  1. 1. Neonatal Exposure to Low-Dose Ionizing Radiation in Mice Developmental Neurotoxic Effects of Single and Fractionated Doses and Interaction with Nicotine

    University dissertation from Uppsala

    Author : Sonja Buratovic; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to investigate the developmental neurotoxic effects of low-dose exposure to ionizing radiation, alone or together with nicotine, during a defined critical period of neonatal brain development in mice. Investigation of neurotoxic effects following fractionated or acute low-dose radiation, resembling the clinical situation during repeated CT scans or radiation delivered to non-target tissue during radiotherapy, and possible interaction effects with other agents, is of great importance for risk and safety evaluation.

    Abstract : This thesis examines the developmental neurotoxic effects of exposure to low-dose ionizing radiation (IR), alone or together with xenobiotics, during a critical period of neonatal brain development in mice.During mammalian brain development there is a period called the brain growth spurt (BGS), which involves extensive growth and maturation of the brain.
