Histological types of lung cancer in uranium miners

Abstract

The recent results confirm linear dependence of exposure and relative risk, decrease of alpha radiation effect with time since exposure and decrease of effect in older age categories. A detailed analysis of exposure -effect relationship for two main histologic types of lung cancer confirms hypothesis formulated by J. Sevc about parallel inhibition effect of alpha radiation in higher exposure rates which followed after period of initiation of malignant processes of bronchial epithelium cells. This phenomenon was observed only in small cell type of lung cancer (authors). 4 tabs., 5 refs.
