Abstract

The frequencies of chromosomal aberrations and of micronuclei were determined in lymphocyte cultures of 25 patients who attempted suicide with diazepam, 6-12 h, 72 h and 30 days after self-poisoning. These data were compared with those of healthy controls. The frequencies of numerical aberrations showed a significant increase immediately after self-poisoning. However, this effect could not be detected on the 3rd and 30th days after self-poisoning.
