Abstract
The assessment of chromosome aberrations in human metaphase cells is a method currently used for detecting a biological effect of radiations and chemicals on genetic material. Data are given on rates of chromosome aberrations observed in radiation workers, in subjects exposed to benzene (71432) and toluene (108883), in workers with lead (7439921) poisoning, and healthy, unexposed controls. A prospective investigation on 11 subjects studied before and after first lead exposure showed a significant increase in chromatid and one break chromosome changes after one month of exposure. The use of more refined techniques, including automated systems, for detecting chromosome changes is noted. (Grant No. OH 00339)
