Micronucleus frequency in epidemiological studies of human exposure has become a preferred biomarker. A generally recognized observation is that micronucleus frequency increases with age. One requirement for comparison of data, which is being generated in many countries, is some common agreement about what constitutes a typical or normal background frequency of micronuclei. This is also a requirement when examining any individual value, especially one which might be considered an outlier. A… CONTINUE READING
