  • Determination of natural radionuclides in abattoir wastes and sediments
           from rivers and streams around selected abattoirs in Southwest Nigeria
    • Authors: Nnamdi N. Jibiri, Omoniyi M. Isinkaye, Oluwafemi A. Ilori, Akindayo A. Sowunmi
      Pages: 93 - 106
      Abstract: The concentrations of natural radionuclides in abattoir wastes and sediments of streams and rivers around selected abattoirs in Southwestern Nigeria have been measured using gamma-ray spectrometry. In abattoir wastes, the activity concentrations obtained in cow-dung samples are higher than those obtained in blood and bone ash samples. For sediment, the mean activity concentration of <SUP align="right">40</SUP>K, <SUP align="right">238</SUP>U and <SUP align="right">232</SUP>Th obtained is 290.04 ± 156.84, 22.02 ± 4.14 and 50.42 ± 18.90 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>, respectively. The absorbed gamma-indoor dose rates and other radiological health indices were calculated in order to assess the radiological hazards associated with the use of the sediments in construction of dwellings. The values obtained were less than the recommended safe and criterion limits by UNSCEAR. It is sufficient to say therefore that sediments from the respective rivers and streams around the abattoir sites are safe and can be used for construction of buildings without undue radiological health concerns.

  • 222Rn in public water supply and risk estimate of cancer in the
           metropolitan area from Recife, Brazil
    • Authors: C.M. Silva, C.E.O. Costa Júnior
      Pages: 107 - 115
      Abstract: The metropolitan area of Recife is characterised by high population density. Owing to the lack of radiometric assessments in public water supply, this work was designed to determine <SUP align="right">222</SUP>Rn concentration in public water supply samples of the metropolitan area from Recife with high natural radiation in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil. To determine <SUP align="right">222</SUP>Rn concentrations the technique of liquid scintillation was employed. The samples showed concentrations ranging from 5 Bq l<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> to 84 Bq l<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>. In this report, the results and the radiation-induced health effects are presented as well as discussed.

  • Lack of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition induction in two bronchial
           epithelial cell lines after alpha and gamma irradiation

         This is an Open Access Article Open Access Article

    • Authors: Anna Acheva, Elina Eklund, Elina Lemola, Teemu Siiskonen, Virpi Launonen, Meerit Kämäräinen
      Pages: 116 - 133
      Abstract: The induction of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in human lung epithelial cell lines was investigated after α-particle and γ-radiation exposures. We applied TGF-β treatment of cells as positive EMT-controls and tested in parallel if radiation has a potentiating effect on the EMT induction. BEAS-2B and HBEC-3KT cells were irradiated with 5.4 MeV α-particles or γ-rays (<SUP align="right">60</SUP>Co, 1.13-1.15 Gy/min) with or without of TGF-β. The cells were harvested three days post treatment and the EMT markers vimentin, fibronectin and E-cadherin were analysed by immunofluorescence staining and Western blotting. The TGF-β treatment-induced EMT in both cell lines in the applied concentrations. We could not prove any clear EMT induction with low or moderate doses of α-particles and γ-rays. No significant additive effect with radiation and TGF-β was observed. We suggest that there might be a different mechanism induced by radiation in bronchial cells after radon and medical exposures that does not involve direct EMT changes.

      Pages: 134 - 142
      Abstract: Low-level gamma ray spectroscopy with a NaI (TI) gamma radiation detector was used for the measurement of activity concentrations of radionuclides <SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra, <SUP align="right">232</SUP>Th and <SUP align="right">40</SUP>K. Activity concentrations of radium were found to vary from 12 to 39 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>, thorium ranged from 15 to 49 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> whereas <SUP align="right">40</SUP>K ranged from 157 to 460 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>. Radium equivalent activity has been found to vary from 50.8 to 118 Bq kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> and absorbed gamma dose rates varied from 24 to 53.2 nGy h<SUP align="right">−1</SUP> whereas corresponding outdoor annual effective dose found to vary from 0.029 to 0.065 mSv y<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>. The calculated values of H<SUB align="right">ex and H<SUB align="right">in range from 0.13 to 0.31 and 0.16 to 0.41 respectively whereas values of gamma and alpha index vary from 0.19 to 0.42 and 0.06 to 0.19 respectively. The values of hazard index are under the action limit.

  • The human cancer in high natural background radiation areas
    • Authors: Ludwik DobrzyÅ„ski, Krzysztof W. Fornalski, Ludwig E. Feinendegen
      Pages: 143 - 154
      Abstract: The studies of health effects in human populations living in places with high levels of natural background radiation are of crucial importance for understanding the impact of low doses of ionising radiation. The paper reviews some exemplary literature that addresses the likelihood of the radiation-induced cancer in aforementioned regions. It is shown that using Bayesian analysis one can arrive at an essentially different conclusion concerning dose-effect dependence from the one which could be guessed from first glance. The general conclusion is that cancers do not correlate with elevated radiation in regions with high natural background radiation.

  • Activity concentration and annual effective ingestion dose assessment due
           to natural radionuclides present in cereal samples consumed by inhabitants

      Pages: 155 - 168
      Abstract: In the present study, activity concentration and annual effective ingestion dose assessment was carried out in cereal samples using gamma spectrometry. In the studied samples the activity of <SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra, <SUP align="right">238</SUP>U, <SUP align="right">232</SUP>Th, and <SUP align="right">40</SUP>K varied from 10.25±0.94 Bq/kg to 29.13±0.69 Bq/kg, 7.04±0.13 Bq/kg to 20.08±1.32 Bq/kg, 22.20±2.46 Bq/kg to 58.21±1.15 Bq/kg and 1158.4±26.05Bq/kg to 1962.2±18.17 Bq/kg with an average value of 20.06±4.82 Bq/kg, 13.08±1.31 Bq/kg, 41.53±3.77 Bq/kg, and 1639±75.55 Bq/kg respectively. The average value of annual effective ingestion dose from ingested food was 0.62±0.08 mSv/y, 0.07±0.006 mSv/y, 1.20±0.11 mSv/y, and 1.28±0.06 mSv/y from <SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra, <SUP align="right">238</SUP>U, <SUP align="right">232</SUP>Th, and <SUP align="right">40</SUP>K, respectively. The average value of total ingestion dose and cancer risk was found to be 3.18±0.14 mSv/y and (79.5±3.55) × 10<SUP align="right">−4</SUP> respectively.

  • Effect of high background natural radioactivity on human mitochondrial DNA
           in Ramsar, the north of Iran
    • Authors: Reza Vazifehmand, Sassan Saber, Abbas Takavr, Dhuha Saeed Ali, Tina Saber, Farnaz Takavar
      Pages: 169 - 179
      Abstract: Radioactivity is known to induce tumours, chromosome lesions, and mini-satellite length mutations, but also effects on the DNA sequence. Ramsar region, in the north of Iran with the highest background of natural radiation (<SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra) in the world, with a densely populated area, offers an opportunity to characterise radiation-associated DNA mutations. We sampled 30 individuals from this area and 15 cases from Tehran as controls. We sequenced their mtDNA and found multiple variations in multiple nucleotide positions in Ramsar inhabitants. 16519 and T > C were the most frequent NPS and variables in our study. In this preliminary investigation, we conclude that an elevated level of natural background radiation in Ramsar region had a significant effect on the control region of mtDNA. We think this is the first report from Ramsar in this field. Moreover, using molecular and biological pathways and study of gene expression to understand the cellular and molecular response of human mtDNA to low-dose radiation exposure is recommended.
