ICRP Publication 83. Risk Estimation for Multifactorial Diseases. Recommended citation ICRP, 1999.

ICRP Publication 83. It provides a broad outline of the aetiological features and examples of multifactorial diseases. It considers the concepts and models used to explain their inheritance patterns, with particular emphasis on the Multifactorial Threshold Model.

Annals of the ICRP was established in 1977. Previously, ICRP issued its recommendations as individual books or as part of other publications. ICRP Publication 83. ICRP began numbering its publications in 1960, although ICRP’s 1959 recommendations are now referred to as Publication 1. Before this time, the recommendations are generally referred to by the year in which they were issued. Recommendations from 1928 to 1937 were issued by the International X-Ray and Radium Protection Committee or Commission (IXRPC).

ICRP Publication 83 reviews data on naturally occurring multifactorial diseases and develops a mathematical model to predict the impact of radiation induced mutations on the frequencies of these diseases in the population. It provides a broad outline of the aetiological features and examples of multifactorial diseases. It considers the concepts and models used to explain their inheritance patterns, with particular emphasis on the Multifactorial Threshold Model. Conceptual differences from ‘mendelian’ diseases are discussed, and pertinent epidemiology is reviewed. Particular attention is paid to diabetes mellitus and to coronary heart disease. Mechanistic models in population genetics are considered. The concepts of liability, threshold, mutation-selection balance, and mutation component are integrated into a Finite Locus Threshold Model as a basis for risk estimation. The relevance of these findings for estimation of radiation risk of multifactorial diseases is discussed.
