Cytogenetic Studies in Animals
It is clearly impossible to provide a detailed discussion of all the possible areas of research encompassed by the title of this presentation. The intention is to provide some indication of the types of cytogenetic assays that can be performed in order to indicate the clastogenic potential of an agent, whether the data obtained can reasonably be used to estimate the potential genetic or carcinogenic risk to man, and the possible ways in which results can be misinterpreted or over-interpreted.
