      Abedi, M; Chao, Nelson J; Chute, JP; Dressman, HK; Himburg, Heather; Lucas, J; Minor, K; ... (12 authors) (PLoS One, 2014)
      Terrorism using radiological dirty bombs or improvised nuclear devices is recognized as a major threat to both public health and national security. In the event of a radiological or nuclear disaster, rapid and accurate ...
    • Dosimetric analysis of the alopecia preventing effect of hippocampus sparing whole brain radiation therapy. 

      Mahadevan, A; Sampson, C; LaRosa, S; Floyd, Scott Richard; Wong, ET; Uhlmann, EJ; Sengupta, S; ... (8 authors) (Radiat Oncol, 2015-11-26)
      BACKGROUND: Whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT) is widely used for the treatment of brain metastases. Cognitive decline and alopecia are recognized adverse effects of WBRT. Recently hippocampus sparing whole brain radiation ...

      Akleyev, AV; Akushevich, Igor; Dimov, GP; Ukraintseva, Svetlana; Varfolomeyeva, TA; Veremeyeva, Galina A; Yashin, Anatoli I (Health Phys, 2010-09)
      The major goal of this study is to investigate and quantitatively describe the nature of the relationship between the characteristics of chronic exposure to ionizing radiation and specific patterns of hematopoiesis reduction. ...
    • Modeling hematopoietic system response caused by chronic exposure to ionizing radiation. 

      Akleyev, AV; Akushevich, Igor; Arbeev, Konstantin; Dimov, GP; Ukraintseva, Svetlana; Veremeyeva, Galina A; Yashin, Anatoli I (Radiat Environ Biophys, 2011-05)
      A new model of the hematopoietic system response in humans chronically exposed to ionizing radiation describes the dynamics of the hematopoietic stem cell compartment as well as the dynamics of each of the four blood cell ...
    • No association between TGFB1 polymorphisms and late radiotherapy toxicity: a meta-analysis. 

      Zhu, ML; Wang, M; Shi, TY; Li, QX; Xi, P; Xia, KQ; Zheng, L; ... (8 authors) (PLoS One, 2013)
      BACKGROUND: Transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-β1) protein may be multifunctional and related to the development of fibrosis, induction of apoptosis, extracellular signaling and inhibition of proliferation in response ...
    • Targeted radiotherapy of brain tumours. 

      Zalutsky, Michael Rod (Br J Cancer, 2004-04-19)
      The utility of external beam radiotherapy for the treatment of malignant brain tumours is compromised by the need to avoid excessive radiation damage to normal CNS tissues. This review describes the current status of targeted ...
