tumors at low levels of exposure, and to establish a role for oxidative damage and cellular signaling in the etiology of these cellular responses. Expand
Environmentally relevant mixed exposures to radiation and heavy metals induce measurable stress responses in Atlantic salmon.
TLDR
The results, although complex, indicate that these stress signal responses may aid in the mechanistic investigation of mixed contaminant effects in fish exposed to metals and radiation. Expand
Heavy metals of relevance to human health induce genomic instability
TLDR
It is shown that cadmium and nickel can produce delayed effects in human cells in vitro, which are characteristic of genomic instability, even at levels where no acute toxic effects can be demonstrated. Expand
Effects of hTERT on metal ion-induced genomic instability
TLDR
The type of genomic instability in human cells may depend critically on whether they are telomerase-positive or -negative and that their sensitivities to metals could depend onWhether they are clustered or diffuse. Expand
The effects of gamma rays on longevity
TLDR
Data emerged suggesting that low dose rates/cumulative doses enhanced longevity in mice and guinea pigs of both sexes, and the average life span was enhanced by 10–30% but not the maximum life span potential. Expand

The dogma that genetic alterations are restricted to directly irradiated cells has been challenged by observations in which effects of ionizing radiation, characteristically associated with theExpand
ROS effects on neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease and related disorders: on environmental stresses of ionizing radiation.
TLDR
A model of neurodegeneration based upon the complexity of CNS functions is proposed, based upon evidence on the effects of an exogenous generator of ROS, ionizing radiation, in major population events with radionuclides. Expand
Deconstructing radiation hormesis.
TLDR
If shown to be sustainable, hormesis might ameliorate several serious issues plaguing radiation protection including the high economic cost of environmental regulatory compliance and public fear of radiation exposure. Expand
