Chromosomal damage and polymorphisms of DNA repair genes XRCC1 and XRCC3 in workers exposed to chromium.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Welders, chronically exposed to hexavalent chromium, may exhibit disturbances in chromosomal integrity. Our study investigates chromosomal damage related to chromium exposure, considering the role of polymorphisms in relevant DNA repair genes. METHODS 39 male welders exposed to chromium for 10.2+/-1.67 years and 31 male controls were assayed… (More)
