  1. A-bomb survivors : further evidence of late effects of early deaths.

    Article - En anglais

    Reanalysis of A-bomb survivor data has shown the following: a) in the high-dose (>1 Gy) subgroups of the life span study cohort of 5-y survivors, there is a significant deficit of individuals who were <10 y or >50 y at the time of the bomb; and b) in the cohort on in vitro children, there is a significant deficit of individuals who were <8 wk of fetal age when exposed.

    This paper discusses how this selection bias has affected the perception of three effects of A-bomb radiation: marrow damage, carcinogenesis, and second-generation effects.
