||The occurrence of sister chromatid exchanges in lymphocytes of radon-exposed underground ore miners
||1995, Vol.1, No.1, p.78-86. 13 ref.
||Frequencies of sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) were investigated in peripheral blood samples taken from underground uranium miners exposed to various levels of radon and from unexposed controls. Six exposure groups were identified according to the level of exposure. While no general tendency was observed in change of SCE frequencies with increasing radon exposure, significant differences were found between certain groups of miners. The findings are discussed with respect to the opportunity for biological monitoring of radon exposed persons.
