Cytogenetic markers (chromosomal aberrations, sister chromatid exchanges (SCE), cells with high frequency of SCE (HFC), the heterogeneity index SCE (SCE-H) and genetic polymorphism of genotypes GSTM1 and NAT2 were evaluated in the peripheral lymphocytes of 64 coke oven workers and 34 control subjects from the same plant.
