||Frequency of sister chromatid exchange and haematological effects in glass-houses fumigators exposed to pesticides
||Frecuencia del intercambio entre cromátidas hermanas y efectos hematológicos en los fumigadores de invernaderos expuestos a pesticidas [in Spanish]|
||1996, Vol.43, No.168, p.161-169.
||A cross-sectional study involving 134 glass-houses fumigators exposed to a mixture of pesticides and 157 controls was carried out in order to investigate the genotoxicity and haematotoxicity of the products used. Sister chromatid exchange method (SCE) and blood count were used to evaluate chromosome and haematological alterations. SCE frequency was higher in non-smoking fumigators, as opposed to controls. No difference was found in the haematological profiles of the two groups. The results suggest that occupational exposure to pesticides may have genotoxic effects.
