My presentations Profile Feedback Log out. The buffy coat is transferred in a sterile tube and diluted 1: The results from the present study support the hypothesis that MN frequency in PBL is a predictive biomarker of cancer risk. The limited impact of confounding due to variables that affected MN frequency i. Irew genes and rearranged genes as a linear function of chromosome aberrations in cancer.

STATA software was used for all statistical analyses Feedback Privacy Policy Feedback. Furthermore, genome damage-induced cell death has been found in many other diseases, such as neurodegenerative disease 35which could also explain the plateau effect given that association with other degenerative disease was not explored. Abstract The frequency of micronuclei MN in peripheral blood lymphocytes PBL is extensively used as a biomarker of chromosomal damage and genome stability in human populations.

Auth mcironuclei social network: All these potential sources of discrepancy—including the intrinsic limitation due to measurement of MN in a surrogate tissue—may have weakened the observed association between MN and cancer incidence. To test the hypothesis that PBL MN are predictive of increased cancer risk, we assembled a large international cohort of subjects whose lymphocytes had been screened for MN frequency between and and who were free of cancer at the time of testing.

In order to standardize for the marked inter-laboratory variability see Table I MN frequency was categorized by tertiles of the laboratory-specific distributions, i.

Only individual MN frequencies based on the scoring of at least interphase cells were considered for statistical analysis. The study was conducted within the framework of the HUman MicroNucleus project HUMNan international collaborative project, which allowed gathering of data on individuals studied in 20 cytogenetics laboratories from 10 countries 1. Elevated levels of MN are indicative of defects in DNA repair and chromosome segregation which could result in generation of daughter cells with altered gene dosage, or deregulation of gene expression that could lead to the evolution of the chromosome instability phenotype often seen in cancer 1291013 Seventy subjects included in the cohort were tested more than once.

Micronuclei micrpnuclei lymphocytes with preserved cytoplasm. Collection of 1 ml culture Centrifugation at rpm for 1 minute Red mirconuclei break lysis buffer for 7 minutes 3 washing steps Hypotonic treatment 15 min. The most frequent cancer sites were colon and rectum 37stomach 35lung 28 and breast 20mostly contributed by Japan, Italy and Sweden where the person-years were the largest and the mean ages of the cohorts were the highest.

Our findings confirm the predictive role of chromosome anomalies but they do not provide definitive evidence concerning the role of aneuploidy. RR estimated by negative binomial regression analysis.

The first goal is easier to achieve, and plans already exist within the framework of the HUMN project for increasing the size of mivronuclei study group, by both including new national cohorts and extending the length of the follow-up period for those cohorts currently included in the study. Telomere dysfunction and evolution of intestinal carcinoma in mice and humans.

The strengths of this study include the relatively large size of the study group, the same direction of risk estimates in all countries, and the independence of results from the time elapsed between Iera testing and cancer diagnosis.

These considerations give mechanistic support to a possible causal association between MN frequency and the risk of cancer. On the difference of micronucleus frequencies in peripheral blood lymphocytes between breast cancer patients and controls.

The authors have no declared conflict of interest. The protocol for lymphocyte separation starting from a buffy coat obtained by the transfusion unit of a hospital micronucleei shown.

A resolution of this issue may result from future studies designed to distinguish between these mechanisms using centromere and telomere detection in MN, and including measurement of nucleoplasmic bridges which are a marker of misrepair micronhclei DNA lesions and telomere end-fusion 928 Fenech at CSIRO to compare the baseline MN frequency from different labs irez among different populations to compare different techniques to define a standard protocol to evaluate the suitability of MN as biomarker of risk for diseases such as cancer Kanazawa, BEMS To standardize for the inter-laboratory variability subjects were classified according to the percentiles of MN distribution within each laboratory as low, medium or high frequency.
