Sister Chromatid Exchange in Phytohemagglutinin-Stimulated Lymphocytes of Nonfamilial Cutaneous Malignant Melanoma Patients
The relationship between sister chromatid exchange (SCE) and DNA damage or carcinogenesis has been the subject of numerous investigations (1–6). Altered frequencies of SCEs have been reported in cancer patients (7–13), but their meaning with regard to cancer development has not yet been elucidated.
