1 CANCER AND LOW DOSE RESPONSES IN VIVO: IMPLICATIONS FOR RADIATION PROTECTION Ron Mitchel Radiation Biology and Health Physics Branch Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, Chalk River Laboratories, Chalk River, ON, K0J 1J0 Canada

2 The Linear Dose-Risk Function (risk of cancer from irradiation)? R R = α D D R = risk in exposed tissue D = absorbed dose

3 Linear No Threshold Hypothesis Implies: 1. Risk is determined by the physics 2. Biological inputs to the risk are either constant with dose or irrelevant at all doses

4 Radiation at Low Doses Dose = energy/unit mass Radiation deposits energy in tracks The lowest dose a cell can receive is one track At doses < 1 track/cell, not all cells are hit. Those that are hit still receive 1 track

5 Linear No Threshold Hypothesis is Accepted by Regulatory Agencies ISSUE Is the LNT hypothesis true for cancer risk at low doses??

6 Radiation Protection: LNT Hypothesis Dose is a surrogate for risk Risk per unit dose is constant without a threshold, overall and for each tissue Dose (risk) is additive (normalized using Sv) and can only increase At low doses and dose rates risk is reduced 2 fold (DDREF=2)

7 Cancer Does the LNT approach adequately predict risk at all doses for: Normal individuals Cancer prone individuals

8 A radiation exposure is a change in the environment that creates a stress The Basic Rule of Biology In a Changing Environment: Adapt or Die

9 ADAPTIVE RESPONSE Exposure of cells or animals to radiation at a low dose and dose rate induces mechanisms that protect against the detrimental effects of other events or agents, including radiation

24 DO THESE RADIATION-INDUCIBLE ADAPTIVE PROCESSES PRODUCE PROTECTIVE EFFECTS IN VIVO??

32 Spinal Osteosarcomas in Trp53+/- Mice Number of Spinal Osteosarcomas 25 0 Gy Trp53 +/- 10 mgy Trp53 +/- 100 mgy Trp53 +/ Tumor Latency (days)

33 Bottom Line Low doses of low LET radiation, at low dose rate, reduce, not increase, risk in vivo

34 IMPLICATIONS for LNT High dose responses cannot be extrapolated to low doses At low doses in vivo, cancer risk is not proportional to dose Dose thresholds for increased risk exist in both normal and cancer prone individuals Cancer susceptibility modifies threshold (zero risk) dose

35 IMPLICATIONS FOR DOSE ADDITIVITY Radiation protection assumes dose (i.e risk) additivity (Sv) If some doses protect, doses are not additive Further complicated if some doses protect some but not all organs

36 IMPLICATIONS FOR DDREF Assumed DDREF = 2 for increased risk If risk from low dose/dose rate 0 then DDREF may =

37 IMPLICATIONS FOR W t Tissue Weighting Factors (W t ) are not constant with dose W t changes from positive values through zero to negative values as dose decreases Cancer proneness and/or a second dose modify W t

38 IMPLICATIONS FOR W R Radiation weighting factors (W R ) for high LET are based on the RBE ratio with low LET BUT: Low doses of low LET are protective in vivo (negative risk) THEREFORE: At low doses W R and dose in Sv have no meaning

39 IMPLICATIONS FOR ALARA Preventing an exposure that would induce an adaptive response will INCREASE risk!

40 THE BIG QUESTION Regulations are based on human epidemiological data: So Why is the accepted human epidemiological data inconsistent with data from all other organisms???

41 Statistically significant increases in cancer risk in humans can be only detected down to about 100mGy 100 mgy is very close to the transition point between protection and harm in rodent and human cells and in mice.

42 RADIATION PROTECTION CONCLUSIONS The assumptions of the LNT hypothesis and radiation protection practices are not compatible with the observations in vitro or in vivo Environmental assessments must consider real effects A new approach to radiation protection at low doses is needed

43 POTENTIAL REGULATORY SOLUTION Adopt Linear With Threshold hypothesis
