The Immunological And Cytogenetic Effects of Cars Exhaust on Exposed People
Engineering and Technology Journal,
2010, Volume 28, Issue 9, Pages 444-453
AbstractThis investigation which was extended from Jan – Nov (2008) aimed to
study the effects of cars smoke on the immunological and genetic parameters for
(30) people exposed to cars smoke, their ages were ranging from (20-45) years
compared with (15) rare exposed people as negative controls.
Cytogenetic parameters were showed significant increase in the mitotic
index (MI), blastogenic index (BI), and chromosomal aberrations (CA), in exposed
The immune stimulus was decreased significantly in exposed group by
reducing the phagocytic percent and Phagocytic Index, the total count of W.B.C.
were decreased significantly in the exposed people as well as the hemoglobin
concentration as compared with rare exposed people, while the differential count of
W.B.C. showed decreasing in both of the lymphocytes and monocytes while the
eosenophile raised in number in exposed people.
