The cytogenetic effect in a group of settlers from a 30-kilometer area of right of way

Pilinskaia M.A., Dybskiy S.S., Red’ko D.V.

 




One of the critical human group of potential risk is the group of population from 30-km zone around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The cytogenetical examination of 12 persons (8 man, 4 woman, 30-60 years old) from 5 villages situated in north-west and south-east directions from the ChNPP in the frame of this zone was conducted. The data of the conventional analysis showed relatively low cytogenetic effects comparable with the effects in exposed people out of the zone (the mean level of unstable cytogenetic markers in different villages was 0.21-0.35 per 100 cells). The level of stable translocations in one case (woman, 59 years old) determined using FISH (16.62 per 100 cells for the whole genome) exceeded their spontaneous aged frequency and confirmed the high sensitivity of this method for the evaluation of real radiation exposure.
