||The analysis of sister chromatid exchange (SCE) is a useful technique for the study of genetic damage in humans exposed to environmental mutagens and carcinogens. In the present study, lymphocyte sister chromatid exchange frequencies were determined for 12 long-term coke-oven workers and 20 controls. The duration of exposure to the coke oven emissions ranged from 15 to 32 years. The mean SCE frequency for the exposed group was 13.04 ▒ 1.47 SCEs per cell and that for the control group was 8.82▒1.26. The increased SCE frequency in coke-oven workers may be related to the long-term exposure to coke-oven emissions.
