However, due to the large spike in the gamma dose on the tenth shift (greatly exceeding the annual effective dose limit), the worker would be considered to possibly have life-threatening damage to the hematopoietic system and would qualify for close medical monitoring with possible application of radiation countermeasures (e.
For example, bearing in mind the important role played by the hematopoietic system in the release of plasma DNA (17), it is possible that with hormonal or other physiologic changes during pregnancy (18,19), enhanced release of DNA of larger molecular sizes by hematopoietic cells may be possible.
These nonhematopoietic cells accounted for only a minority of the free circulating DNA, agreeing with our previous findings that the hematopoietic system is the predominant origin of plasma cell-free DNA (2).
