    European Meeting of Environmental Hygiene. Prague (CZE), 1995/06/27.

    The frequency of hypoxanthine guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT) mutations was determined in human T-lymphocytes isolated from peripheral blood of three populations : (1) 24 employees occupationally exposed to vinyl chloride monomer ; (2) 23 healthy non-exposed matched control individuals and (3) 41 regular blood donors.

    In addition, mutant clones of all studied groups were examined by multiplex-PCR for visible abnormalities of the gene (large deletions).

    Surprisingly, the mutation frequency of all three investigated populations was approximately the same (7-8 x 10-6).

    However, great differences occurred for the spectrum of mutants.

    Among the mutant clones of the non-exposed healthy individuals only 6% (blood donors) and 11% (matched control group) showed large deletions.

    The corresponding percentage of large deletions in the occupationally exposed group was, at 21%, much higher.
