Project: Study of the radiation damage in human populations, exposed to ionizing radiation using the micronucleus assay for peripheral blood lymphocytes.

project duration
31-DEC-99 – 31-DEC-99
The value of the micronucleus technique for peripheral blood lymphocytes as biological indicator of radiation damage and radiosensitivity test system will be evaluated based on a comparison with the chromosome aberration technique for a number of subpopulations of radiotherapy patiƫnts. The research program, based on a biological indicator of radiation damage, will allow an individual evaluation of the detrimental effects caused by exposure to ionizing radiation in prof.environm. and med.purpose
