The Decreasing Dose Rate Effect

Posted By Administration, Friday, April 2, 2010
Updated: Monday, April 22, 2013

We begin our podcast with a "News Minute with Vered”, who discusses the nominees for the Nobel Peace prize for 2010. Will we win this year? This month our interview is with Karl Brehwens and Andrzej Wojcik and discusses their article: Cytogenetic Damage in Cells Exposed to Ionizing Radiation under Conditions of a Changing Dose Rate. The authors used a setup in which cells, kept at a constant temperature, moved to and from an X-ray source to expose them to a changing dose rate, as shown in their video: Experimental setup of Karl Brehwens and colleagues.

An Adoptive Transfer Method to Detect Low-Dose Radiation-Induced Bystander Effects in Vivo

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 16, 2010
Updated: Monday, April 22, 2013
This months "News Minute with Vered” briefly reviews the recently published book "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot. Henrietta Lacks is the donor of the cells that became the original immortal cell line that most of us know as HeLa cells. Our interview of the month is with Dr. Benjamin Blyth and Prof. Pamela Sykes on their recently published article discussing a method to detect bystander effects in vivo induced by low dose radiation.

The Potentials of Tumor Oximetry and Cell Cycle Checkpoint Inhibition

Posted By Administration, Monday, December 14, 2009
Updated: Monday, April 22, 2013

Welcome to the November issue of the Radiation Research podcast!

In this issue, Vered’s News Minutefocuses on the risks of radiation exposure from multiple X-ray imaging tests.

The interview of the month is with Drs. Khan and Eastman from The Dartmouth Medical School and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire, describing the potentials of tumor pO2 measurements and the use of cell cycle checkpoint inhibitors in cancer treatment. This discussion is based on their article that appeared in the November issue of Radiation Research: Radiotherapy in Conjunction with 7-Hydroxystaurosporine: A Multimodal Approach with Tumor pO2 as a Potential Marker of Therapeutic Response
