Established in 2005, the Inter-Agency Agreement between NIAID and the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) funds research in several areas related to the challenges encountered following radiological or nuclear events. These include: 1) Screen countermeasures to prevent, mitigate/ treat radiation injuries; 2) Automation of dicentric assay; 3) Develop animal model, study mechanism, and screen countermeasures to mitigate/treat radiation combined injury; 4) Develop animal model, study mechanism, and screen countermeasures to mitigate/treat gamma/neutron mixed field injury; 5) Develop Gottingen Minipig as a Model for Acute Radiation Syndrome.
The NIAID-funded AFRRI screening program has performed toxicity studies, dose optimization, time optimization for post exposure, optimum route of administration and efficacy of post exposure (24 hours and beyond) administration of 55 single drugs and 3 combinations on survival in CD2F1 male mice at LD90/30 and LD70/30 doses. One of the promising drugs is being evaluated for post- exposure efficacy in non-human primate model. NIAID-funded work at AFFRI has automated dicentric sample processing and scoring with a throughput of approximately 1,000 samples per day. In addition, AFRRI has developed and characterized rodent model for radiation+wound and radiation+burn combined injury as well as neutron (65 percent) + gamma (35 percent) mixed field injury, and efficacy evaluation of several potential countermeasures in these animal models is on going. Also, AFRRI has developed and characterized Gottingen Minipig as a model for acute radiation syndrome.
NIAID and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) are cooperating on specific research ranging from identification, characterization, and validation of safe and effective radiation/nuclear medical countermeasures, development of biology-based diagnostic assays or biomarkers to assess cellular and tissue damage following exposure to ionizing radiation and addressing other scientific areas with strong programmatic relevance, such as radiation epidemiology and radionuclide decorporation.
The following principal investigators within intramural NCI have projects being funded by this intramural opportunity within the NIAID Radiation/Nuclear Countermeasures Program:
Dr. Amy Berrington de González
Dr. Kiyohiko Mabuchi
Dr. Steven Simon
Dr. William Bonner
Dr. Martin Brechbiel
Dr. Deborah Citrin
Dr. Frank Gonzalez
Dr. James Mitchell
Scientific accomplishments for this program include
Finding of a large bystander effect in 3-dimensional skin and airway radiation exposure models. This has implications for effects of partial body irradiations or inhomogeneous exposures.
Demonstration of a clear separation in metabolomic signatures between sham and irradiated in vitro samples, with little variation between sham-irradiated cells, and identification of several candidate metabolomic markers for radiation exposure.
Analysis of I-131 biokinetic data from 140 patients treated with I-131 for hyperthyroid, EPR analysis of 103 teeth from Semipalatinsk, Kazakhstan, populations exposed to radiation and testing of a novel biodosimetry system based on optically stimulated luminescence (OSL).
Synthesis of 8 nitroxide analogs and irradiation of 1,275 mice (2 strains) in order to evaluate the efficacy of Tempol food in minimizing radiation-induced carcinogenesis.
NIAID and the National Institute on Aging (NIA) are cooperating on specific research and development projects to benefit both Institutes’ goals of advancing the study of immunesenescence from the natural process of aging and radiation exposure and its amelioration in prevention and intervention therapies. Awarded in September 2009, the following laboratories within intramural NIA are being funded:
Dr. Ranjan Sen (Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Immunology)
Dr. Nan-Ping Weng (Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Immunology, Lymphocyte Differentiation Section)
Dr. Edward Lakatta (Laboratory of Cardiovascular Science)
These research projects, funded at the end of FY 09, focus on how ionizing radiation and natural aging affect a person’s ability to respond to vaccination and the ability of the immune system to respond to vaccination and cause inflammation, which is a hallmark of immune aging.
