The measurements were performed with the semiautomatic image analysis system Leitz A.S.M. A more than 25% difference in size of the C-bands was more frequent in metaphases of the cancer group (43.8%) than in those of the control group (19.5%). In the cancer group smaller C-bands were found. Especially in the A2-chromosomes the C-bands… CONTINUE READING
