Abstract Space radiation cancer risk may be a potential obstacle for long-duration spaceflight. Among all types of cancer space radiation may induce, lung cancer has been estimated to be the largest potential risk. Although previous animal study has shown that Fe ions, the most important contributor to the total dose equivalent of space radiation, induced a higher incidence of lung tumorigenesis per dose than X-rays, the underlying mechanisms at cellular level remained unclear. Therefore, in the present study, we investigated long-term biological changes in NL20 human bronchial epithelial cells after exposure to F...

Authors: Wang H, Zhao T, Li LC, Pan H, Liu W, Gao H, Han F, Wang Y, Qi Y, Liang Z Abstract The malignancy risk differentiation of pulmonary nodule is one of the most challenge tasks of computer-aided diagnosis (CADx). Most recently reported CADx methods or schemes based on texture and shape estimation have shown relatively satisfactory on differentiating the risk level of malignancy among the nodules detected in lung cancer screening. However, the existing CADx schemes tend to detect and analyze characteristics of pulmonary nodules from a statistical perspective according to local features only. Enlightened by the ...

Contributors : Yutaka Yamada ; Benjamin J BlythSeries Type : Genome variation profiling by genome tiling arrayOrganism : Rattus norvegicusStudies of radiation exposed populations have shown that children are at greater overall risk of radiation-induced cancer, although there is considerable debate relating to heterogeneity of the effect in different tissues. Given public concern around increasing radiation doses received by children from advanced diagnostic imaging, and the use of radiotherapy to treat childhood cancers, understanding the relationship between age-at-exposure and radiation-induced cancer risk is a priority ...

An $80 million asbestos settlement involving two former Jackson County courthouse employees led to Missouri’s largest medical monitoring fund established in an asbestos case. The class-action asbestos lawsuit settled more than 30 years after a renovation exposed thousands of government workers to deadly asbestos fibers. Jackson County and Kansas City-based U.S. Engineering, the firm responsible for the asbestos removal, agreed to settle the case in October 2016, just a week prior to the opening trial date. An estimated 7,500 people — former courthouse employees, jurors, attorneys and jail inmates — could...

Over the last half century, technology has made possible the probing of the solar system and galaxy beyond. People can instantly correspond with anyone in the world. We can see —in real time—events and phenomena heretofore only reported by second and third hand accounts. Yet with all of the distance breached by modern devices, we are also able to know in detail the goings on inside our own bodies. With the advent of computed tomography (CT) imaging, known familiarly as “CAT scans,” doctors and their patients now get a bird’s eye view of internal organs. This scientific know-how goes beyond sim...
