All patients had abnormal counts. Damage was related to both daily dose and duration of therapy and was occurring at a greater rate than its repair. The patient who had been treated the longest and had received the highest total dose also had the highest SCE count. He died from acute leukaemia. SCE analysis may… CONTINUE READING
