Cytogenetic effects in human as the result of the Chernobyl accident

Title variants
Languages of publication
The Chernobyl accident significantly complicated the ecological situation in Ukraine. The existing environmental pollution, which was already rooted in the background, ensures for the most part that the Ukrainian population comes into contact with one of the most powerful universal mutagens - ionizing radiation. This can cause genetic damage in all living beings, including human. As such, it is essential that the Chernobyl accident victims be medically monitored using cytogenetic monitoring – the study of the frequency and spectrum of chromosome aberrations in human peripheral blood lymphocytes with the help of classical (conventional cytogenetics, G-banding analysis) and new (FISHWCP) research methods.
