AIM To validate the predictive value of micronuclei (MN) in peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) and glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs) polymorphisms (GSTM1 and GSTT1) for mortality risk (MR) of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). METHODS Blood samples from 1650 healthy subjects selected from the general population were collected between June 1991 and November 1993, and slides were immediately prepared for MN assessment. The vital status, or the cause of death, was monitored for all subjects until… CONTINUE READING
