This monograph evaluates the facts for carcinogenicity of ionizing radiation from internally deposited radionuclides. The radionuclides thought of during this monograph belong to 2 huge different types: those who emit a-particles (helium nuclei) and those who emit b-particles (electrons) in the course of their fundamental radioactive decay.

The last case involved a local 15 year-old Senegalese boy presenting near Kedougou with a malaria-like disease. He developed mild arthralgia that lasted nearly a month without any other symptoms. , 2008b). From 1964– 1968, 14 of the 32 strains of DENV isolated from febrile patients were classified as DENV-2, of which 10 strains were isolated in 1966. , 2008b). Although there are no written records on the above patients’ locations of residence or places of exposure, all resided within the Ibadan city limits.

IV. EVOLUTION A. DENV evolutionary relationships—origins and emergence Gubler’s (Gubler, 1997) hypothesis that endemic DENV evolved from sylvatic progenitors has been the subject of intense discussion and speculation. As mentioned above, sylvatic DENV cycles occur in the forests of West Africa and Southeast Asia involving only the DENV-2 serotype in the former region, whereas in the latter all four serotypes may be represented. Virus maintenance in both regions involves sylvatic Aedes spp. mosquito vectors, and presumably non-human primates serving as reservoir hosts.
