Abstract

In vivo rodent cytogenetics may provide an important basis for an animal model for the assessment of the carcinogenic potential of antitumor drugs in man. In this paper, genotoxic alterations (i.e. sister chromatid exchanges and micronuclei) caused by different cytostatic protocols in CBA Ca mice are described. The strongest sister chromatid exchange inducing effects were shown by the ABVD (doxorubicin-dacarbazine-bleomycin-vinblastine) group and combinations containing cyclophosphamide. Compounds which affect the mitotic spindle induced only micronuclei, but not sister chromatid exchanges.
