Human peripheral blood lymphocytes were exposed to 300 rad gamma-rays, in the presence or absence of radical scavengers, and the change in the frequency of chromosome aberrations was analysed with attention directed to the protection by scavengers against the formation of primary damage leading to chromosome aberrations. The results showed that the damage… CONTINUE READING
