Effects of metals on chromosomes of higher organisms.
An analysis of the available data on the clastogenic effects of metals and their compounds on higher organisms indicates some general trends. Following chronic exposure to subtoxic doses, a decreaseExpand

Differential protection of chlorophyllin against clastogenic effects of chromium and chlordane in mouse bone marrow in vivo.
The anticlastogenic activity of sodium-copper-chlorophyllin was tested against two known clastogens, chromium(VI) oxide and the pesticide chlordane, both of which occur as environmental toxicants.Expand

Prevention of cytotoxic effects of arsenic by short-term dietary supplementation with selenium in mice in vivo.
Interaction between selenium and arsenic has been used to protect against the genotoxic effects of sodium arsenite through dietary intervention by an equivalent amount (1/10 LD50) of sodium selenite.Expand
