Cellular Mutagenicity and Heavy Metal Concentrations of Leachates Extracted from the Fly and Bottom Ash Derived from Municipal Solid Waste Incineration
The biotoxicity of leachates from recycled ash should be routinely monitored before reusing the ash to partially affirms the safety of the fly and bottom ash produced by certain incinerators.
Genotoxicity and mutagenicity of solid waste leachates: A review
There is need for a shift from waste disposal to sustainable waste management and awareness on possible health impacts or consequences of exposure to solid waste should also be created through health education.
Mutagenicity and genotoxicity of coal fly ash water leachate.
DNA and oxidative damage induced in somatic organs and tissues of mouse by municipal sludge leachate
The finding demonstrates that the MSL induces DNA damage in the somatic tissues and organs of mouse as well as induces oxidative stress in the liver, of relevance to public health; as such exposure could lead to adverse health effects via systemic genotoxicity.
Methods for Genotoxicity Testing of Environmental Pollutants
Newer technologies such as transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics provide the opportunity to gain insight into genotoxic mechanisms and also to provide new markers in vitro and in vivo.
Temporal trends and risk assessment of polychlorinated biphenyls and heavy metals in a solid waste site in Taizhou, China
The results of the reporter gene assay showed that soil extracts from S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, and S9 exhibited potential estrogenic activities, and a comparison of the data showed that the PCB pollution in some sites of this area was still serious.


Genotoxicity of hazardous leachates from solid wastes evaluated for environmental impact with the Ames test
Fourteen series of toxic wastes from various origins (metallurgy, chemical industries, incinerators, industrial treatment plants, etc.) have been studied for their genotoxic properties with the
Genetic risk assessment of acid waste water containing heavy metals.
It is concluded that heavy metals might be responsible for the genotoxic/cancerogenic potential of the test water and the possibility that its genotoxicity might be promoted by its high acidity.

Though the rec assay with Bacillus subtilis and the reversion assay with Escherichia coli were used to assess the mutagenicity of some heavy metals, the present communication reports the results in determining the Mutagenicity and carcinogenicity of ten heavy metals commonly found in polluted areas by using the Salmonella/mammalian-microsome mutagenic test.
