Assessment of cytogenetic aberrations and comet assay in colorectal adenocarcinomas.

PMID:  12908788     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
RESULTS: Cytogenetic evaluation of patients and controls revealed 10 abnormal karyotypes in patients with adenocarcinomas located in the rectum, sigmoid and rectosigmoid regions. Four had numerical and six had structural abnormalities.
CONCLUSIONS: Statistical analysis revealed a significant difference compared with controls (P <0.01). The karyotypes and the extent of DNA damage assessed by the comet assay were also significantly correlated with tumor stage (P <0.01) using the Kruskal-Wallis non-parametric test, while no statistical significance was observed in relation to patient age and smoking.
