RERF's Research

Matters likely to take more than 20 years

1. Why does radiation-induced cancer development vary from organ to organ?
2. Are cancers induced by radiation different from those induced by other causes?

3. How do non-cancer diseases increase among A-bomb survivors?
4. Are lifestyle-oriented diseases expected to increase among A-bomb survivors' children? If so, why?
If collection and preservation of biological samples were sufficiently conducted in addition to the data (clinical examination data, data on diseases, etc.) obtained thus far, researching the above issues would be possible. To study the effects of radiation on genes, for example, cell lines were established with blood samples obtained from about 1,000 families, consisting of father-mother-child units, and these cell lines have been preserved in liquid nitrogen.
