Viral pesticides : biohazard evaluation on the cytogenetic level.

Abstract

Promising agents for integrated pest control are naturally occuring insect pathogenic viruses that belong to the group of baculoviruses. We have performed experiments using mammalian cells from different species in vivo and in vitro to test a possible effect of baculoviruses on chromosome aberration rates and sister chromatid exchanges. No cytogenetic effects were found.
