Abstract
The possible influence of selected intrinsic and extrinsic factors on the cytokinesis block peripheral lymphocyte micronucleus assay was investigated. Analysis of micronuclei in peripheral blood lymphocytes using the cytokinesis block method was performed on healthy volunteers up to three times for each individual at intervals of approximately 4 months. Recent health and lifestyle information was obtained through the use of questionnaires. The findings indicated that age and estimated number of diagnostic X- rays received during the past year contributed significantly to the increased frequency of micronuclei. Linear regressions of log mean micronuclei on the average number of caffeinated beverages per day, number of cigarettes per day and average number of alcohol containing beverages per week were all nonsignificant.
