(COST) (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) Europe - Video about how radiopeptides destroy tumors04.Mar.2015
Award winner: This movie received the AIPES Press and Media Award 2013! The movie on the astonishing effects of radiopeptides in cancer is freely available for educational purposes to students and patients. It explains the application of radiolabeled peptides for cancer therapy in nuclear medicine. After injection into the body the molecules bind to somatostatin receptors over-expressed on tumor cells, whereas normal cells have a much lower density or no receptors at all. Excellent results are being obtained in patients as also shown on the sans in the video.
Mohn Doss, Medical Physicist in Diagnostic Imaging. Research on Health Effects of Low Dose Radiation Specialties - When the effect of adaptive response is included, there is no linear increase in final total damage with dose for low doses, and no reason to even propose the LNT hypothesis..
M.N.H. Comsan - Worldwide, in 2007, there are 439 operating nuclear reactors working in 31 countries with 361 GWe installed power representing ~17% of world demand on electricity. Most of these reactors were designed and developed during the 1960s. For almost five decades, the nuclear power industry has been developing and improving nuclear design and technology towards safer and more reliable operation. With the increase of world demand on energy, 136 new reactors are needed just to maintain the nuclear energy share at the same level by 2025.
