Urinary cyclophosphamide excretion and micronuclei frequencies in peripheral lymphocytes and in exfoliated buccal epithelial cells of nurses handling antineoplastics.
In this study, urinary cyclophosphamide (CP) excretion rate, as well as micronuclei (MN) in peripheral lymphocytes and in buccal epithelial cells were determined for 26 nurses handlingExpand

Assessment of genotoxic damage in nurses occupationally exposed to antineoplastics by the analysis of chromosomal aberrations
To estimate the genotoxic risk of occupational exposure to antineoplastic drugs, chromosomal aberration (CAs) frequencies in peripheral lymphocytes were determined for 20 nurses handlingExpand

Cytogenetic biomonitoring of workers exposed to bitumen fumes.
Bitumen samples and fumes consist essentially of polycyclic hydrocarbons (PAH) and their derivatives, some of which are known to be carcinogenic or co-carcinogenic in animals. The level of total PAHExpand

Biological monitoring of young workers exposed to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in engine repair workshops.
Several polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are carcinogenic in rodents, while exposure to these compounds has been associated with various types of human cancer. Engine exhaust and used engineExpand

The role of GSTM1, GSTT1, GSTP1, and OGG1 polymorphisms in type 2 diabetes mellitus risk: a case-control study in a Turkish population.
The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of some polymorphisms in GSTs (GSTM1, GSTT1 and GSTP1) which are very important protective mechanisms against oxidative stress and in OGG1Expand

Oxidative stress, Helicobacter pylori, and OGG1 Ser326Cys, XPC Lys939Gln, and XPD Lys751Gln polymorphisms in a Turkish population with colorectal carcinoma.
The contribution of polymorphisms of DNA repair genes OGG1 Ser326Cys, XPC Lys939Gln, and XPD Lys751Gln in developing colorectal carcinoma is controversial. Whether the group 1A carcinogenExpand
