OBJECTIVES This study investigated whether: (i) rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients have more micronuclei (MN) than healthy controls; (ii) methotrexate (MTX) treated RA patients have more MN than those not using MTX, and (iii) folic acid supplementation decreases the number of MN in MTX treated patients. METHODS MN assays were performed in oral mucosa sweeps of 50 consecutive MTX treated RA patients, 30 consecutive RA patients not receiving MTX and 39 healthy controls. MTX treated RA patients… Expand
Assessment of Cytotoxicity and Genotoxicity in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis and its Relation to Disease Activity and Medications
TLDR
Cytotoxicity of MTX was illustrated by the significant increase in the number of satellite association, and cells with aneuploidy when compared to the NSAIDs group, so suggesting that cytotoxicity and genotoxicity are manifestations of RA disease itself. Expand
Effects of infliximab on sister chromatid exchanges and chromosomal aberration in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
The data show that the use of infliximab has not a genotoxic effect in patients with RA, and infliximab treatment, for 24 weeks, did not increase the cytogenetic biomarkers in Patients with RA. Expand
Cytotoxicity And Genotoxicity In Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Dual Effect Of Disease And Drugs.
Eiman Soliman. Introduction/ Objectives: to assess cytotoxicity and genotoxicity in RA and the possible cyto and genotoxic effects of some DMARDs used in treatment. Methods: The study included 30Expand
Methotrexate-induced cytotoxicity and genotoxicity in germ cells of mice: intervention of folic and folinic acid.
TLDR
FA and FNA are reported to ameliorate the germ cell toxicity of MTX in mice as evident from the decreased sperm head abnormalities, seminiferous tubule damage, sperm DNA damage, TUNEL positive cells and increased sperm counts. Expand
Comet assay and analysis of micronucleus formation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
The results suggest that increased DNA damage may play an important role in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis. Expand
Micronucleus Analysis in Behçet ’ s Disease With and Without HLA-B 51 HLA-B 51
Objective: Genetic factors are considered to play important roles in the development of Behçet’s disease (BD). Micronuleus (MN) assay is a sensitive indicator of caused genomic damage. Our aim was toExpand
Micronuclei in diabetes: folate supplementation diminishes micronuclei in diabetic patients but not in an animal model.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that diabetes results in elevated frequencies of micronuclei, and that, at least in humans, FA can protect against the elevation. Expand
Clinical application of micronucleus test in exfoliated buccal cells: A systematic review and metanalysis.
TLDR
A potential usefulness of the MN assay applied in buccal exfoliated cells in the prescreening and in the follow up of precancerous oral lesions is evidences, and the application of the cytome approach providing information of genotoxic, cytotoxic and cytostatic effects is suggestive of the possibility of an improvement in the predictive value of the assay.

Genotoxic Effect in Autoimmune Diseases Evaluated by the Micronucleus Test Assay: Our Experience and Literature Review
TLDR
A review of work and other published papers concerning genotoxic effect in AD, identified by means of the MN assay is presented, with the aim of proposing this tool as a possible early biomarker for genot toxic damage, which is a consequence of disease progression. Expand
Correlation Between the Oral Manifestations of Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients on Different Treatments with The Clinical Disease Activity
TLDR
The oral dryness, tempromandibular joint disorders and aphthous ulcerations were the main oral manifestations found in rheumatoid arthritis patients. Expand

Inhibition of methotrexate-induced chromosomal damage by folinic acid in V79 cells.
TLDR
Results indicate that FA is capable of reducing the cytogenetic damage induced by MTX and appears to be an anticlastogenic agent. Expand
The micronucleus test using peripheral blood reticulocytes from methotrexate-treated mice.
TLDR
The induction of micronuclei by methotrexate (MTX) was examined in two laboratories using mouse peripheral blood reticulocytes to find a more sensitive target for themicronucleus test in peripheral blood. Expand
Lymphoproliferative cancer and other malignancy in patients with rheumatoid arthritis treated with azathioprine: a 20 year follow up study.
TLDR
Results from a possibly unique series of patients treated with high dose azathioprine give some reassurance about the magnitude of the previously postulated carcinogenic risk of such treatment in RA. Expand
Induction of micronuclei in peripheral blood lymphocytes of patients treated for rheumatoid or osteo-arthritis of the knee with dysprosium-165 hydroxide macroaggregates or yttrium-90 silicate.
TLDR
In the majority of patients from each treatment group no significant increase in micronucleus frequency was observed, indicating that in these cases leakage of material from the site of treatment was not resulting in detectable irradiation of circulating cells irrespective of the choice of radiopharmaceutical. Expand
Mechanism of induction of micronuclei and chromosome aberrations in mouse bone marrow by multiple treatments of methotrexate.
TLDR
The multiple-dose effects of MTX on the induction of micronuclei and chromosomal aberrations may be explained by the intracellular accumulation ofMTX resulting in an enhancement of enzyme inhibition. Expand
Rheumatoid arthritis and the risk of malignancy.
TLDR
In this cohort of RA patients, colorectal cancer was detected in only half the expected number of patients, and the overall risk of malignancy was reduced in this RA cohort, which may be related to long-term nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) use in RA. Expand
The micronucleus assay in exfoliated cells of the human buccal mucosa.
TLDR
It was found that gamma rays induced only micronuclei resulting from chromosome breaks, whose frequency increased linearly with the applied dose, and was lowered to the initial background level 7-12 days after the end of radiotherapy. Expand
Assessment of interactions of the antimalarial drugs chloroquine and mefloquine with NaNO2 and HgCl2 in rodents.
TLDR
Chloroquine and mefloquine are antimalarial drugs widely used in Brazil, especially in prospecting areas in the Amazonian region, and a slight induction of chromatid aberration frequencies occurred with NaNO2, particularly when associated with chloroquine. Expand
Use of the fluorescent micronucleus assay to detect the genotoxic effects of radiation and arsenic exposure in exfoliated human epithelial cells
The exfoliated cell micronucleus (MN) assay using fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) with a centromeric probe is a rapid method for determining the mechanism of MN formation in epithelialExpand
Micronuclei and other nuclear anomalies in buccal smears: a field test in snuff users.
TLDR
Until methods to better distinguish extranuclear bodies of different origins become available, investigators should use the revised protocol and should focus on agents not thought to be cytotoxic. Expand
