Scientific Testing

1. Environmental Testing

 

We assess levels of isotopic contamination of the environment of symptomatic humans. Samples from the local water supplies, soil and air (dust swipes) are taken.

 

2. Clinical Testing

 

The scientific work includes clinical research into the effects of such exposure or contamination.

 

 

2.1 Contamination Testing

 

Specimens are collected from persons who have been exposed to and contaminated in order to determine the biological and medical effects, i.e. symptomatic, contaminated civilians and military personnel were tested and uranium isotopes excreted in urine after the inhalation of uranium dust, were measured in order to determine the original intake and assess medical effects..

 

 

2.2 Chromosomal Aberrations Testing

 

The Genetic Aberrations Project Studies (GAPS) is a new clinical testing project. Genomic testing has been conducted on civilians and veterans returning from areas contaminated by uranium dust released by uranium containing weapon systems. Biological specimens allow the measurement of genomic aberrations in individuals and genetic aberrations within the family, i.e. symptomatic subjects with higher levels of uranium excretion have been tested to assess the degree of genomic aberrations. Genetic testing in families are the focus of the more recent research work to see how these aberrations have affected the offspring, i.e. the next generation.

 

Mission Statement

“The Uranium Medical Research Institute (UMRI) is committed to the advancement of education for the public benefit on the effects of uranium and transuranic elements on humans and the biosphere by conducting and publishing independent, objective and expert scientific and medical research on the subject.”
