AB  - Urine, hair and nail samples were collected from a population of both sex aged from 40 to 87 years in Niška Banja (227 km south of Belgrade, Serbia) with a high level of natural radioactivity (HLNRA). To assess and monitor the public exposure, urine samples for each subject (24 h period) were collected and concentration of uranium (U) was analysed using alpha-particle spectrometry. Human hair and nails considered as bio-indicators of the public exposure to radionuclides over a long period of months or even years and concentration of U was determined using inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry. The mean concentrations of U in urine, hair and nail were 123 ng/L, 17 ng/g and 8 ng/g, respectively. There was a large variation and may be due to geological origin.

AB  - Human hair and nails can be considered as bio-indicators of the public exposure to certain natural radionuclides and other toxic metals over a long period of months or even years. The level of elements in hair and nails usually reflect their levels in other tissues of body. Nigka Banja, a spa town located in southern Serbia, with locally high natural background radiation was selected for the study. To assess public exposure to the trace elements, hair and nail samples were collected and analyzed. The concentrations of uranium, thorium and some trace and toxic elements (Mn, Ni, Cu, Sr, Cd, and Cs) were determined using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). U and Th concentrations in hair varied from 0.0002 to 0.0771 mu g/g and from 0.0002 to 0.0276 mu g/g, respectively. The concentrations in nails varied from 0.0025 to 0.0447 mu g/g and from 0.0023 to 0.0564 mu/g for U and Th, respectively. We found significant correlations between some elements in hair and nails. Also indications of spatial clustering of high values could be found. However, this phenomenon as well as the large variations in concentrations of heavy metals in hair and nail could not be explained. As hypotheses, we propose possible exposure pathways which may explain the findings, but the current data does not allow testing them. Crown Copyright (C) 2015 Published by Elsevier Ltd.

AB  - Hair analysis is extensively used in forensic sciences, assessment of occupational or environmental exposure and in some cases for clinical and nutritional studies. The present study summarizes the analytical methodology and distribution of uranium and some selected trace metals e.g., Mn, Ni, Cu, Zn, Sr, Cd and Cs in human scalp hair samples using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). Uranium isotopic ratio (U-235/U-238) has been measured using thermal ionization mass spectrometry (TIMS). For quality control, five certified reference materials such as SRM 1571, NIES 13, IAEA 086, NCS ZC 81002 and BCR CRM 397 have been analyzed by the proposed methods and the measured uranium concentrations in some selected hair samples were compared with the results by radiochemical neutron activation analysis (RNAA). The methodology was applied for measurement of uranium and selected trace metals in human scalp hair collected from Balkans exposed to DU ammunitions. Uranium concentrations in human hair samples from Balkans show a wide variation ranging from 0.90 +/- 0.05 ng/g to 449 +/- 12 ng/g whereas other trace metal concentrations like Mn, Ni, Cu, Zn, Sr, Cd and Cs were found to be comparable with the reported values of healthy persons worldwide. Though hair samples were collected from a Balkan conflict zone, uranium isotopic measurement (U-235/U-238) indicated natural origin rather than depleted uranium.

AB  - The possible consequences of the use of depleted uranium (DU) used in Balkan conflicts in 1995 and 1999 for the people and the environment of this reason need attention. The heavy metal content in human hair may serve as a good indicator of dietary, environmental and occupational exposures to the metal compounds. The present work summarises the distribution of uranium and some selected trace metals such as Mn, Ni, Cu, Zn, Sr, Cd and Cs in the scalp hair of inhabitants from Balkans exposed to DU directly and indirectly, i.e. Han Pijesak, Bratoselce and Gornja Stub la areas. Except U and Cs, all other metals were compared with the worldwide reported values of occupationally unexposed persons. Uranium concentrations show a wide variation ranging from 0.9 +/- 0.05 to 449 +/- 12 mu g kg(-1). Although hair samples were collected from Balkan conflict zones, uranium isotopic measurement (U-235/U-238) shows a natural origin rather than DU.
