Effect of chemotherapy on the lymph node and bone marrow cell chromosomes in patients with Hodgkin's disease.

Abstract

Chromosomal aberrations in bone marrow and lymph node cells have been investigated in 47 patients with lymphogranulomatosis 24--72 hr after administration of a single therapeutic dose of cyclophosphan and natulan. It is shown that the injurious action of cyclophosphan and natulan lasts more than 72 hr. An analysis of the dynamics of various types of chromosomal aberrations testifies that cyclophosphan and natulan affect cellular constituents found in the synthetic or post-synthetic phases of the cell cycle.
