Proceedings of a conference jointly organized with WHO, in co-operation with UNSCEAR, Seville, Spain, 17–21 November 1997. The purpose of the conference was to foster information exchange on the health effects of low doses of ionizing radiation, the regulatory approach to the control of low level radiation exposure, and the connection between these matters and the so-called linear, no threshold assumption concerning the effects of low doses.
Contents: Opening session; Reports form international organizations on biological effects of ionizing radiation; Reports on related international conferences; Molecular mechanisms of radiation effects: Point and clastogenic mutations (Forum 1); Adaptive responses: Enhanced repair and apoptosis (Forum 2); Multistage processes of radiation induced malignancies; Mechanisms of initiation, promotion and progression (Forum 3); Hereditary effects (Forum 4); Epidemiological evidence (Forum 5); Radiobiological issues in the application of epidemiological evidence (Forum 6); Effects of low doses on human health: Radiation risk estimates (Forum 7); From the scientific evidence to radiation protection (Special session); Control measures for practices causing exposure (Forum 8); Reduction of existing doses by intervention (Forum 9); Chronic exposure situations: Radiological criteria for restoration of land (Forum 10); Regulatory control and scientific research; Summary session; Closing session.
