Loss of normal G1 checkpoint control is an early step in carcinogenesis, independent of p53 status. (1/190)

Recent studies have described a diminished radiation-induced G1 arrest in some wild-type (wt) p53 human tumor cell lines compared to normal human fibroblasts. However, the significance of this finding was unclear, particularly because tumor cell lines may have accumulated additional genetic changes after long periods in culture. Because malignant transformation of individual cells is thought to be an early step in carcinogenesis, we have used a model system of normal and transformed mouse fibroblast 10T1/2 cell clones to examine whether loss of G1 checkpoint control may be an early event in tumor development and to study the relationships between G1 arrest, radiosensitivity, and genetic alterations. Twelve transformed clones were established from type III foci induced by irradiation of normal 10T1/2 cells and were compared with six clones derived from wt 10T1/2 cells. Three of the transformed clones expressed mutant p53; two of these had the same point mutation at codon 132 (exon 5), and one had a point mutation at codon 135. The remaining transformed and normal clones had wt p53 status. The radiosensitivity of transformed clones, as measured by a clonogenic assay, was similar to that of normal clones; the three clones with mutant p53 did not differ from the others. There was no relationship between G1 arrest and radiosensitivity. Normal 10T1/2 cell clones showed a transient G1 arrest lasting approximately 9 h after 6 Gy of irradiation. This G1 arrest was either absent or markedly reduced in all of the transformed clones, regardless of p53 status. These results suggest that diminished G1 checkpoint control is an early event in the process of carcinogenesis that is associated with the malignant transformation of individual cells and is independent of p53 status.  (+info)

Targeted cytoplasmic irradiation with alpha particles induces mutations in mammalian cells. (2/190)

Ever since x-rays were shown to induce mutation in Drosophila more than 70 years ago, prevailing dogma considered the genotoxic effects of ionizing radiation, such as mutations and carcinogenesis, as being due mostly to direct damage to the nucleus. Although there was indication that alpha particle traversal through cellular cytoplasm was innocuous, the full impact remained unknown. The availability of the microbeam at the Radiological Research Accelerator Facility of Columbia University made it possible to target and irradiate the cytoplasm of individual cells in a highly localized spatial region. By using dual fluorochrome dyes (Hoechst and Nile Red) to locate nucleus and cellular cytoplasm, respectively, thereby avoiding inadvertent traversal of nuclei, we show here that cytoplasmic irradiation is mutagenic at the CD59 (S1) locus of human-hamster hybrid (AL) cells, while inflicting minimal cytotoxicity. The principal class of mutations induced are similar to those of spontaneous origin and are entirely different from those of nuclear irradiation. Furthermore, experiments with radical scavenger and inhibitor of intracellular glutathione indicated that the mutagenicity of cytoplasmic irradiation depends on generation of reactive oxygen species. These findings suggest that cytoplasm is an important target for genotoxic effects of ionizing radiation, particularly radon, the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. In addition, cytoplasmic traversal by alpha particles may be more dangerous than nuclear traversal, because the mutagenicity is accomplished by little or no killing of the target cells.  (+info)

Preparation of alpha-emitting 213Bi-labeled antibody constructs for clinical use. (3/190)

Preclinical evaluation of alpha particle-emitting 213Bi-labeled antibody constructs have demonstrated the specificity and potency of these agents in a variety of cancer systems. The transition of a 213Bi-radiolabeled antibody from a preclinical construct to a clinical drug represented a difficult task that involved development of reliable and validated methods to provide multiple MBq quantities of a pure, immunoreactive agent that met pharmaceutical standards to treat patients. METHODS: The methods used for the preparation of (213Bi)CHX-A-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (DTPA)-HuM195, an alpha particle-emitting anti-CD33 antibody construct for therapy of myeloid leukemias, is used as a specific example. This article describes methods for reagent purification, drug labeling, radioprotection and chromatographic purification. Quality of the drug is evaluated using radiochemical incorporation and purity assays with instant thin-layer chromatography (ITLC) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), determination of cell-based antibody total immunereactivity, small animal safety, pyrogen level, sterility and radionuclidic purity. RESULTS: Sixty-seven doses were prepared. Individual doses ranged from 148 to 814 MBq. Specific activities ranged from 329 to 766 MBq/mg. The radiolabeling efficiency (median +/- SD) of CHX-A-DTPA-HuM195 with 213Bi was 81% +/- 9% (n = 67) after 9 min. The construct was purified by size-exclusion chromatography and was found to be 99% +/- 2% pure (n = 67) by either ITLC or HPLC methods. The immunoreactivity of (213Bi)CHX-A-DTPA-HuM195 was 89% +/- 9% (n = 44) and was independent of the specific activity. The formulated pharmaceutical was found to contain < or =4 +/- 1 EU/mL pyrogens (n = 66); all samples examined were sterile. An 225Ac radionuclidic impurity was present at a level of 0.04 +/- 0.03 x 10(-6)/mL (n = 10) in a product volume of 7.4 +/- 0.5 mL (n = 67). Each of the 67 doses was injected intravenously into patients without complication as part of a phase I clinical trial. CONCLUSION: These data show that 213Bi-labeled antibody constructs can be prepared and administered safely to humans at a wide range of therapeutic levels.  (+info)

Pharmacokinetics and dosimetry of an alpha-particle emitter labeled antibody: 213Bi-HuM195 (anti-CD33) in patients with leukemia. (4/190)

Data from nine patients with leukemia participating in a phase I activity-escalation study of HuM195, labeled with the alpha-particle emitter 213Bi (half-life = 45.6 min), were used to estimate pharmacokinetics and dosimetry. This is the first trial using an alpha-particle emitter in humans. The linear energy transfer of alpha particles is several hundredfold greater than that of beta emissions. The range in tissue is approximately 60-90 microm. METHODS: The activity administered to patients ranged from 0.6 to 1.6 GBq. Patient imaging was initiated at the start of each injection. Thirty 1-min images followed by ten 3-min images were collected in dynamic mode; a 20% photopeak window centered at 440 keV was used. Blood samples were collected until 3 h postinjection and counted in a gamma counter. Contours around the liver and spleen were drawn on the anterior and posterior views and around a portion of the spine on the posterior views. No other organs were visualized. RESULTS: The percentage injected dose in the liver and spleen volumes increased rapidly over the first 10-15 min to a constant value for the remaining hour of imaging, yielding a very rapid uptake followed by a plateau in the antibody uptake curves. The kinetic curves were integrated to yield cumulated activity. The mean energy emitted per nuclear transition for 213Bi and its daughters, adjusted by a relative biologic effectiveness of 5 for alpha emissions, was multiplied by the cumulated activity to yield the absorbed dose equivalent. Photon dose to the total body was determined by calculating a photon-absorbed fraction. The absorbed dose equivalent to liver and spleen volumes ranged from 2.4 to 11.2 and 2.9 to 21.9 Sv, respectively. Marrow (or leukemia) mean dose ranged from 6.6 to 12.2 Sv. The total-body dose (photons only) ranged from 2.2 x 10(-4) to 5.8 x 10(-4) Gy. CONCLUSION: This study shows that patient imaging of 213Bi, an alpha-particle emitter, labeled to HuM195 is possible and may be used to derive pharmacokinetics and dosimetry. The absorbed dose ratio between marrow, liver and spleen volumes and the whole body for 213Bi-HuM195 is 1000-fold greater than that commonly observed with beta-emitting radionuclides used for radioimmunotherapy.  (+info)

Localization of tumor suppressor gene candidates by cytogenetic and short tandem repeat analyses in tumorigenic human bronchial epithelial cells. (5/190)

Radon exposure is associated with increased risk for bronchogenic carcinoma. Mutagenesis analyses have revealed that radon induces mostly multi-locus chromosome deletions. Based on these findings, it was hypothesized that deletion analysis of multiple radon-induced malignant transformants would reveal common mutations in chromosomal regions containing tumor suppressor genes responsible for malignant transformation. This hypothesis was supported by a previous study in which tumorigenic derivatives of the human papillomavirus 18-immortalized human bronchial epithelial cell line BEP2D were established following irradiation with 30 cGy of high linear energy transfer radon-simulated alpha-particles. Herein, we describe the analyses of 10 additional tumorigenic derivative cell lines resulting from the irradiation of five additional independent BEP2D populations. The new transformants have common cytogenetic changes, including the loss of chromosome (ch)Y, one of three copies of ch8, one of two copies of ch11p15-pter and one of three copies of ch14. These changes are the same as those reported previously. Analysis of PCR-amplified short tandem repeats of informative loci confirmed the loss of heterozygosity (LOH) at 12 loci spanning the length of ch8 in cell lines from four of the total of eight irradiation treatments to date and the loss of chY in all cell lines (8 of 8). LOH analysis with a total of 17 informative loci confirmed loss on ch14 in transformants from seven of eight irradiation treatments and indicated a 0.5-1.7 cM region of common involvement centered around locus D14S306. No LOH was detected at any of the informative loci on ch11. The overall results support our stated hypothesis. Further studies are currently in progress to determine whether the ch8 and ch14 regions contain genes with tumor suppressor function in bronchial epithelial cells.  (+info)

Induction of a bystander mutagenic effect of alpha particles in mammalian cells. (6/190)

Ever since the discovery of X-rays was made by Rontgen more than a hundred years ago, it has always been accepted that the deleterious effects of ionizing radiation such as mutation and carcinogenesis are attributable mainly to direct damage to DNA. Although evidence based on microdosimetric estimation in support of a bystander effect appears to be consistent, direct proof of such extranuclear/extracellular effects are limited. Using a precision charged particle microbeam, we show here that irradiation of 20% of randomly selected A(L) cells with 20 alpha particles each results in a mutant fraction that is 3-fold higher than expected, assuming no bystander modulation effect. Furthermore, analysis by multiplex PCR shows that the types of mutants induced are significantly different from those of spontaneous origin. Pretreatment of cells with the radical scavenger DMSO had no effect on the mutagenic incidence. In contrast, cells pretreated with a 40 microM dose of lindane, which inhibits cell-cell communication, significantly decreased the mutant yield. The doses of DMSO and lindane used in these experiments are nontoxic and nonmutagenic. We further examined the mutagenic yield when 5-10% of randomly selected cells were irradiated with 20 alpha particles each. Results showed, likewise, a higher mutant yield than expected assuming no bystander effects. Our studies provide clear evidence that irradiated cells can induce a bystander mutagenic response in neighboring cells not directly traversed by alpha particles and that cell-cell communication process play a critical role in mediating the bystander phenomenon.  (+info)

Factors underlying the cell growth-related bystander responses to alpha particles. (7/190)

Increases in cell proliferation are widely viewed as being of importance in carcinogenesis. We report that exposure of normal human lung fibroblasts to a low dose of alpha particles like those emitted by radon/radon progeny stimulates their proliferation in vitro, and this response also occurs when unirradiated cells are treated with supernatants from alpha-irradiated cells. We attribute the promitogenic response to superoxide dismutase- and catalase-inhibitable a particle-induced increases in the concentrations of transforming growth factor beta1 (TGF-beta1) in cell supernatants. TGF-beta1 at concentrations commensurate with those in the supernatants capably induces increases in intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) in unirradiated cells. Furthermore, the addition of supernatants from alpha-irradiated cells to unirradiated cells decreases cellular levels of TP53 and CDKN1A and increases CDC2 and proliferating cell nuclear antigen in the latter. Like the increased intracellular ROS bystander effect, this "decreased TP53/CDKN1A response" can be mimicked in otherwise untreated cells by the addition of low concentrations of TGF-beta1. Our results indicate that alpha particle-associated increases in cell growth correlate with intracellular increases in ROS along with decreases in TP53 and CDKN1A, and that these cellular responses are mechanistically coupled. As well, the proliferating cell nuclear antigen and CDC2 increases that occur along with the decreased TP53/CDKN1A bystander effect also would expectedly favor enhanced cell growth. Such processes may account for cell hyperplastic responses in the conducting airways of the lower respiratory track that occur after inhalation exposure to radon/ radon progeny, as well as, perhaps, other ROS-associated environmental stresses.  (+info)

Establishment of a radiation- and estrogen-induced breast cancer model. (8/190)

It is well accepted that cancer arises in a multistep fashion in which exposure to environmental carcinogens is a major etiological factor. The aim of this work was to establish an experimental breast cancer model in order to understand the mechanism of neoplastic transformation induced by high LET radiation in the presence of 17beta-estradiol (E). Immortalized human breast cells (MCF-10F) were exposed to low doses of high LET alpha particles (150 keV/microm) and subsequently cultured in the presence or absence of E for periods of up to 10 months post-irradiation. MCF-10F cells irradiated with either a single 60 cGy dose or 60/60 cGy doses of alpha particles showed gradual phenotypic changes including altered morphology, increase in cell proliferation relative to the control, anchorage-independent growth and invasive capability before becoming tumorigenic in nude mice. In alpha particle-irradiated cells and in those cells subsequently cultured in the presence of E, increased BRCA1, BRCA2 and RAD51 expression were detected by immunofluorescence staining and quantified by confocal microscopy. These studies showed that high LET radiation such as that emitted by radon progeny, in the presence of estrogen, induced a cascade of events indicative of cell transformation and tumorigenicity in human breast epithelial cells.  (+info)

Alpha particles are emitted mainly by the heaviest of the isotopes (e.g., all elements above bismuth (Bi-209) are radioactive, and most are alpha particle emitters. These nuclei are too big to be stable and decay by emitting an alpha particle. Very often the resulting nucleus, called a Daughter nucleus, is also too big and unstable. It too usually emits an alpha particle. This process can happen a number of times depending upon the starting isotope and the ultimate stable isotope. The stable isotope of the alpha emitters is usually lead (the element just below Bismuth, and has 4 stable isotopes for the Decay Chains to stop on). For example, the most abundant isotope of uranium, U-238, it takes the emission of 5 alpha particles to get to stable lead.. Alpha particles are high speed helium atoms without electrons. Consisting of a nucleus of 2 protons and 2 neutrons, this is the largest common (naturally occurring) radiation particle. Since there are no electrons, the alpha particle is highly ...

Polonium-based sources of alpha particles were produced in the former Soviet Union.[56] Such sources were applied for measuring the thickness of industrial coatings via attenuation of alpha radiation.[57] Because of intense alpha radiation, a one-gram sample of 210Po will spontaneously heat up to above 500 °C (932 °F) generating about 140 watts of power. Therefore, 210Po is used as an atomic heat source to power radioisotope thermoelectric generators via thermoelectric materials.[3][14][58][59] For example, 210Po heat sources were used in the Lunokhod 1 (1970) and Lunokhod 2 (1973) Moon rovers to keep their internal components warm during the lunar nights, as well as the Kosmos 84 and 90 satellites (1965).[56][60] The alpha particles emitted by polonium can be converted to neutrons using beryllium oxide, at a rate of 93 neutrons per million alpha particles.[58] Thus Po-BeO mixtures or alloys are used as a neutron source, for example, in a neutron trigger or initiator for nuclear ...

sources]. Typically, when radiation treatment is recommended for cancer patients, doctors are able to choose from several radiopharmaceuticals that use low-energy radiation particles, known as beta particles.. For years, scientists have been studying how to use alpha particles, which are radioactive particles that contain a large amount of energy, in cancer treatments.. The challenges to using alpha particles, which are more than 7,000 times heavier than beta particles, include confining the powerful alpha particles in a designated location inside the body while preventing radiation from wandering to healthy organs and tissues.. If you think of beta particles as slingshots or arrows, alpha particles would be similar to cannon balls, says J. David Robertson, director of research at the University of Missouri Research Reactor and professor of chemistry in the College of Arts and Science.. Scientists have had some successes using alpha particles recently, but nothing that can battle different ...
The ranges of the alpha-particles proceeding from the 334-, 867-, 927-, 1220-, and 1363-kev resonances in the bombardment of fluorine with protons were measured. The Qs of those particles obtained at 334, 867, 927, and 1363 kev were found to be identical, and have the value 1.81 ± 0.04 Mev. The Q of the low energy alpha-particles obtained at the 1220-kev resonance was found to be 1.93±0.07 Mev. The two values thus yield an energy separation of 0.12±0.08 Mev for the two corresponding states of O16. In addition it was shown that at least one of the two resonances which are in the neighborhood of 900 kev must yield short range alpha-particles whose angular distribution is not spherically symmetric. ...
testing facility, and then broadened the net to see who else had been in contact with the alpha radiation. As of Thursday, there were 195 workers with urine samples sent away for testing, a number that Saunders called conservative.. Of those initial 19 directly affected, 14 results have come back in line with the companys prediction that they would be under the regulatory limits of alpha radiation. The highest dosage was 20.6mSv, while the low dosage was 11.5 mSv.. The maximum dose acceptable for nuclear workers is 100mSv (10,000 mrem) over a five-year period, with no more than 50mSv in any given year.. Alpha radiation cannot penetrate the skin, but may be dangerous if inhaled or exposed to an open wound. It can cause radiation poisoning and chromosome damage.. Sawyer told the CNSC that each worker that has been tested will be met with one-on-one to discuss the results and how the testing was done. He also mentioned that independent testing will be done to give the workers peace of mind, which ...
OBJECTIVE: Ra is an alpha particle emitter that targets areas of increased bone turnover in bone metastases. Alpha particles account for 95% of the 27.8 MeV emitted per decay. Less than 2% of the emissions are from photons. This means that a high absorbed dose will be delivered locally, although the number of photons for imaging will be low. The purpose of this study was to investigate the possibility of quantitative imaging of Ra to enable biodistribution studies. METHODS: A Philips Forte gamma camera, equipped with a medium-energy collimator, was used. Basic imaging parameters were determined from phantom studies, and the accuracy of activity quantification was tested in a phantom study and within a patient study. RESULTS: Imaging parameters were determined for the three most suitable photon peaks from the acquired energy spectrum (82, 154 and 270 keV). Camera sensitivity is constant for circular sources with areas greater than 10 cm. The spatial resolution (full-width at half-maximum) was 1.1 ...
Natural calcium is a mixture of five stable isotopes (40Ca, 42Ca, 43Ca, 44Ca, and 46Ca) and one isotope with a half-life so long that it can be considered stable for all practical purposes (48Ca, with a half-life of about 4.3 × 1019 years). Calcium is the first (lightest) element to have six naturally occurring isotopes.[12] By far the most common isotope of calcium in nature is 40Ca, which makes up 96.941% of all natural calcium. It is produced in the silicon-burning process from fusion of alpha particles and is the heaviest stable nuclide with equal proton and neutron numbers; its occurrence is also supplemented slowly by the decay of primordial 40K. Adding another alpha particle would lead to unstable 44Ti, which quickly decays via two successive electron captures to stable 44Ca; this makes up 2.806% of all natural calcium and is the second-most common isotope. The other four natural isotopes, 42Ca, 43Ca, 46Ca, and 48Ca, are significantly rarer, each comprising less than 1% of all natural ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Alpha particle mutagenesis of human lymphoblastoid cell lines. AU - Amundson, S. A.. AU - Chen, D. J.. AU - Okinaka, R. T.. PY - 1996. Y1 - 1996. N2 - Despite being derived from the same donor, the human lymphoblastoid cell lines WTK1 and TK6 have markedly different responses to low LET radiation. We originally observed that WTK1 was more resistant to the cytotoxic effects of X-irradiation, but significantly more sensitive to mutation induction at both the TK and HPRT loci. In an effort to better understand these properties, we have examined the effects of α-particles on these cells. Relative to TK6, WTK1 has enhanced survival and mutation after both X-ray and α-particle exposure. While the HPRT locus was significantly more mutable in WTK1 as a function of α-particle versus X-ray dose, the TK locus was only slightly more sensitive to a-particle mutagenesis. In addition, the slowly growing TK mutants that constitute the majority of X-ray-induced TK mutants of TK6 were recovered ...

Irradiation is the exposure to radiation from a source located at some distance outside the body. Irradiation from a source of alpha radiation presents a low risk because alpha radiation is easily absorbed - by air, clothing, or the layer of dead skin cells on your skin. Contamination is the exposure to radiation from a source inside your body, or on your skin or clothes. This is generally more dangerous, because cells are unprotected. ...
Glycogen, a highly branched polymer of glucose, functioning as a blood-glucose buffer. It comprises relatively small beta particles, which may be joined as larger aggregate alpha particles. The molecular size distributions from size-exclusion chromatography of liver glycogen from non-diabetic and diabetic mice show that diabetic mice have impaired alpha particle formation in liver glycogen, with diabetic mice unable to form as many large glycogen particles as non-diabetic controls. Glycogen structure is analysed during degradation by acid hydrolysis and by glycogen phosphorylase, from the size distributions, obtained using size-exclusion chromatography, of pig-liver glycogen and phytoglycogen as functions of time and size. These experiments show that alpha particles degrade via a different mechanism to that of the smaller beta particles, indicating a different type of chemical bonding (most likely proteinaceous). This shows that diabetic mice, which have been shown to lack the larger alpha ...
A series of analytic and numerical models have been developed for the prediction and interpretation of the energy spectrum of the neutron emission from thermonuclear deuteriumtritium (DT) plasmas. The main component of the neutron emission, due to reactions between thermal fuel ions, has been modeled as well as minority components due to the presence of fast (supra-thermal) ions. In particular, the so-called alpha-particle knock-on neutron (AKN) emission has been analyzed and found to carry information on the con- finement of fast alpha particles inside the plasma. The alpha particles carry one fifth of the fusion power generated in the plasma and provide the plasma self-heating. This thesis is devoted to this central endeavor of fusion research and the possibilities for its study in todays largest magnetic confinement devices, the tokamaks.. The developed models have been used for the interpretation of experimental data taken during the first deuterium-tritium experiment (DTE1) at the Joint ...

Radiation can harm either the whole body (somatic damage) or eggs and sperm (genetic damage). Its effects are more pronounced in cells that reproduce rapidly, such as the stomach lining, hair follicles, bone marrow, and embryos. This is why patients undergoing radiation therapy often feel nauseous or sick to their stomach, lose hair, have bone aches, and so on, and why particular care must be taken when undergoing radiation therapy during pregnancy.. Different types of radiation have differing abilities to pass through material ([link]). A very thin barrier, such as a sheet or two of paper, or the top layer of skin cells, usually stops alpha particles. Because of this, alpha particle sources are usually not dangerous if outside the body, but are quite hazardous if ingested or inhaled (see the Chemistry in Everyday Life feature on Radon Exposure). Beta particles will pass through a hand, or a thin layer of material like paper or wood, but are stopped by a thin layer of metal. Gamma radiation is ...
Natural calcium is a mixture of five stable isotopes (40Ca, 42Ca, 43Ca, 44Ca, and 46Ca) and one isotope with a half-life so long that it can be considered stable for all practical purposes (48Ca, with a half-life of about 4.3 × 1019 years). Calcium is the first (lightest) element to have six naturally occurring isotopes.[12]. By far the most common isotope of calcium in nature is 40Ca, which makes up 96.941% of all natural calcium. It is produced in the silicon-burning process from fusion of alpha particles and is the heaviest stable nuclide with equal proton and neutron numbers; its occurrence is also supplemented slowly by the decay of primordial 40K. Adding another alpha particle would lead to unstable 44Ti, which quickly decays via two successive electron captures to stable 44Ca; this makes up 2.806% of all natural calcium and is the second-most common isotope. The other four natural isotopes, 42Ca, 43Ca, 46Ca, and 48Ca, are significantly rarer, each comprising less than 1% of all natural ...
The larger and more charged the radiation the more ionizations occur. Alpha particles are very highly ionizing, thus would have a larger LET than a low energy gamma. Alpha particles will cause more biological damage in a very small area ...
Biol. and in an affordable, high-throughput manner have constrained DNA damage and repair research on this topic. To resolve this, we developed an inexpensive, high capacity, 96-well plate-compatible alpha particle irradiator capable of delivering adjustable, low mGy/s particle radiation doses in multiple model systems Phthalylsulfacetamide and on the benchtop of a standard laboratory. The system enables Phthalylsulfacetamide monitoring alpha particle effects Phthalylsulfacetamide on DNA damage repair and signalling, genome stability pathways, oxidative stress, cell cycle phase distribution, cell viability and clonogenic survival using numerous microscopy-based and physical techniques. Most importantly, this method is foundational for high-throughput genetic screening and small molecule testing in mammalian and yeast cells.

To ionize an atom of any element requires the expenditure of a certain amount of work, dependent upon the particular element concerned. This energy may be acquired through impact with a rapidly moving electron, positive ion, or neutral atom, or through absorption of radiation. We shall be concerned with ionization by the impact of positive ions and [alpha]-particles. Suppose the colliding particle has more than sufficient energy to affect the removal of one electron, what is the net result of the collision? May it happen under certain favourable conditions that a second electron is removed, or does the ionization process invariably consist in the removal of a single electron? It was the object of this research to supply further experimental proof for the theory that more than one electron may be dislodged by single impact. Up until 1911 we had no unambiguous information as to what really happens when a high speed particle collides with a normal atom. It was not known with certainty whether one ...
Resonances in the yield of ground-state protons from alpha-particle bombardment of 31P were investigated in the energy range Eα = 1.7 − 3.3 MeV.

Angular distribution measurements lead to unique values of the resonance ... read more spin in all cases but one. The exception is the strong resonance at Eα = 3.302 MeV, which shows a deviation from forward-backward symmetry in the angular distribution, to be explained by assuming interference with some unknown broad resonance(s) with opposite parity, probably at higher energy. show less ...
The data suggest that alpha-particle immunotherapy to neovasculature, alone or in combination with sequential chemotherapy, is an effective approach to cancer therapy.
Im not sure. Alpha radiation might do more to damage your digestive tract, but then gamma radiation would penetrate furthest and damage a lot more than just the digestive tract.

Not that there is usually quite a low amount of tritium naturally, and that makes it mostly irrelevant in terms of radiation emitted as compared to other natural sources. But of course if one is working in the lab with H3 Labelled molecules, care not to ingest it is necessary, the low energy of the alpha radiation means however that there is really very little need to handle with special protection. The only danger comes from ingestion and metabolization of the tritiated material ...
Heres some more info: carcinogens are commonly radioactive. In this case, it is not the substance itself, but the gamma and alpha radiation that the substance releases (forms of high frequency light) that cause the cell damage. This makes cigarettes and alcoholic beverages particularly dangerous because of the high levels of radiation that they contain.. Beyond chemical carcinogens, there are several microbial agents that are known carcinagens. HPV (Human Paploma Virus, the virus that causes warts) and Hepititus B are examples.. There are also a multitude of carcinogens that naturally form on meat cooked at high temperatures (grilling or broiling for example).. ...

N2 - Radionuclide therapy (RNT) is an internal radiation therapy that can selectively damage cancer cells. Recently, the use of alpha-emitting radionuclides was initiated in RNT owing to its dose concentration and short range. In particular, 223Ra is widely used for bone metastasis of prostate cancer. Despite its potential for clinical applications, it is difficult to determine whether a drug has been properly delivered to the target lesion. As such, we propose a new method of monitoring nuclear gamma rays promptly and simultaneously emitted from 223Ra as alpha decay using a high-sensitivity Compton camera. We first observed a small ...

With respect to the cell as a whole, radiation seems like mosquitoes attacking a circus tent, but once inside, high-energy particles or rays can wreak havoc upon individual atoms and molecules that make up our cellular structure. Alpha particles, protons, and neutrons scatter whatever is in their path, using their mass energy to separate electrons from their parent nuclei. Beta rays whiz through a thin layer of cells, knocking other electrons out of their orbits until their rather limited energy is expended. Gamma and X-rays act similarly, but with a vengeance proportional to their energies and inversely proportional to their wavelengths. [Light, which is part of the same electromagnetic spectrum as both X-rays and gamma rays, behaves similarly. Long wavelength infrared light - otherwise known as radiant heat - has very little energy compared to short wavelength ultraviolet light... which can ultraviolate you on the beach if you dont use sunblock ...

When nuclear fuel, fabricated for the purpose of transmuting spent fuel is irradiated, significant amounts of He is produced from alpha particles mainly emitted when 242Cm decays into 238Pu. From irradiation experiments it is known that the presence of He in the solids alters the swelling behaviour of the material. The thesis presents the theoretical background from which nucleation models of He bubbles can be formulated. Such models are presented for He in metals, and the case of He in Mo is studied as an example. MgO, which together with Mo is suggested as a matrix material in transmutation fuel is also studied and the stability of He containing bubbles in this material is discussed.. By calculating parameters for a rate theory model derived from atomistic modelling, it is shown that He can stabilise vacancy clusters and cause cluster growth at temperatures and irradiation doses where nucleation and growth would not otherwise occur. At the initial stages of nucleation He can stabilise small ...
Development and integration of models for the whole tokamak plasma have progressed on the basis of experimental analyses and first principle simulations. Integrated models of core, edge-pedestal and scrape-off-layer (SOL)-divertor clarified complex and autonomous features of reactor relevant plasmas. The integrated core plasma model including an anomalous transport of alpha particles by Alfven eigenmodes is developed in the core transport code TOPICS-IB and indicates the degradation of fusion performance. The integrated rotation model is developed in the advanced transport code TASK/TX and clarifies the mechanism of alpha particle-driven toroidal flow. A transport model of high-Z impurities is developed and predicts large inward pinch in a plasma rotating in the direction counter to the plasma current. TOPICS-IB is extended to include the edge-pedestal model by integrating with the stability code, simple SOL-divertor and pellet models, and clarifies the mechanism of pellet triggered ELM. The ...
This review focuses on nuclear reactions in astrophysics and, more specifically, on reactions with light ions (nucleons and alpha particles) proceeding via the strong interaction. It is intended to present the basic definitions essential for studies in nuclear astrophysics, to point out the differences between nuclear reactions taking place in stars and in a terrestrial laboratory, and to illustrate some of the challenges to be faced in theoretical and experimental studies of those reactions. The discussion revolves around the relevant quantities for astrophysics, which are the astrophysical reaction rates. The sensitivity of the reaction rates to the uncertainties in the prediction of various nuclear properties is explored and some guidelines for experimentalists are also ...

Functional programming provides different programming styles for programmers to write their programs in. The differences are even more explicit under a lazy evaluation model, under which a computation of a value is only triggered upon its need. When facing the challenge of implementing solutions for multiple traversals algorithm problems, the functional programmer often tends to assume himself as the decision maker of all the implementation details: how many traversals to define, in which order to schedule them, which intermediate structures to define and traverse, just to name some. Another sub-paradigm is available, though. Given the proper will and sufficient practice, multiple traversal algorithms are possible to be implemented as lazy circular programs, where some of the programming work is handed to the lazy machinery.In this talk I will present a calculational rule to convert multiple traversal programs into single-pass circular ones. Feedback is more than expected, it is wanted! ...
of the element. Thus thee flight of charged particles was often simply called alpha radiation. Radium emitted other forms of radiation but Martland calculated that more than 90 percent of the particles shooting out of radium came from alpha radiation. This wasnt all that bad: alpha particles were in their way rather wishy-washy bits of atomic energy. They could be stopped by a sheet of paper, a layer of clothing, even the upper layer of dead cells that overlay the skin. The other forms of radiation were actually more formidable. Beta radiation easily sliced through paper but could be stopped by a sheet of aluminum; the hurtle of gamma radiation could only be blocked by a dense material like lead.. But inside the body, as Martland would soon realize, alpha radiation created a precisely engineered internal poisoning. The radium dust noted by the Harvard team posed a definite hazard because it could be inhaled. But the reason that the hard-working dial painters were so much sicker than others in ...

AU - De Toledo, Sonia M.. AU - Pain, Debkumar. AU - Azzam, Edouard I.. PY - 2011/4. Y1 - 2011/4. N2 - Widespread evidence indicates that exposure of cell populations to ionizing radiation results in significant biological changes in both the irradiated and nonirradiated bystander cells in the population. We investigated the role of radiation quality, or linear energy transfer (LET), and radiation dose in the propagation of stressful effects in the progeny of bystander cells. Confluent normal human cell cultures were exposed to low or high doses of 1GeV/u iron ions (LET ∼151 keV/μ m), 600 MeV/u silicon ions (LET ∼51 keV/μ m), or 1 GeV protons (LET ∼0.2 keV/μ m). Within minutes after irradiation, the cells were trypsinized and co-cultured with nonirradiated cells for 5 h. During this time, irradiated and ...

The present invention is a tape product suitable for use in the protection of semiconductor devices from alpha-particles. The product comprises a heat resistant support film, a pressure sensitive adhesive layer on one side of the support film, a least one alpha-particle protector member formed of a plastic material capable of protecting the semiconductor device releasably supported on the pressure sensitive adhesive, and a layer of heat resistant adhesive bonded to the plastic material on its side lying opposite to the side bonded to the pressure sensitive adhesive. Preferably, a primer layer lies between the heat resistant support film on the pressure sensitive adhesive to insure that clean removal of the support film and pressure sensitive adhesive from the surface of the alpha-particle protector member. In order to aid in this removal the surface of the alpha-particle protector member facing the pressure sensitive layer is also coated with a release coating. The product is used by bonding the heat

The microdosimetric interaction model simulates individual interactions of alpha particles with nuclei of sensitive target cells in human bronchial airway generations 2, 4, 6 and 10. For a normalized source density of Po 218 and Po 214 alpha particles, number of hits, microdosimetric spectra and related parameters for cell nuclei located at various depths in bronchial epithelium are calculated. The lineal energy spectrum is a spherical nuclear target is then converted into probabilities for cell killing, mutation and transformation by multiplying the single event chord length distribution with event specific effect probabilities per unit track length as a function of LET. These effect probabilities are finally weighted by the depth-density distributions of basal and secretory cells. The predicted transformation probability is compared with other physical indicators of lung cancer risk, such as dose, dose equivalent, biologically weighted dose, mean lineal energy, and number of alpha particle hits ...
Dr Christopher Parker, Institute of Cancer Research and Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton, UK and colleagues did a study of 64 patients with HRPC. Radium 223 was chosen because it emits alpha radiation - which has higher energy and travels less distance than the beta radiation. Thus Parker and colleagues believe that alpha radiation will have a more pronounced localised effect on tumours.. The patients were randomly assigned to two groups. In the first, 33 received external-beam radiotherapy and up to four injections of radium-223. The other group received the same radiotherapy and placebo. Levels of bone alkaline phosphatase (bone-ALP) - considered a marker for progression of HRPC - decreased by 66% in the group receiving radium-223. The length of time for patients HRPC to progress - as assessed by each prostate-specific-antigen concentration - was much longer for those receiving radium 223 (26 weeks) compared to placebo (eight weeks). The median survival time for radium-223 patients was 41% ...
Gross alpha. Alpha particles are a type of ionizing radiation ejected by the nuclei of some unstable atoms. They are typically emitted from the elements uranium, radium, plutonium and thorium. The MCLG (federally recognized public health goal) for alpha particles is ZERO, however the legal limit (MCL) is set at 15 pCi/L (picocuries per liter). The EPA instructs water systems to subtract uranium from its gross alpha readings before they ae reported to you on an annual water quality report. This searchable database includes all results where Gross Alpha was reported in excess of 3.00 pCi/L. Gross beta. Beta particles are another form of ionizing radiation. They are smaller in size than alpha particles but can penetrate deeper into the body if consumed. The EPA says, It is their excess energy, in the form of speed, that causes harm to living cells. When transferred, this energy can break chemical bonds and form ions. Some examples of the different types of elements that give off beta ...

Human exposure to high-linear energy transfer α-particles includes environmental (e.g. radon gas and its decay progeny), medical (e.g. radiopharmaceuticals) and occupational (nuclear industry) sources. The associated health risks of α-particle exposure for lung cancer are well documented however the risk estimates for leukaemia remain uncertain. To further our understanding of α-particle effects in target cells for leukaemogenesis and also to seek general markers of individual exposure to α-particles, this study assessed the transmission of chromosomal damage initially-induced in human haemopoietic stem and progenitor cells after exposure to high-LET α-particles. Cells surviving exposure were differentiated into mature T-cells by extra-thymic T-cell differentiation in vitro. Multiplex fluorescence in situ hybridisation (M-FISH) analysis of naïve T-cell populations showed the occurrence of stable (clonal) complex chromosome aberrations consistent with those that are characteristically ...
It has been shown by Mott on the basis of the wave mechanics, that in the case of collisions between identical particles the scattered particles should interfere with the projected particles travelling in the same direction. When α-particles are scattered in helium, if the scattered α-particles and projected helium nuclei of similar velocity are identical in all respects, there will be interference between the two streams of particles. For collisions in which the particles act upon each other with forces varying as the inverse square of the distance between them, the interference results in the scattering intensity varying above and below the classical value and rising to double the classical numbers at 45º. At small angles the scattering predicted by the quantum mechanics does not differ greatly from that given by the classical theory. An experiment carried out by Chadwick showed quite definitely that for sufficiently slow α-particles the amount of scattering at 45º was double that of the ...
The nuclear track detector CR-39 is used extensively for charged particle diagnosis, in particular proton spectroscopy, at inertial confinement fusion facilities. These detectors can absorb x-ray doses from the experiments in the order of 1-100 Gy, the effects of which are not accounted for in the previous detector calibrations. X-ray dose absorbed in the CR-39 has previously been shown to affect the track size of alpha particles in the detector, primarily due to a measured reduction in the material bulk etch rate [Rojas-Herrera et al., Rev. Sci. Instrum. 86, 033501 (2015)]. Similar to the previous findings for alpha particles, protons with energies in the range 0.5-9.1 MeV are shown to produce tracks that are systematically smaller as a function of the absorbed x-ray dose in the CR-39. The reduction of track size due to x-ray dose is found to diminish with time between exposure and etching if the CR-39 is stored at ambient temperature, and complete recovery is observed after two weeks. The ...
Okay, the radium stuff is just to show the luminescence in a simplified setting. Notice, he doesnt talk about putting radium into his screen, only the luminophor.. By the way, the danger from radium isnt penetrating radiation (the author is correct, alpha particles dont even penetrate the dead layer of your skin), its the fact that your bones treat radium like calcium, and lock it away for later use; alpha particles then bombard your bone marrow from one cell away. Any dust you ingest (mucus with trapped, inhaled particles usually gets swallowed) will be very unhealthy.. The salts of cobalt, cadmium and osmium produce light at different frequencies; he isnt thinking about them for radioactivity. The first two are toxic, and the third is exorbitantly expensive (pricier than platinum!), which might be the difficulty hes having. The first two arent hard to get at all: Ni-Cd batteries have metallic Cd (at least, when fully charged…), and Li-ion batteries have cobalt oxide (with varying ...
All of the naural thorium that exist is 232Th. The mass that is given for thorium is therefore more or less equal to the mass 232Th 232.0381 u. It is much the same for helium where the mass is 4.002602 u. To find M(228Ra) we need to find the Q-value. The excess energy (Q-value) is distributed as kinetic energy on the products 228Ra and alpha. The alpha particle has very little mass compared to 228Ra, and the alpha particle by conversion of momentum will receive almost all the kinetic energy: ...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate the biological effect of the alpha-particle-emitting isotope astatine-211 on the human cell line Colo-205 and to compare it with that of low-dose-rate gamma-radiation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Plastic (PMMA) rotating phantoms were constructed, allowing precise dosimetry on a cellular level for both types of radiation. Growth assays using 96-well plates were used to estimate apparent cell survival for the two types of radiation. From this, the relative biological effect (RBE) could be estimated. RESULTS: Irradiation of the cells with 211At resulted in an RBE of 25.1 +/- 6.7 at 37% survival, and 17.3 +/- 2.5 at 10% survival, when compared with low-dose-rate gamma-irradiation. The absorbed dose at 37% survival, 0.12 Gy, corresponds to 2.2 traversals of alpha-particles through the cell nuclei. For cells irradiated with gamma-radiation (1 and 2 Gy), an apparent cell survival above unity was observed up to 50 hours post-irradiation, indicating a ...
Absorbed dose is a measure of the energy deposited in a medium by ionising radiation. It is equal to the energy deposited per unit mass of medium, and so has the unit J/kg, which is given the special name gray (Gy). Note that the absorbed dose is not a good indicator of the likely biological effect. 1 Gy of alpha radiation would be much more biologically damaging than 1 Gy of photon radiation for example. Appropriate weighting factors can be applied reflecting the different relative biological effects to find the equivalent dose. The risk of stochastic effects due to radiation exposure can be quantified using the effective dose, which is a weighted average of the equivalent dose to each organ depending upon its radiosensitivity. pl:Dawka pochłonięta sl:absorbirana doza ...

Fortunately, most of the exposures we will be referring to in the study of hormesis are gamma and X-rays where Q is equal to one, allowing rads and rems to be used interchangeably. (Your radiologist, dental hygienist, and others working with X-rays will usually talk in terms of rads or millirads - but these are the same as rems and millirems, because it is the X-ray source that produces the radiation.) There is one other term with which you should have at least a vague familiarity - Linear Energy Transfer or LET. Beta, famma and X-rays are considered low LET radiation, which means they have a Q of one. High LET particles can have Qs up to 400. A typical alpha particle has a Q of four ...
131. After etching mica sheets with acid, Robert Gentry could see tiny pits where heavy, recoiling atoms had impacted after ejecting an alpha particle. He assumed those pits were made by recoiling polonium. Pit densities near isolated polonium halos were no greater than the pit densities far from halos. Therefore, he concluded that diffusion or slow movement did not transport polonium (an alpha emitter) into the halo centers. If that had happened, some polonium would have decayed as the polonium converged on those centers, so pit densities would have been greater near polonium halos. [See Robert V. Gentry, Fossil Alpha-Recoil Analysis of Certain Variant Radioactive Halos, Science, Vol. 160, 14 June 1968, pp. 1228-1230.] This led to his eventual conclusion that the hundreds of millions of polonium isotopes must have been clustered at specific points since the instant of creation.. However, Gentry overlooked the powerful positive electrical charges at certain impact points and the rapid ...

For many years scientists had noticed that in Mendeleev published periodic table was a space underneath iodine known theoretically as eka-iodine but no one could identified in nature this element. In 1940, finally, the element was detected and produced by Americans physicts D.R Corson(1914-2012), K R Mackenzie (1912-2002), E Segre (1905-1989) in California by bombarding bismuth-209 with alpha particles in a cyclotron ...
Radioactive decay[ edit ] Example of a radioactive decay chain from lead Pb to lead Pb. The final decay product, lead Pb , is stable and can no longer undergo spontaneous radioactive decay. All ordinary matter is made up of combinations of chemical elements , each with its own atomic number , indicating the number of protons in the atomic nucleus. Additionally, elements may exist in different isotopes , with each isotope of an element differing in the number of neutrons in the nucleus.. A particular isotope of a particular element is called a nuclide. Some nuclides are inherently unstable. That is, at some point in time, an atom of such a nuclide will undergo radioactive decay and spontaneously transform into a different nuclide. This transformation may be accomplished in a number of different ways, including alpha decay emission of alpha particles and beta decay electron emission, positron emission, or electron capture.. Another possibility is spontaneous fission into two or more nuclides. ...

Cell death is a crucial endpoint in radiation damage, and many theoretical models have been proposed; in this work, a mechanism-based, two-parameter model based on the link between cell death and chromosome aberrations was developed. More specifically, dicentrics, rings and large deletions were assumed to lead to clonogenic inactivation; furthermore, it was assumed that chromosome aberrations derive from µm-scale mis-rejoining of chromatin fragments, which in turn originate from dirty DNA double-strand breaks (called Cluster Lesions, or CLs). The threshold distance for chromatin fragment rejoining and the average number of CLs per Gy and per cell are the only two (semi-free) model parameters. The model, which was translated into a Monte Carlo code called BIANCA (BIophysical ANalysis of Cell death and chromosome Aberrations) simulating survival curves for different radiation types, was tested against experimental data on V79 and AG1522 cells exposed to photons, protons, alpha particles and ...

In 1931 Walther Bothe and Herbert Becker in Germany found that if the very energetic alpha particles emitted from polonium fell on certain light elements, specifically beryllium, boron, or lithium, an unusually penetrating radiation was produced. At first this radiation was thought to be gamma radiation, although it was more penetrating than any gamma rays known, and the details of experimental results were very difficult to interpret on this basis. The next important contribution was reported in 1932 by Irène Joliot-Curie and Frédéric Joliot in Paris. They showed that if this unknown radiation fell on paraffin, or any other hydrogen-containing compound, it ejected protons of very high energy. This was not in itself inconsistent with the assumed gamma ray nature of the new radiation, but detailed quantitative analysis of the data became increasingly difficult to reconcile with such a hypothesis.. In 1932, James Chadwick performed a series of experiments at the University of Manchester, ...
In a recent study, Texas A&M University researchers have described a new process to purify astatine-211, a promising radioactive isotope for targeted cancer treatment. Unlike other elaborate purification methods, their technique can extract astatine-211 from bismuth in minutes rather than hours, which can greatly reduce the time between production and delivery to the patient.. Astatine-211 is currently under evaluation as a cancer therapeutic in clinical trials. But the problem is that the supply chain for this element is very limited because only a few places worldwide can make it, said Jonathan Burns, research scientist in the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Stations Nuclear Engineering and Science Center. Texas A&M University is one of a handful of places in the world that can make astatine-211, and we have delineated a rapid astatine-211 separation process that increases the usable quantity of this isotope for research and therapeutic purposes.. The researchers added that this ...

To the best of my knowledge alpha particles are not the dangerous components in the VA Belts, rather its the high energy electrons and protons that are hazardous, yet these are relatively easy to shield against (at least to reduce to a less dangerous dosage).. Again to the best of my knowledge, Apollo Moon missions were scheduled for times when the chances of major solar events were low, forecasting these is an imperfect science but we can usually see them build up days in advance so we can do it to some extent. If there had been an warning signs before a mission it would have been delayed. You are correct in saying the spacecraft were not designed to protect the crew from a major solar eruption, the plan was to avoid them and this was successful.. By shorting exposure to radiation, we lessen its effects. That is a fact, so your wet or not wet analogy does not hold up Im afraid.. The Starfish Prime radiation belt is a bit of a red herring. It was more extreme and long-lived than anyone ...
This invention provides practical methods to make a DRAM fully compatible with existing SRAM products. This is accomplished by design and manufacture methods according to the invention, which includes a method to reduce standby power of reference voltage generators and a method to avoid the alpha particle problem using a novel error correction code (ECC) mechanism. The reference voltage generator of the present invention can adjust the values of output voltage and driving power separately following simple procedures. It has very strong driving power to maintain the reference voltage, which is necessary to support high-speed operation of memory devices of the present invention. In the mean time, its standby power can be reduced by orders of magnitudes using simple control mechanism, which is necessary to make our memory device compatible with the properties of existing SRAM products. There is no need to use feedback circuits or operation amplifiers, so the circuit is extremely stable and reliable. It is

These experiments simulate the simultaneous bombardment of unconfined 3.5 MeV alpha particles and erosion due to sputtering primarily from the charge exchange neutral (D, T) flux. The results indicate that helium induced blister formation can take place, with simultaneous sputtering, under conditions appropriate to a fusion reactor. The critical experimental parameters of helium flux and surface velocity are in excellent agreement with simple calculations that predict the conditions under which helium induced surface deformation takes place..

Atomic theory, ancient philosophical speculation that all things can be accounted for by innumerable combinations of hard, small, indivisible particles (called atoms) of various sizes but of the same basic material; or the modern scientific theory of matter according to which the chemical elements that combine to form the great variety of substances consist themselves of aggregations of similar subunits (atoms) possessing nuclear and electron substructure characteristic of each element. The ancient atomic theory was proposed in the 5th century bc by the Greek philosophers Leucippus and Democritus and was revived in the 1st century bc by the Roman philosopher and poet Lucretius. The modern atomic theory, which has undergone continuous refinement, began to flourish at the beginning of the 19th century with the work of the English chemist John Dalton. The experiments of the British physicist Ernest Rutherford in the early 20th century on the scattering of alpha particles from a thin gold foil ...

Prof. Dr. Falko Dressler, Leiter der Distributed Embedded Systems Group an der Universität Paderborn, wird zum Thema From Connected Cars to Virtual Edge Computing to Cooperative Driving referieren. Der Vortrag findet am 14.03.2019 um 16 Uhr statt.. Abstract:. We discuss the challenges and opportunities of the connected cars vision in relation to the need for distributed data management solutions ranging from the vehicle to the mobile edge and to the data centers. Vehicular networking solutions have been investigated for more than a decade but recent standardization efforts just enable a broad use of this technology to build large scale Intelligent Transportation Systems. As a novel concept, vehicle micro clouds have been proposed that bridge the gap between fully distributed vehicular networks based on short range device to device communication and 4G+ based infrastructure for centralized solutions. We also shed light on the potentials of a vehicular cloud based on parked vehicles as a ...
