The first objective of our study was to analyse whether biomarkers for genotoxic effects (DNA breaks and alkali-labile sites and micronucleus and non-disjunction frequencies) could be fully validated for biomonitoring workers chronically exposed to ionizing radiation (IR). Blood samples of controls and individuals chronically exposed to IR were analysed… CONTINUE READING
