Abstract

Background: Changes in the plasma total antioxidant capacity (TAC) are considered an important prognosis in the formation and progression of many atherogenic diseases, the TAC, carcinogenesis, and inflammation. In this study, plasma TAC values were measured in radiographic and non-radiographic technologists.

Methods: The present study was conducted on 75 people exposed to radiation in the radiology centers of Hamadan hospitals and 75 non-radioactive people working in the other non-radiology departments of Hamadan hospitals. The people in the studied population were matched in terms of age and gender. After preparing their blood samples, the plasma of each was separated, and then, the plasma TAC values were measured by the calorimetric method.

Results: The results showed that the antioxidant capacity of total plasma was lower in radiographic technologists compared to individuals working in other non-radiology departments, so that in the two studied groups, it was 5.32±0.66 and 6.70±0.95 μmol/L, respectively (P<0.0001).

Conclusion: The findings of this research revealed that the plasma TAC was lower in radiographic technologists than in individuals working in other non-radiology departments. Therefore, people exposed to radiation are more exposed to risks caused by changes in plasma TAC, and the use of antioxidant substances is recommended for these people.
