ABSTRACT: Screening for radioactive material at borders may become more widely introduced in order to prevent illegal transport. All the alarms at Vienna airport so far have been due to recent applications of radionuclides for medical reasons.

This could reduce problems for authorities, patients and institutions. This problem may not have arisen if the authorities had informed the appropriate groups before starting the security procedure.

ABSTRACT: Serum concentrations of acute-phase-proteins C-reactive protein (CRP), 1-antitrypsin (AAT), 1-acid glycoprotein (AGP) as well as levels of immunoglobulins G, A and M and of complement components C3 and C4 were evaluated in 15 patients with advanced (stages III and IV) Hodgkin's disease. Of these patients 9 suffered from B symptoms including pruritus, night sweats and fever. While all patients had highly increased concentrations of CRP and AAT and 11 patients also had elevated levels of AGP in their sera, these concentrations were significantly (PPPPPP
