Abstract: A total of 1,002 workers aged 36 to 72 years who were engaged in atomic industry and exposed to external gamma-irradiation and incorporated plutonium 239 in a wide dosage range. The levels of uric acid (UA), the incidence of hyperuricemia and their association with 2 radiation and 12 nonradiation factors were studied in the examinees. There was a positive correlation between the purine metabolic parameters and the total dosage of external gamma-irradiation, sex (UC levels were higher in males than in females), body weight index, essential hypertension, and the type of haptoglobin 1-1. The influence of nonradiation factors on the parameters in question were substantially greater than that of external irradiation. Linear regression equations were derived for the dependence of the levels of UA and hyperuricemia upon the influencing factors
