Abstract

To assess DNA damage remaining in peripheral lymphocytes, 48 individuals were evaluated twice for lymphocyte micronucleus frequencies by the cytokinesis-blocking cytochalasin B (CBMN) analysis post relocation from radio-contaminated apartments after various periods of time. The frequencies of CBMN at the first evaluation were significantly higher than those at the second examination (Chang et al., 1999c). These individuals were categorized into three groups: those with cumulative exposure of>300 mSv (defined as high exposure, HDose), those with 100-300 mSv (MDose) and those with
