Increase of regional total cancer incidence in north Sweden due to the Chernobyl accident? (1/117)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Is there any epidemiologically visible influence on the cancer incidence after the Chernobyl fallout in Sweden? DESIGN: A cohort study was focused on the fallout of caesium-137 in relation to cancer incidence 1988-1996. SETTING: In northern Sweden, affected by the Chernobyl accident in 1986, 450 parishes were categorised by caesium-137 deposition: < 3 (reference), 3-29, 30-39, 40-59, 60-79, and 80-120 kiloBecquerel/m(2). PARTICIPANTS: All people 0-60 years living in these parishes in 1986 to 1987 were identified and enrolled in a cohort of 1 143 182 persons. In the follow up 22 409 incident cancer cases were retrieved in 1988-1996. A further analysis focused on the secular trend. MAIN RESULTS: Taking age and population density as confounding factors, and lung cancer incidence in 1988-1996 and total cancer incidence in 1986-1987 by municipality as proxy confounders for smoking and time trends, respectively, the adjusted relative risks for the deposition categories were 1.00 (reference < 3 kiloBecquerel/m(2)), 1.05, 1.03, 1.08, 1.10, and 1.21. The excess relative risk was 0.11 per 100 kiloBecquerel/m(2) (95% CI 0.03 to 0.20). Considering the secular trend, directly age standardised cancer incidence rate differences per 100 000 person years between 1988 to 1996 and the reference period 1986-1987, were 30.3 (indicating a time trend in the reference category), 36.8, 42.0, 45.8, 50.1, and 56.4. No clear excess occurred for leukaemia or thyroid cancer. CONCLUSIONS: Unless attributable to chance or remaining uncontrolled confounding, a slight exposure related increase in total cancer incidence has occurred in northern Sweden after the Chernobyl accident.  (+info)

Thyroid disease in northern Italian children born around the time of the Chernobyl nuclear accident. (2/117)

BACKGROUND: The Chernobyl nuclear accident of 1986 caused a dramatic increase in the incidence of thyroid cancers in exposed children in Belarus. Airborne radioactivity from the reactor spread over northern Italy, where rainout gave rise to low levels of radioactivity at ground level. PATIENTS AND METHODS: As the latency between exposure to ionising radiation and development of thyroid cancer is thought to be about 10 years, in 1996/1997 all children born in 1985 and 1986 and attending school in an area of Milan, Italy were examined for thyroid nodules. A total of 3949 children were examined by two physicians blinded to the examination and diagnosis of the other. The children were to be reassessed in 2001/2002. RESULTS: In total, 1% had palpable nodules. The nodule diagnoses were: Hurtle cell adenoma (one), thyroglossal duct cyst (one), thyroid cyst (four) and thyroiditis (four). The prevalence of thyroid disease in the cohort was indistinguishable from that of populations not exposed to radioactive pollution. Only 10 children re-presented for examination 5 years later; all were negative. The direct costs of the study were estimated at 21,200 Euros. CONCLUSION: The high cost of the study in relation to reassuring lack of increase in thyroid nodule prevalence suggests that further studies are not justified.  (+info)

National cancer registry to assess trends after the Chernobyl accident. (3/117)

The National Cancer Registry has been operational in the Republic of Belarus since 1973: information on all new cases of malignant tumours is registered. The data are kept in a computer database and used for assessing the oncological status of the population, and for epidemiological studies. We compared findings before the Chernobyl accident of April 26, 1986 (Chernobyl) and findings between 1990 and 2000. The overall comparison on the changes in the incidence of cancer morbidity in Belarus is presented. The increase is statistically significant for all regions, but significantly greater in the most chronically radiation-contaminated region: the Gomel oblast. The paper presents a comparative analysis of the incidence of cancer morbidity in the population of two regions of Belarus, selected for the greatest difference in their radioactive contamination following Chernobyl. The highest contamination occurred in the Gomel region and is mainly due to high levels of radiocaesium (137Cs) in the soil and in the alimentary chain, especially in rural areas. A relatively low radioactive fallout was noticed in the Vitebsk region, considered here as the "control" area. We compare the situation before and after Chernobyl in the two regions. The overall cancer morbidity rate in all organs including colon, urinary bladder and thyroid, was significantly higher in the Gomel region than in Vitebsk. In populations living in two areas with high 137Cs contamination (oblast of Gomel and Mogilev), the peak incidence rates of breast cancer were already reached between the ages of 45-49 years, 15 years earlier than in the Vitebsk region. Belarussian "liquidators" who were mobilised to clean up the most contaminated territory and build the sarcophagus around the destroyed atomic plant, received the highest radiation doses. They had a significant excess of incidence of cancers of colon, urinary bladder, and thyroid gland, when compared with a corresponding adult population of the Vitebsk region. The Relative Risk (RR) of lung cancer among "liquidators" in 1997-2000 significantly exceeded 1, while in the control population it remained stable.  (+info)

Longitudinal neurocognitive assessments of Ukrainians exposed to ionizing radiation after the Chernobyl nuclear accident. (4/117)

A 4-year longitudinal study of the cognitive effects of the Chernobyl nuclear accident was conducted from 1995 to 1998. The controls were healthy Ukrainians residing several hundred kilometers away from Chernobyl. The exposed groups included Eliminators, Forestry workers and Agricultural workers living within 150 km of Chernobyl. Accuracy and efficiency of cognitive performance were assessed using ANAMUKR, a specialized subset of the Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics (ANAM) battery of tests. Analyses of variance, followed by appropriate pairwise comparisons, indicated that the 4-year averaged levels of performance of the exposure groups (especially the Eliminators) were significantly lower than those of the controls on most measures; further, analyses of performance across time revealed significant declines in accuracy and efficiency, as well as psychomotor slowing, for all exposed groups over the 4-year period. These findings strongly indicate impairment of brain function resulting from both acute and chronic exposure to ionizing radiation.  (+info)

A new mechanism of BRAF activation in human thyroid papillary carcinomas. (5/117)

In this issue of the JCI, Ciampi et al. report the identification of a novel oncogene in patients affected by radiation-associated thyroid papillary carcinomas. This oncogene derives from a paracentric inversion of the long arm of chromosome 7, which results in an in-frame fusion of the N-terminus of the A-kinase anchor protein 9 (AKAP9) gene with the C-terminal catalytic domain (exons 9-18) of the serine-threonine kinase BRAF. The resulting AKAP9-BRAF fusion protein shows constitutive kinase activity, and it is able to transmit mitogenic signals to the MAPK pathways and to promote malignant transformation of NIH3T3 cells.  (+info)

Oncogenic AKAP9-BRAF fusion is a novel mechanism of MAPK pathway activation in thyroid cancer. (6/117)

Genes crucial for cancer development can be mutated via various mechanisms, which may reflect the nature of the mutagen. In thyroid papillary carcinomas, mutations of genes coding for effectors along the MAPK pathway are central for transformation. BRAF point mutation is most common in sporadic tumors. By contrast, radiation-induced tumors are associated with paracentric inversions activating the receptor tyrosine kinases RET and NTRK1. We report here a rearrangement of BRAF via paracentric inversion of chromosome 7q resulting in an in-frame fusion between exons 1-8 of the AKAP9 gene and exons 9-18 of BRAF. The fusion protein contains the protein kinase domain and lacks the autoinhibitory N-terminal portion of BRAF. It has elevated kinase activity and transforms NIH3T3 cells, which provides evidence, for the first time to our knowledge, of in vivo activation of an intracellular effector along the MAPK pathway by recombination. The AKAP9-BRAF fusion was preferentially found in radiation-induced papillary carcinomas developing after a short latency, whereas BRAF point mutations were absent in this group. These data indicate that in thyroid cancer, radiation activates components of the MAPK pathway primarily through chromosomal paracentric inversions, whereas in sporadic forms of the disease, effectors along the same pathway are activated predominantly by point mutations.  (+info)

Relationship between caesium (137Cs) load, cardiovascular symptoms, and source of food in 'Chernobyl' children -- preliminary observations after intake of oral apple pectin. (7/117)

Seventeen years after the nuclear power accident at Chernobyl, most of the radio-contamination among the population of Southern Belarus is caused by incorporation of long-lived radioisotopes. The varying levels of 137Cs observed among children in this area are explained by the source of their food, especially by the consumption of contaminated milk produced privately. We stratified children from rural areas of Belarus (caesium [137Cs] contamination >5 Ci/km(2)) by their 137Cs loads into three distinct groups (group 1, <5 Bq/kg body weight [BW]; group 2, 38.4 +/- 2.4 Bq/kg BW; group 3, 122 +/- 18.5 Bq/kg BW). We determined the relationship between the 137Cs load and the children's main source of food and recorded their cardiovascular symptoms. Cardiovascular symptoms, ECG alterations, and arterial hypertension were significantly more frequent in children with high 137Cs burden than in children with very low 137Cs burden. Children with moderate and high 137Cs loads (groups 2 and 3) received apple pectin, a food additive, for 16 days. Apple pectin significantly decreased 137Cs loads in these groups (39% and 28%, respectively). ECG alterations improved, while cardiovascular symptoms and hypertension did not change in any group.  (+info)

Sensitivity analysis for trend tests: application to the risk of radiation exposure. (8/117)

Trend tests are used to assess the relationship between multiple level treatment X and binary response R. In observational studies, however, there may be a confounder U that is associated with treatment X and causally related to response R. When the data for the confounder U are not observed, an approach for assessing the sensitivity of test results to U is provided. Its use is illustrated by examining data from a study of mutation rate after the Chernobyl accident.  (+info)

Several hundred thousand individuals, called cleanup workers or liquidators, who took part in decontamination and recovery activities between 1986 and 1990 within the 30-km zone around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine, were mainly exposed to external irradiation. However, those who were involved in cleanup activities during the 10-day period of atmospheric releases also received doses to the thyroid gland due to internal irradiation resulting essentially from inhalation of 131I. The paper presents the methodology and results of the calculation of individual thyroid doses for cleanup workers. The model that was used considers several factors, including the ground-level outdoor air concentrations of 131I at the locations of residence and work of the cleanup workers, the reduction of 131I activity in inhaled air associated with indoor occupancy, the time spent indoors, the breathing rate, which depends on the type of physical activity, and the possible intake of potassium iodine ...
As blood carries chemicals through the body, it can go through bone marrow, which is the basis for production of blood cells. The liver also filters toxins.. DAndreas study with colleague G. Kesava Reddy documented a wide range of abnormal values for enzymes in the blood of 117 former cleanup workers, compared to a control group of 130 patients not involved in sopping up the spill.. The workers had decreased levels of blood-clotting platelets, as well as lower numbers for blood urea nitrogen and creatinine, which are indicators of kidney health.. The amount of three liver enzymes - alkaline phosphatase, aspartate transaminase and alanine transaminase - in the cleanup workers blood also was higher than the non-exposed patients, a warning sign of liver dysfunction and damage.. DAndrea said various studies show that patients with damaged bone marrow have higher incidence of possible leukemias, lymphoma and myelomas, and that liver damage increases risk of liver, pancreas and gallbladder ...

During the 19th and early 20th century, there was no normative Belarusian grammar. Authors wrote as they saw fit, usually representing the particularities of different Belarusian dialects. The scientific groundwork for the introduction of a truly scientific and modern grammar of the Belarusian language was laid down by the linguist Yefim Karskiy.. By the early 1910s, the continuing lack of a codified Belarusian grammar was becoming intolerably obstructive in the opinion of uniformitarian prescriptivists. Then Russian academician Shakhmatov, chair of the Russian language and literature department of St. Petersburg University, approached the board of the Belarusian newspaper Naša niva with a proposal that a Belarusian linguist be trained under his supervision in order to be able to create documentation of the grammar. Initially, the famous Belarusian poet Maksim Bahdanovich was to be entrusted with this work. However, Bahdanovichs poor health (tuberculosis) precluded his living in the climate of ...

Tobacco Smoke Aggressiveness John Howard, M.D., Chief, California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, testified on TTS in a 20 Oct 1994 hearing before the California Assembly Committee on Labor and Employment that "tobacco smoke travels from its point of generation in a building to all other areas of the building. It has been shown to move through light fixtures, through ceiling crawl spaces, and into and out of doorways." This aggressive activity of TTS violates the right to "fresh and pure air," as the inherent dangerous nature and action of TTS constitutes it as "ultrahazardous activity." Tobacco Radioactivity Tobacco radioactivity is high "the radiation dose from radium and polonium found naturally in tobacco can be a thousand times more than that from the caesium 137 taken up by the leaves from the Chernobyl nuclear accident," says the article "Tobaccos radiation dose far higher than leaves at Chernobyl" ( news service, 2 June 2007).

Background and Aims:. The OMNI-Net Ukrainian birth defects program was established in 1998 to determine birth defects prevalence and to promote care, early intervention and prevention programs.. Methods:. Birth defects population surveillance systems applying international standards and quality control methods were established in three regions of Ukraine (Rivne, Volyn and Khmelnytsky - the first 2 are northwestern provinces and the third adjoins them from the south). Nearly half of northern Rivne and Volyn are historically known as Polissia, a boggy, forested region heavily impacted by Chornobyl ionizing radiation.. Results:. The 2000-2005 NTD prevalence ranged from 21 to 22 per 10,000 live births. Prevalence in Polissia, compared to non-Polissia regions, was 28 and 20 respectively (prevalence in Khmelnytsky was also 20). In addition, 6 instances of conjoined twinning were noted in the Rivne oblast (~ 14,000 live births per year - none were detected in Volyn or Khmelnytsky). The conjoined twins ...

Chemical pollutants that make their way into animals systems have been shown to cause direct changes to genetic diversity. For example, one study found exposure to heavy metals from smelter plants in Finland and Russia as well as radioactive isotopes from a nuclear processing plant in Russia to cause an increase in genetic diversity for wild populations of the great tit and an opposing decrease in populations of the pied flycatcher. Air pollution falling into the environment from steel mills in Hamilton, Ontario, has been linked to an increase in the rate of genetic mutations in the offspring of both gulls and mice. These results are not localized. Similar studies after the Chernobyl nuclear accident reported increased mutation rates in bird and rodent populations. Heavy metals have been linked to DNA damage in bird and mammal populations, which have shown elevated numbers of gene mutations in industrial areas. There has been no record of physical, behavior or survival rate changes in these ...
by Jan Maksymiuk The EU Council on 13 July formally approved a decision to ban EU visas for Belarusian government officials.

The decision was communicated to the Belarusian Foreign Ministry by charges daffaires of five EU states-- France, Germany, Greece, Italy, and the U.K.- -on 10 July, the fourth anniversary of Lukashenkas presidency. A Russian newspaper reported that Foreign Minister Ivan Antanovich was shocked to receive such a note and tried to dismiss it on the pretext that it was poorly prepared--the names of some officials were misspelled or their official positions incorrectly identified. Four days later, the US State Department followed suit, imposing similar restrictions on Belarusian senior officials wanting to travel to the U.S., except ...

The nodules on the thyroid necessitated a trip to a specialist. "And why are you here to see me?" he asked. "I have nodules on my thyroid," I replied. He chuckled and said, "Who doesnt?", which made me feel that getting up at 5:45 to get to a 7:40 appointment with him only to be faced with filling out 8 pages of medical history, information that is available in my online profile to which he has access, worthless. I came really close to saying, "Why am I here then?" But he quickly added that, in my case, the nodules were at or over 2 centimeter in diameter which is grounds for doing a biopsy just to be sure. "95% of these are benign and of the 5% that arent, the cure rate on thyroid cancer is 97%," he said. "Im willing to bet your nodules are benign but we should look at them." Again, the word, "Why?" entered my mind. I realize, partially, that it is probably in my best interest to have this done but he only takes appointments from 8:30 to 1:30 and I refuse to miss work for this. Ill get it ...

The risk of developing leukemia is significantly increased for the 110,654 workers who helped clean up after the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident. The results of this 20-year study may help scientists to better define the cancer risk associated with low doses of radiation from medical diagnostic radiation procedures.
Part of the National Response Team Program, the International Response Team (IRT) is the result of an agreement between ATF and the U.S. Department of States Diplomatic Security Service (DSS). The agreement originally allowed ATF to assist in the investigation of select fire and post blast scenes where the DSS has investigative responsibility.. Now, foreign governments may request that ATF provide technical/forensic assistance and oversight in arson and explosives investigations. The Department of State, after receiving authorization from the U.S. ambassador for the affected country, relays such requests for assistance to ATF.. The IRT is comprised of four supervisory special agents, a cadre of fire origin-and-cause specialists, and explosives specialists having post blast expertise. These individuals are supplemented by a number of explosives technology experts and forensic chemists.. The IRT has traveled abroad to foreign countries to assist in investigating large-vehicle bombings; providing ...

A defence against environmental threats. The security scenario has undergone considerable change in a relatively short period of time. It is less than 10 years since the Iron Curtain divided a nuclear Europe in half. Europe is now uniting as the European Union enlarges to include former Warsaw Pact countries. The Cold War has ended and a major war in Europe would now seem impossible. At the same time new threats are emerging. Massive displacement of refugees, ethnic conflicts, terrorism and international crime are just some examples of current threats to security. Another serious threat is posed by natural disasters and environmental problems caused by nature itself and the human races methods of exploiting the earths resources.. A number of environmental catastrophes have brought the human race new problems, the latest of these being the dam disaster in Spain. The landslides in Italy, the devastation wrought by El Niño and the Chernobyl nuclear accident are other contemporary examples of the ...

Historically, one people lives in Russia and Ukraine, which is now divided, Russian Security Council secretary Nikolai Patrushev said.. "The Ukrainians are now being convinced that the Russians are their deep-rooted enemies. In Ukraine like in fascist Germany, a far right nationalist ideology is being reinforced. The young people are educated through textbooks saying that the whole history of Ukraine is a history of the fight for independence from Russia," Patrushev said.. "The US and the European Union staged a state coup in Ukraine, which brought to power forces conducting anti-national and anti-Russian policy. Kiev continues to escalate tensions by disrupting bilateral trade and economic ties, halting flights to Russia, cutting energy supplies to Crimea and undermining humanitarian ties between two people, placing a stake on a military solution to the intrastate contradictions," he noted.. "The vector of development chosen by Kiev has put Ukraine under external control. The country is losing ...

There was no personal or family history of goiter or other thyroid disease. 1
This article is about the current situation of Health in Ukraine. Ukraine is considered to be in a demographic crisis due to its high death rate and a low birth rate. The current Ukrainian birth rate is 11 births/1,000 population, and the death rate is 16.3 deaths/1,000 population. A factor contributing to the relatively high death is a high mortality rate among working-age males from preventable causes such as alcohol poisoning and smoking. In 2008, the countrys population was one of the fastest declining in the world at -5% growth. The UN warned that Ukraines population could fall by as much as 10 million by 2050 if trends did not improve. The crumbling poorly financed healthcare system and rumours that children have fallen ill or even died after being immunised have led to a very poor vaccination rate. In August 2016, 30% of children in Ukraine were fully immunized against measles, 10%, against hepatitis B, and 3% of against diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus. At the time Ukraine had the ...

April 25 - Dawn Observing Ceres; 3rd Reaction Wheel Malfunctions NASAs Dawn spacecraft is preparing to observe Ceres on April 29 from an "opposition" position, directly between the dwarf planets mysterious Occator Crater and the sun. This unique geometry may yield new insights about the bright material in the center of the crater. The April Dawn Journal describes the plan.. While preparing for this observation, one of Dawns two remaining reaction wheels stopped functioning on April 23. By electrically changing the speed at which these gyroscope-like devices spin, Dawn controls its orientation in the zero-gravity, frictionless conditions of space. The team discovered the situation during a scheduled communications session on April 24, diagnosed the problem, and returned the spacecraft to its standard flight configuration, still with hydrazine control, on April 25. The failure occurred after Dawn completed its five-hour segment of ion thrusting on April 22 to adjust its orbit, but before the ...
SAMANTHA POWER ( United States) said the hard-negotiated joint declaration issued on 17 April had laid out concrete steps toward de-escalating the situation in Ukraine, and had offered a moment of hope. Since then, Ukraine authorities had been faithfully fulfilling their commitments. The same could not be said of the Russian Federation. Pro-Russian groups in the streets of Donetsk and other cities were sharply undermining law and order. Those were not peaceful protests, but well-orchestrated campaigns. Forty people had been taken hostage by pro-Russian groups, including OSCE inspectors. Her country joined other responsible Governments in condemning those acts, calling for the immediate and unconditional release of those detained. Since 17 April, Ukraine admirably implemented the agreement, voluntarily offering truce over the Easter holidays, publicly committing itself to far-reaching constitutional reform, and promising to protect Russian-speaking populations. It would also grant amnesty to ...

Artificial radionuclides enter the Mediterranean Sea mainly through atmospheric deposition following nuclear weapons tests and the Chernobyl accident, but also through the river discharge of nuclear facility effluents. Previous studies of artificial radionuclides impact of the Mediterranean Sea have focussed on shallow, coastal sediments. However, deep sea sediments have the potential to store and accumulate pollutants, including artificial radionuclides. Deep sea marine sediment cores were collected from Mediterranean Sea abyssal plains (depth , 2000 m) and analysed for 239,240Pu and 137Cs to elucidate the concentrations, inventories and sources of these radionuclides in the deepest areas of the Mediterranean. The activity - depth profiles of 210Pb, together with 14C dating, indicate that sediment mixing redistributes the artificial radionuclides within the first 2.5 cm of the sedimentary column. The excess 210Pb inventory was used to normalize 239,240Pu and 137Cs inventories for variable ...
Interior surface deposition effects of vaporized radioactive aerosols are important in understanding their behavior in accident conditions such as the Japanese nuclear laboratory accident in 1999 and the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident in 1986, where entire communities had to be abandoned because of surface contamination, and the hopefully unlikelihood of a terrorist dirty nuclear bomb attack. Airborne radon progeny offers an opportunity to study radioisotope surface deposition. A significant annual lung cancer rate is also attributed to airborne radon progeny in the interior domestic environment. Surface deposition rates influence the airborne progeny levels. Here, we report extensive 218Po deposition rates over typical air change rates (ACHs) from 0.02 to 1.0 h-1 for interior furnishings surfaces in a 0.283-m3 test chamber to supplement earlier reported deposition rates for interior wall, ceiling, and floor surfaces. In analyzing the deposition results from the different materials, it ...
The potential health threat posed by endocrine-disrupting chemicals has come to the forefront of environmental health in previous years and nowadays represents a major concern among scientific, regulatory and public communities. Different groups of environmental chemicals appear to have thyroid-disrupting properties. The lifelong exposure to these chemicals raises concerns about their deleterious effects on human health, having in mind that even subtle changes in the individual thyroid homeostasis during the life cycle may have significant adverse effects. This experimental study was aimed to assess effects of repeated relatively low doses (corresponding low to high environmental human exposures) of toxic metal cadmium (Cd), and persistent organic pollutants: polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and polybrominated diphenyl ether (BDE 209) on thyroid homeostasis in adult animals. These chemicals were chosen based on their persistency, high toxicity and ubiquitous presence in environment. Rats were ...
We estimate the contamination risks from the atmospheric dispersion of radionuclides released by severe nuclear power plant accidents using the ECHAM/Modular Earth Submodel System (MESSy) atmospheric chemistry (EMAC) atmospheric chemistry-general circulation model at high resolution (50 km). We present an overview of global risks and also a case study of nuclear power plants that are currently under construction, planned and proposed in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East, a region prone to earthquakes. We implemented continuous emissions from each location, making the simplifying assumption that all potential accidents release the same amount of radioactivity. We simulated atmospheric transport and decay, focusing on 137Cs and 131I as proxies for particulate and gaseous radionuclides, respectively. We present risk maps for potential surface layer concentrations, deposition and doses to humans from the inhalation exposure of 131I. The estimated risks exhibit seasonal variability, with the highest
Finland has four nuclear reactors units in two power plants. The first unit started operation in 1977 and in the early 1980s all four units were in use. During the last few years the aging management of the Nuclear Power Plants (NPP) concrete structures has grown an important issue because the existing structures are reaching the end of their licensed operating lifetime (about 40 years). Therefore the nuclear power companies are developing aging management systems to avoid premature degradation of NPP facilities and to be able to extend their operating lifetime. This paper is about the development of a computerized ageing management system for the nuclear power plants concrete structures. The computerized ageing management system is built upon central database and implementation applications. It will assist the personnel of power companies to implement the aging management activities at different phases of the lifetime of a power plant. It will provide systematic methods for planning, ...
