This report, which covers the period October 1, 1990, through September 30, 1991, describes the scientific progress in, and current status of, life-span studies on the long-term health risks of chronic irradiation of Beagle dogs from internally deposited radionuclides or an external gamma source. Primary emphasis is placed on the 19 major studies that were initiated at the Inhalation Toxicology Research Institute, ITRI, and are now being completed. In addition, information is provided on life-span studies initiated at the University of Utah. All living dogs in the Utah-initiated studies were transferred to the ITRI facility for the remainder of their life-span observations and measurements in September 1987. After this transfer, scientists at both institutions have worked collaboratively to ensure the orderly and thorough completion of these studies. This report is the third in a series of annual reports dealing with the current status and progress of both the Utah and ITRI studies.
