Abstract : The chromosomes of peripheral leucocytes in subjects exposed to more than 2500 R of x-irradiation were compared with those of normal, healthy individuals and several other subjects not exposed to x-irradiation. The results revealed that in the irradiated group there was a marked increase in aneuploidy, polyploidy, endoreduplication and structural chromosomal damage. (Author)
