Enhancement of benzo[a]pyrene-induced sister chromatid exchanges in lymphocytes from cigarette smokers occupationally exposed to asbestos.

Abstract

The frequencies of base-line and benzo[a]pyrene [(BP) CAS 50-38-8]-induced sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) were measured in peripheral blood lymphocytes from 22 male asbestos-exposed workers and 10 nonexposed workers of comparable age. A clear association between cigarette smoking and asbestos exposure in the sensitivity of lymphocytes to BP was observed… (More)
