Forty women using the copper-containing intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) for various periods and 22 control women were studied. The copper and zinc levels were measured in the plasma of the IUCD users and the control group. Chromosomal analyses were performed on blood lymphocytes of the same groups. Results showed that plasma copper level was(More)
Sister-chromatid exchange (SCE) frequencies were studied in peripheral blood lymphocytes from 19 patients (13 males and 6 females) with Schistosoma hematobium, prior to the initiation of chemotherapy. The mean frequency of SCE per metaphase for the patients (both sexes) was 10.4 +/- 4.2 which was significantly higher (P less than 0.01) than the mean SCE(More)
Bone marrow cells explanted after the host animal has been exposed to chemicals can be assayed in vitro for cytogenetic damage. Cells were grown in medium for two cell cycles in the presence of 5-bromodeoxyuridine and then analyzed for the frequency of sister chromatid exchanges and cell replication kinetics. The patterns for induction of these endpoints as(More)
It was aimed to evaluate the immunological effects of cold and hot aqueous extracts of H. sabdariffa calyces in albino mice. Three oral doses (9.78, 19.56 and 29.34 mg/mouse for cold extract, and 13.72, 27.44 and 41.16 mg/mouse for hot extract) of each extract were evaluated, in addition to the immune suppressive drug etoposide (0.05 mg/mouse/day) and(More)
Chromosomal aberrations and sister chromatid exchange (SCE) frequencies were studied in peripheral blood lymphocytes from 10 patients with Schistosoma mansoni prior to initiation of chemotherapy. The mean frequencies of chromatid and chromosome breaks for the patients were 1.80 and 2.30%, respectively, which were significantly higher (P less than 0.01) than(More)
Cytogenetic analysis was performed on blood lymphocytes from 46 healthy radiographers exposed to an annual dose of X-rays below the Maximum Permissible Occupational Limit (MPOL 5 rem/year) for a period ranging from 6 months to 26 years. Total chromosomal aberrations including dicentric and ring forms was 10.18%, which was significantly higher (P less than(More)
Sister-chromatid exchange (SCE) frequencies were studied in blood lymphocytes from 12 patients (3 females and 9 males) with Down's syndrome (DS). The mean frequency of SCE per metaphase for the patients (both sexes) was 9.2 +/- 0.8 which was significantly higher (P less than 0.01) than the mean SCE value (5.1 +/- 0.2) scored for 16 healthy infants (8(More)
Sister chromatid exchange (SCE) frequencies and other cytogenetic parameters were investigated in peripheral blood lymphocytes from 92 subjects comprising 44 parents of malformed offspring or repeated fetal wastage (Group I) and 48 controls, age and sex matched, having normal reproductive health (Group II). The karyotypes were normal and the mean mitotic(More)
