  1. Human biomonitoring (BM2) measurements were performed in samples collected five days after the third accident. The data show measurements of 8-OHdG as well as the circulating mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA79). The bold data, indicate for values higher than the references.
  2. The controls (con.) represent median values from 30 non-exposed individuals measured in the same analytical step as the patient samples.
  3. n.d. not determined; Ref. = DFG = reference values available from the Senate Commission of the German Research Council [DFG, 2012].
