Description/Abstract:
IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA AND SWITZERLAND, LUMINOUS DIAL PAINTERS INCORPORATED STRONTIUM-90 AND RADIUM-226, CORRESPONDING IN 1966 TO 10 PERCENT OR M ORE OF THE PRESENT MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE BODY BURDEN COMBINED FOR BOTH R ADIONUCLIDES. DETAILED DATA OF 13 SELECTED PERSONS ARE PRESENTED AND D ISCUSSED FROM THE PINT OF VIEW OF STRONTIUM-90 EFFECTS. WHILE HAEMATOL OGICAL CHANGES MIGHT ALSO BE DUE TO OTHER FACTORS, KARYOLOGICAL RESULT S INDICATE THE EFFECT OF INTERNAL IRRADIATION. CHROMOSOMAL ABERRATIONS , STABLE AND UNSTABLE, INCREASE WITH THE ESTIMATED DOSE RATE TO THE BO NE MARROW. ALSO THE FRACTION OF ANEUPLOID CELLS IS ABOUT TWICE AS HIGH IN EXPOSED PERSONS AS IN THE CONTROLS. ALTHOUGH STRONTIUM-90 SEEMS TO BE A DOMINANT FACTOR, THE EFFECT OF RADIUM-226 AS WELL AS OF EXTERNAL IRRADIATION CANNOT BE EXCLUDED.
