Genotoxicity study in lymphocytes of workers in wooden furniture industry



Genotoxicity study in lymphocytes of workers in wooden furniture industry



Current Science 82(7): 869-873



We have evaluated the extent of genetic damage (frequencies of sister chromatid exchange (SCE) and micronuclei) in blood lymphocytes and found a correlation between exposure period and genetic damage, in workers in the wooden furniture industry. Venous blood samples were drawn from thirty non-smoking workers exposed to wood dust and thirty non-smoking controls. Lymphocytes were cultured for 72 h and at the end of the culture time the cells were harvested, stained and coded for blind scoring.
