X-Ray Versus Gamma Iirradiation Effects on Polymers
Author links open overlay panel


Abstract:
Today, the most common methods used for medical device sterilisation are by gaseous ethylene oxide and by electron beam or gamma irradiation. With X-ray sterilisation about to enter the market, its material compatibility needs to be assessed at doses typically encountered during a sterilisation process.

This paper reports on a study that compares the effects of exposing different types of plastics that are commonly used in medical devices to 60Co or to 5 MeV X-rays. The dose rate for both irradiation modalities was of the same order of magnitude. Under these conditions, both types of radiation are found to have similar effects on polymer properties.

PASSIVE & ACTIVE MECHANISMS TRAP ACTIVATED CD8+ T CELLS IN THE LIVER

The liver is a site where activated CD8+ T cells are trapped and destroyed at the end of an immune response. The intrahepatic accumulation of activated murine TCR transgenic CD8+ T cells was significantly reduced when either ICAM-1 or VCAM-1 was blocked by specific Ab.
