The F1 Clinical Study aims, first of all, to contribute to the health and welfare of each study participant through health examinations provided at RERF. The study is also tasked with investigating genetic effects of A-bomb radiation such as whether A-bomb radiation exposure affects disease incidence in the offspring of A-bomb survivors and whether any changes are observed in biological samples such as blood and urine provided by the study’s participants.
