A study of chromosomal aberrations in miners exposed to diesel exhausts.

by Nordenson I, Sweins A, Dahlgren E, Beckman L

A study was made of chromosome aberrations in cultured lymphocytes from a group of 14 miners exposed to diesel exhausts and a reference group of office employees and construction workers. No increased frequency of chromosomal aberrations was observed. The frequency of chromosomal aberrations (both gaps and breaks) was, however, found to be associated with smoking.
