  • Suitability of gafchromic EBT2 films for dosimetry of low gamma-rays
    • Authors: E.M. Antar, S.M. Gafar, M. El-Ahdal
      Pages: 317 - 326
      Abstract: Radiochromic film has become an important tool to assess complex dose distributions. As a self-developing film, EBT2 is a perfect fit for the processor-less environment. Radiation dosimeters based on EBT2 containing active layer, marker dye (coded) and stabiliser have been prepared. EBT2 films undergo radiation when subjected to gamma rays inducing change in the absorption spectra in the film which converts from faint green to deep green peaking at 631 nm, and upon irradiation the new developed peak and their amplitudes with the original peak increase with the increase of absorbed dose. The useful dose range of this film is 1 cGy to 15 Gy. So it can be used as a dosimeter in the field of blood irradiation and radiotherapy. The effect of relative humidity during irradiation on the response of films as well as pre- and post-irradiation stability at different storage conditions was described.

  • Effect of buthionine sulphoximine, cysteine and dithitreitol in cells
           exposed to low doses of radiation
    • Authors: J.C. De Luca, D.M. López-Larraza
      Pages: 327 - 334
      Abstract: The goal of this study is to determine whether cysteimine, buthionine sulphoximide and dithitreitol protect CHO K1 cells against chromosomal aberrations induced by low doses of X-radiation, as well as whether radiation protection is related to physical properties of those thiols. Experimental design included four different treatments: (a) control, (b) cells treated with 5 mM of buthionine sulphoximide as well as cysteine and dithitreitol, (c) cells treated with 100 mGy of X-rays and (d) cells treated with 5 mM of each thiol and 100 mGy X-rays. In combined treatment, all chemical compounds were added 30 min before irradiation and remained until cell sacrifice (18 h). None of the three compounds studied showed a radioprotector effect. These results are consistent with the electrical charges and chemical structure of the three thiols.

  • Effect of the altitude on the concentration and exhalation rate of radon
    • Authors: J.C. De Luca, D.M. López-Larraza
      Pages: 335 - 343
      Abstract: High altitude is characterised by hypoxic and hypobaric conditions. Exposure to high altitude is known to affect human physiology, specially blood oxygen tension and saturation. Also, oxygen, carbon dioxide and vacuum are known to affect some polymers used in radon detection. In the present work alpha track detector (CR-39 plastic) was used to assess the radon exhalation rates and effective radium in rock, soil, plants (wild herbs) and water samples measured at low altitude with normal oxygen and atmospheric pressure and compared with the corresponding measurements in hypoxic and hypobaric conditions at high altitude (2412 m above sea level). The data indicated that high-altitude conditions slightly affect the measurements of the radon concentration and its exhalation rate.

  • Assessment of γ-radiation levels and associated dose rates from
           surface soils in the eastern part of Botswana
    • Authors: Alfred Sello Likuku, Naregundi Karunakara, Gothatamang Patrick Nthoiwa
      Pages: 344 - 354
      Abstract: This paper reports the γ-radiation levels of the naturally occurring <SUP align="right">40</SUP>K, <SUP align="right">210</SUP>Pb, <SUP align="right">232</SUP>Th and <SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra and the anthropogenic <SUP align="right">137</SUP>Cs in the eastern part of Botswana so as to assess their possible dose impact to the members of the public in the area. The radium equivalent activity was (175±24) Bq/kg, and thus below the allowed maximum value of 370 Bq/kg. The total absorbed rate ranged from 24.12 nGy/h to 215.44 nGy/h with the mean of (81.36±10.58) nGy/h. The outdoor annual effective dose ranged from 0.030 mSv/y to 0.264 mSv/y with an average value of (0.10±0.01) mSv/y. The obtained values are comparable with world-wide averages. Results from this study can be used to serve as baseline data for the study area, which can also be used as reference information to assess any changes in radioactivity background possibly due to the artificial influences.

  • Assessment of indoor radon levels and associated hazards: effects of
           floor levels in residential buildings
    • Authors: Alfred Sello Likuku, Naregundi Karunakara, Gothatamang Patrick Nthoiwa
      Pages: 355 - 369
      Abstract: The indoor radon concentrations in rooms of different floors in Irbid city in Jordan ranged from 8 to 50 Bq m<SUP align="right">−3</SUP> with an annual mean of 23 Bqm<SUP align="right">−3</SUP>, which is less than the recommended action level. The average values of indoor radon concentrations in all investigated dwellings for basement floor, first floor, second floor, third floor and fourth floor were 36.13, 27.85, 21.24, 15.83 and 12.86 Bq m<SUP align="right">−3</SUP>, respectively. The average annual effective dose is 0.318 mSv y<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> which is within the safe limits. Risk of lung cancer from the chronic exposure of the inhaled radon progeny may cause lung cancer of 6 cases per year per million person in Irbid city. Despite that the lung cancer, which is attributed to radon inhalation, forms about 5.7% of the total lung cancers, it is still a small ratio compared to risk of lung cancer caused by cigarette smoking and other factors which is 94.3%.

  • Mechanistic model of the cells irradiation using the stochastic
           biophysical input
    • Authors: Alfred Sello Likuku, Naregundi Karunakara, Gothatamang Patrick Nthoiwa
      Pages: 370 - 395
      Abstract: In this paper a full description of the mechanistic model of the cells irradiation is presented. The model is based on the computational Quasi-Markov Chain Monte Carlo method with a stochastic tree of probabilities and using the biophysical input. The biophysics of the cells is described by the probabilities and probability distributions provided as an input. Many biophysical aspects are implemented into the model, i.e. the adaptive response effect or the bystander effect. It results in the sigmoidal relationships for carcinogenic risk as a function of the irradiation. The methodology used makes the model universal and practical for the simulations of general processes. However, the presented theoretical model does not describe the real cells and tissues. Also the exposure geometry, type of radiation as well as microdosimetry are not taken into account in this model. The model is focused mainly on the creation of general and maximal wide mathematical description of irradiated hypothetical cells treated as complex physical systems.

  • Expression of IFNg and TGFb1 genes can distinguish radiation workers from
           the normal population
    • Authors: Reza Fardid, Mohammad Taghi Bahreyni-Toossi, Abdolrahim Rezaee, Ariane Sadr-nabavi, Houshang Rafatpanah
      Pages: 396 - 408
      Abstract: Ionising radiation can cause different forms of DNA damage in living cells. Changes in biomarkers due to exposure to ionising radiation can be an appropriate tool for the immediate recognition of individuals exposed to radiation after a radiological accident or nuclear disaster. QPCR technique, as an approved method, was used for analysing the expression levels of sensitive genes following radiation exposure. Gene expression studies were performed on a group of 36 radiation workers and 36 matched-normal people without a history of radiation exposure. Mean gene expression values for control and irradiated groups were compared. There was significant difference between the mean gene expression of IFNg (p < 0.05), also significant difference was observed between the gene expression of TGFb1 (p < 0.05) in normal and irradiated groups. The logistic regression model is able to correctly identify 72.2% of irradiated samples (sensitivity) and 80.6% of normal samples (specificity).
