The chromosomal investigations include a large number of clinical patients with a diverse variety of disorders, patients with suspected chromosomal disorders, patients with hematological and immunological diseases, normal individuals, and experimental subjects undergoing x-irradiation. Such studies serve to demonstrate that culturing the human lymphocyte is the method par excellence in surveying chromosomal abnormalities in large population groups, and in evaluating chromosomal damage from various environmental factors. The purpose of the study was to observe the spontaneous occurrence of chromosomal abnormalities in a control group of patients and to examine the differences that might occur in individuals exposed to x-rays.
