Ionic (diatrizoate, ioxaglate) and nonionic (iohexol, iosimide, iopromide, and iotrolan) contrast media (CM) were evaluated for their cytogenetic effects in lymphocytes. Heparinized blood was mixed with culture medium RPMI-1640 supplemented with phytohemagglutinin, fetal calf serum, and antibiotics. Plastic tubes containing blood samples were incubated at 37 degrees C in 5% CO2 humidified air for 48 hours. To these cultures, increasing amounts of CM were added and cells incubated for an… CONTINUE READING
