"SENSITIVITY SYNDROME" RELATED TO RADIATION EXPOSURES Barnes J G Foundation for Advancements in Science and Education (FASE) Los Angeles USA
Noting that significant numbers of residents and liquidators report debilitating illnesses not easily explained by genetic effects this paper presents results of a literature search which suggests that a previously unrecognised neural pathway may be responsible and that a common link between radiation and chemical sensitivity syndromes may be identified.

STEM CELLS UNDER IONISING RADIATION EXPOSURE Bazayka D, et al Research Cent. for Rad. Med. of AMS of Ukraine, Kiev.
Leukopenia feeding through to anomalous blood counts in irradiated individuals.

INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT OF CHILDREN EXPOSED TO RADIOACTIVE IODINE AFTER THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT IN UTERO AND AT THE AGE UNDER 1.5 YEARS Bazyltchik S V et al. Clin. Res. Inst. for Rad. Med. and Endocrinonology Minsk; Clinic and Polyclinic for Nuclear Medicine, Univ. of Wurzburg Germany; State Research Centre Inst. Biophysics Moscow
Intellectual development impaired. Effect is dose dependent.

ASSESSMENT OF HAEMOPOIESIS IN CHILDREN EVACUATED FROM PRYPIAT AND LIVING IN TERRITORIES CONTAMINATED WITH RADIONUCLIDES AFTER THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT Bebeshko V B et al. Res. Cent. for Rad. Med. of AMS of Ukraine Kiev.
Effective exposures to children in four regions of Ukraine ranged from 0.7mSv to 16.5 mSv. No evidence of increased rates of leukaemia but after the accident a rising number of unfavourable versions [of] acute lymphoblastic leukaemia ... No correlation between dose and leukaemia rates.

CHROMOSOMAL MUTAGENESIS IN BLOOD LYMPHOCYTES OF THE CHERNOBYL EXCLUSION ZONE VILLAGES' RESIDENTS Bezdrobnaya L K et al. Sci. Cent. Inst. for Nuc. Res. NAS Ukraine Kiev.
Haematological investigation of people returning to the 30km exclusion zone found no correlation between any of the types of blood lymphocyte aberrations found and either individual dose or levels of ground deposition. Incidence of cells with two chromosome exchanges attributed to uneven internal irradiation by transuranic elements.

GENETIC EFFECTS OF RADIATION AND PROGNOSIS OF THE INHERITED PATHOLOGY OF THE POPULATION OF THE REGIONS ADJOINING TO FORMER SEMIPALATINSK NUCLEAR TESTING SITE Bigialev A B Kundakbaeva G B Al-Farabi Kazakh State Uni; and Bigialeva R K , S D Asphendiarov Kazakh State Medical Uni.
Data on spontaneous abortion, perinatal mortality, congenital defects, cancer and inherited degenerative diseases of the neural system demonstrated the impact of chronic exposure to small doses.

THE CHARACTERISTIC OF NEUROLOGICAL AND IMMUNE DISTURBANCES OF THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT CONSEQUENCES LIQUIDATORS IN THE REMOTE PERIOD. Frolova N S et al. Siberian Medical Univ. Tomsk, Region Medical Rehab. Centre "Chernobyl" Tomsk.
A large proportion of a group of liquidators controlled against a healthy group 12 - 14 years after the accident reported a wide range of symptoms and exhibited many clinical disorders.

REMOTE CONSEQUENCES OF THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT Goncharova R; Inst. of Genetics and Cytology, NAS Belarus, Minsk
Findings of RERF and the authors' studies of effects in mammals and fish under low dose chronic exposure indicate absence of threshold. Dose-effect relationships in low dose range are best approximated by non-linear functions. The associations between radiation doses and rates of congenital malformation recorded in different regions of Belarus by Lazjuk et al. in 1999 could also be explained by non-linear relationships, according to authors. Coefficients of low dose ERRs determined by the RERF are higher than ERR for high doses.
