CHROMOSOMAL ABERRATION IN HEALTHY PERSONS

Blood white cells of healthy individuals may contain non-recurrent, random chromosomal aberrations (CAs), which disappear with cell turnover as they provide no growth advantage. These include chromatid breaks, fragmented or missing parts of chromosomes and fusions resulting in dicentric and ring chromosomes. These nonspecific CAs have been used in monitoring of occupational populations exposed to potential carcinogenic chemicals and radiation.
