INTRODUCTION In the past decades, several authors have investigated the genotoxicity caused by exposure to chemicals, but there are no reports on studies analyzing such effects on children in Argentina. [...] Key MethodPOPULATION AND METHODS Fifty children living in the town of Marcos Juárez (Córdoba) at different distances from pesticide spraying areas and twenty-five children from the city of Río Cuarto (Córdoba), who are considered not exposed to pesticides, were studied; the micronucleus assay in buccal…Expand
Biomonitoring with Micronuclei Test in Buccal Cells of Female Farmers and Children Exposed to Pesticides of Maneadero Agricultural Valley, Baja California, Mexico
Feminization of the agricultural labor is common in Mexico; these women and their families are vulnerable to several health risks including genotoxicity. Previous papers have presented contradictoryExpand
Integrated study of genotoxicity biomarkers in schoolchildren and inhalable particles in areas under petrochemical influence.
TLDR
Results showed that the children are exposed to a mixture of contaminants from different sources, and that the proximity of the petrochemical industry gives a cause of concern, since air quality standards are not enough to ensure the exposed population health. Expand
Prevalence of chromosomal aberrations in Argentinean agricultural workers
TLDR
The results suggest the need for periodic biomonitoring of these biomarkers together with education and training of occupational workers for the safe application of potentially harmful pesticides. Expand
Risk Assessment of Occupational Exposure to Pesticides among Pesticide Distributors of Punjab (India) Using Single Cell Gel Electrophoresis
TLDR
A significant increase in the frequency of DNA damage was found in pesticide distributors from three cities in Punjab and an increasing trend in genetic damage was observed between the workers with increasing years of exposure as revealed by an ANOVA test. Expand

  • Genotoxicity - A Predictable Risk to Our Actual World

TLDR
Genotoxicity tests should be considered as indispensable tools in the implementation of a complete medical surveillance in people potentially exposed to various environmental pollutants and especially those who live in the same place with people who have already developed some type of neoplasia at early ages in order to prevent the occurrence of tumors of environmental origin and work-related. Expand
A study of DNA damage in buccal cells of consumers of well‐ and/or tap‐water using the comet assay: Assessment of occupational exposure to genotoxicants
TLDR
Taking into account the professions of well‐ and/or tap‐water consumers, agricultural workers exposed directly or indirectly (those not involved in fumigating) to agrochemicals showed greater genetic damage than controls, which persisted even when age, and whether the person smoked or consumed alcoholic drinks were considered. Expand
Micronuclei, reproduction and child health.
TLDR
A number of positive associations of MN frequencies as a marker of increased health risk in relation to reproduction as well as child health are revealed, supporting MN as a relevant biomarker for children health. Expand
Is micronucleus assay in oral exfoliated cells a suitable tool for biomonitoring children exposed to environmental pollutants? A systematic review
TLDR
The association between micronucleus frequency and exposure to environmental pollutants in oral exfoliated cells of children and the results regarding the cytogenetic damage induced by environmental pollutants are conflicting. Expand
Association between Cancer and Environmental Exposure to Glyphosate
Background: Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay farm transgenic seeds glyphosate resistant. Argentina annually utilizes 240,000 tonnes of glyphosate in agriculture. A change in the profile ofExpand
The use of genotoxicity biomarkers in molecular epidemiology: applications in environmental, occupational and dietary studies
TLDR
An overview of the potential for genotoxic effects assessment with the cytokinesis blocked micronucleus assay and comet assay in environmental and occupational scenarios, including diet is given. Expand

ASSESSING THE GENOTOXIC RISK FOR MEXICAN CHILDREN WHO ARE IN RESIDENTIAL PROXIMITY TO AGRICULTURAL AREAS WITH INTENSE AERIAL PESTICIDE APPLICATIONS
TLDR
The MN assay in exfoliated cells was useful, and a minimally invasive method was followed for monitoring cytogenetic damage in the children who live in residential proximity to areas of intensive agriculture treated with large amounts of pesticide mixtures. Expand
Micronucleus Assay as a Biomarker of Genotoxicity in the Occupational Exposure to Agrochemicals in Rural Workers
TLDR
Micronucleus assay allows an early detection of populations at higher risk of having genetic damage, allowing us to implement strategies of intervention for the purpose of contributing to reduce that risk. Expand
Chromosomal aberrations in peripheral blood lymphocytes from native Andean women and children from northwestern Argentina exposed to arsenic in drinking water.
TLDR
The data obtained clearly indicate a highly significant increase in the frequency of MN and of trisomy in lymphocytes from exposed children and women in comparison with controls, but no notable effects were found on the frequencies of SCEs, specific translocations, or on cell cycle progression. Expand
Genotoxic evaluation of workers employed in pesticide production.
TLDR
The findings indicate that occupational exposure to pesticides could cause genome damage in somatic cells as assessed by the chromosomal aberration assay and the micronucleus test. Expand
Micronuclei in neonates and children: effects of environmental, genetic, demographic and disease variables.
TLDR
Despite the recent progress in MN assay in children, more studies are warranted to establish the relationship between MN in lymphocytes and exfoliated cells, to clarify sex, age and genotype differences in baseline MN levels and the changes in response to genotoxicants. Expand
Genotoxicity of pesticides: a review of human biomonitoring studies.
TLDR
The majority of studies on cytogenetic biomarkers in pesticide-exposed workers have indicated some dose-dependent effects, with increasing duration or intensity of exposure, but data at present on the effect of genetic polymorphism on susceptibility to pesticides does not allow any conclusion.

BIOMARCADORES DE DAÑO GENÉTICO EN POBLACIONES HUMANAS EXPUESTAS A PLAGUICIDAS Biomarkers of Genetic Damage in Human Populations Exposed to Pesticides
TLDR
Genotoxicity tests, including that include chromosomal aberrations, micronucleous, sister chromatid exchanges and comet assays, should be considered as essential tools in the implementation of complete medical supervision for people exposed to potential environmental pollutants, particularly for those living in the same place as others who where others have already developed some type of malignancy.

Genotoxicity of AMPA, the environmental metabolite of glyphosate, assessed by the Comet assay and cytogenetic tests.
TLDR
AMPA was genotoxic in the three performed tests and rendered significant statistical increases at 200-400mg/kg in vivo and in vivo through the micronucleus test in mice. Expand
Aberraciones cromosómicas en trabajadores rurales de la Provincia de Córdoba expuestos a plaguicidas
TLDR
A preview genotoxic biomonitoring was carried out from a random sample in workers daily exposed to pesticides in Cordoba, showing the risk factor that represents pesticides exposure to human health in the studied group, compared with the reference group. Expand
IPCS guidelines for the monitoring of genotoxic effects of carcinogens in humans. International Programme on Chemical Safety.
TLDR
The most often studied genotoxicity endpoints have been selected and they are structural and numerical chromosomal aberrations assessed using cytogenetic methods, DNA damage assessed using bio-chemical/electrophoretic assays or sister chromatid exchanges, and hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT) mutations.
