Human exposure to genotoxic agents has dramatically increased. Both endogenous (reactive species generated during physiological and pathological processes) and exogenous (UV light, ionizing radiation, alkylating agents, antimetabolites and topoisomerase inhibitors, air, water and food pollutants) factors can impair genomic stability. The cumulative DNA damage causes mutations involved in the development of cancer and other disorders (neuromuscular and neurodegenerative diseases, immune… CONTINUE READING
