Rapid Diagnosis in Populations at Risk from Radiation and Chemicals

It is a reality that we live in a world where populations could be exposed to radiation or hazardous chemicals as a result of an accident, act of terrorism or a war. This exposure could cause serious health problems, sometimes within days or weeks, and may even lead to a latent health effect on humans, such as an increased cancer rate. Health professionals dealing with these cases therefore need methods to measure the effects of radiation and chemicals using molecular a cellular assays, and their possible short a long term consequences for potentially exposed members of a population at risk. Many biological methods are currently available to monitor both the environment and humans following exposure to physical a chemical agents, by using specific biomarkers to measure genetic damage and changes in macromolecules and body tissues. This makes it possible to perform a reliable risk assessment and to protect the public against unwanted consequences of terrorism and other threats...IAEA Vienna, Biological Dosimetry, Cytogenetic Analysis for Radiation Dose Assessment, A Manual, IAEA Technical Reports Series No. 405 ... and risk of cancer in humans: an epidemiological perspective, Cytogenet Genome Res 104 (2004), 376a€“382. ...
