This text is devoted to the theoretical studies of radiation effects on mammals. It uses the framework of developed deterministic mathematical models to investigate the effects of both acute and.   Iberall A.S. Quantitative modeling of the physiological factors in radiation lethality. Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, v. , Art. I, pp. 1–81, Author: Olga A. Smirnova. Physiological stressors encountered by soldiers and marines affect health and performance. Human per-formance optimization involves strategies to sustain health and performance in the face of these stressors. Physiological modeling defining human tolerance limits and the effect of moderating factors provides scientifically based strategies. Having started such studies some time in the past for the U.S. Army, support was sought at AEC to finish the task, and a study was reported publicly from a homeokinetic point of view as “Quantitative Modeling of the Physiological Factors in Radiation Lethality”, Ann. NY Acad. Sci., , pp. ,

Lethality is the most common consequence of irradiation during the preimplantation stage (within 10 days of conception), growth retardation has been noted for irradiation during the implantation stage (10 to 14 days after conception), and during the organogenesis period (about 15 to 50 days after conception), the embryo is sensitive to lethal, teratogenic, and growth-retarding.

What ultimately matters given any drug application is the effective dose versus the toxic dose, which we can described in terms of an ED 50 versus TD 50 or LD 50 (these are the dosages, respectively, which achieve efficacy, toxicity, or lethality in 50% of the individuals so administered).

In biology, epigenetics is the study of heritable phenotype changes that do not involve alterations in the DNA sequence. The Greek prefix epi-(ἐπι-"over, outside of, around") in epigenetics implies features that are "on top of" or "in addition to" the traditional genetic basis for inheritance. Epigenetics most often involves changes that affect gene activity and expression, but the term. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

Radiation oncology, which is a cornerstone of cancer therapy, originated from basic physical chemistry research. Physics and mathematics are central to designing the accelerators that are used to generate radiation and the algorithms that are used to determine where the radiation should be delivered and how much radiation should be used. the biology of life-span - a quantitative approach - gavrilov,la, gavrilova,ns z gerontol 25 (1): jan-feb walford rl the biology of the life-span - a quantitative approach - gavrilov,la, gavrilova,ns gerontologist 31 (5): oct anisimov vn effects of .
