||Sister chromatid exchanges and chromosomal aberrations in occupational exposure to dyes in the textile industry
||Scambi tra cromatidi fratelli e aberrazioni cromosomiche in soggetti professionalmente esposti a coloranti nell'industria tessile [in Italian]|
||Sep.-Oct. 1987, Vol.78, No.5, p.393-396. 7 ref.
||The frequency of sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) and chromosomal aberrations (CA) was studied in peripheral lymphocytes of 10 workers exposed to dyes in the textile industry and was compared to the frequency found in a group of 5 controls. The results showed a higher frequency both of SCE and of CA in the exposed workers compared to the controls and although obtained in a small group of subjects, suggest the need for further investigations on genotoxic risk in this occupational area.
