A method for assessment of cytogenetic damage in man. Studies of the cytogenetic evolution in breast cancer have suggested that a highly aneuploid state could originate from a polyploidization event concurrent with a gradual loss of individual chromosome copies We think you have liked this presentation. The most substantiated include: The median duration of follow-up was 8. Citing articles via Web of Science Fusion genes and rearranged genes as a linear function of chromosome aberrations in cancer.

Chromosomal aberrations in lymphocytes predict human cancer independently from exposure to carcinogens. Slides are air dried, fixed and stained in a Giemsa solution.

These include the large inter-laboratory variability of MN frequency which is most likely due to technical differences in slide preparation and scoring, the heterogeneous quality of data on genotoxic exposures such as cigarette smoking and occupational carcinogens or the availability of a single measure of MN per individual which may have resulted in misclassification among MN frequency levels.

A portion of medium is discarded and cells can be collected. All these potential sources of discrepancy—including the intrinsic limitation due to measurement of MN in a surrogate tissue—may have weakened the observed association between MN and cancer incidence. Differential effectiveness of solar UVB subcomponents in causing cell death, oncogenic transformation and micronucleus induction in human hybrid cells. Telomere dysfunction and evolution of intestinal carcinoma in mice and humans.

The most commonly studied exposures were to ionizing radiation subjectspesticides subjectspolycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons subjects organic solvents subjects and cytostatic drugs subjects. Measurement of micronucleus MN frequency in peripheral blood lymphocytes PBL is extensively used in molecular epidemiology and cytogenetics to evaluate the presence and the extent of chromosomal damage in human populations exposed to genotoxic agents or bearing a susceptible genetic profile 1.


Our findings confirm the predictive role of chromosome anomalies but they do not provide definitive evidence concerning the role of aneuploidy. STATA software was used for all statistical analyses Removing the first 2 years of follow-up which most likely are affected by undiagnosed cancers from the statistical analysis, did not change the risk estimates 13 cancer cases occurred within this time frame.

The results from the present study provide preliminary evidence that MN frequency in PBL is a predictive biomarker of cancer risk within a population of healthy subjects. Collection of 1 ml culture Centrifugation at rpm for 1 minute Red cells break lysis buffer for 7 minutes 3 washing steps Hypotonic treatment 15 min. The possible association of lymphocyte MN frequency with cancer risk has earlier been examined in Swedish and Italian cohorts 1516although no conclusions could be drawn from those studies because of the young age of the cohorts and the small number of events 18 cancer cases and 9 cancer deaths.

Relative risk of cancer incidence and mortality by MN frequency and cancer site. These considerations give mechanistic support to a possible causal association between MN frequency and the risk of cancer. Share buttons are a little bit lower. Elevated levels of MN are indicative of defects in DNA repair and chromosome segregation which could result in generation of daughter cells with altered gene dosage, or deregulation of gene expression that could lead to the evolution of the chromosome instability phenotype often seen in cancer 1291013 Formation of nuclear anomalies such as MN, chromosomal rearrangements and anaphase bridges leading to breakage-fusion-bridge cycles and generation of more MN are events commonly seen in the early stages of carcinogenesis 426 The international collaborative HUMN project was developed to improve knowledge of the biology and relevance of MN induction and its application to human population studies 1.

CarcinogenesisVolume 28, Issue 3, 1 MarchPages —, https: In conclusion, this study provides preliminary evidence that MN frequency in PBL is predictive of cancer risk, suggesting that increased MN formation is associated with early events in carcinogenesis.


The HUman MicroNucleus project—an international collaborative study on the use of the micronucleus technique for measuring DNA damage in humans. While a residual confounding due to occupational exposure to mutagens or smoking status is still possible as shown by the small difference between adjusted and unadjusted relative risk estimatesstatistical analysis showed a lack of effect modification, i.

The cohorts investigated in this study were different from those that were previously studied to determine the relationship between CA in PBL and cancer risk 15— This is also supported by a recent paper indicating that specific chromosomal rearrangements play a micronnuclei not only in haematological malignancies but also in non-haematological malignancies, and that there may be no fundamental tissue-specific differences in the genetic mechanisms by which neoplasia is initiated Abstract The frequency of micronuclei MN in peripheral blood lymphocytes PBL is extensively used as a biomarker of chromosomal damage and genome stability in human populations.

Seventy subjects included in the cohort were tested more than once.

Effects of oral administration of N -acetyl- l -cysteine: On micgonuclei other hand, this approach has also introduced a number of limitations. Altogether, 20 laboratories from 10 countries, that were measuring MN frequency in human populations as a routine procedure, submitted databases that fulfilled the inclusion criteria, and all were included in the study.

The dataset from Sweden was produced using a different protocol, and MN were scored in mononuclear lymphocytes 21but this difference did not influence the statistical analysis of data. Connecting mitotic instability and chromosome aberrations in cancer—can mirconuclei bridge the gap?
