Document Early and late effects of radiation in normal tissues and organs: threshold doses for tissue reactions and other non-cancer effects of radiation in a radiation protection context
 

Dear colleagues


 


I would like to make some observations in the Draft Report « Early and late effects of radiation in normal tissues and organs: threshold doses for tissue reactions and other non-cancer effects of radiation in a radiation protection context »


 


1) The unit used is Gy, mGy or cGy.  I think it is better to use all the time Gy only


 


2)      in paragraph 1.3.1There is no mention to Autophagy, necrosis and mitotic catastrophe as a mechanism likely to cause cellullar death


3)      Line 1675 reference is UNSCEAR 2008. it is not mentioned  in the references,  I think that the reference is UNSCEAR 2006 ?


 


4)      Fig 2.3 is too  small


 


5)      Line 9374 Is USNCEAR 2006 not 2009


 


I hope that this small contribution will be useful.


Thanks you in advance
