Aflatoxin-albumin adducts in peripheral blood provide a measure of exposure to aflatoxin over the previous 2-3 months. In the present study, the levels of these adducts were determined in a group of individuals from The Gambia, West Africa and were compared in a cross-sectional study to the levels of various cytogenetic alterations (chromosomal aberrations, micronuclei, sister chromatid exchanges) in the same individuals to test whether an increase in genetic damage is associated with an… CONTINUE READING
