 Abstract

This study was performed randomly on 40 individuals selected within a specific period, between January 2014 to October 2014 in order to a certain whether or not a sample of chemical weapons used on Shekh Wasan and Balisan valley on 16 April 1987, have incurred genetic damage. The study showed that the chromosomal aberration is a very sensitive and widely applied assay used as a bioindicator of genetic damage induced by an environmental agent or clastogen.  In the current study a group of 40 chemical bombardment survivors there were 15 individuals have different types of chromosome aberrations, including (ring chromosome 52.5%, dicentric chromosome 30%, chromosome break with fragment 57.5%, chromatid interchange (quadriradial) 27.5%, chromatid interchange (triradial) 27.5%.

Keywords: Chromosomal Abberation; Chemical Weapons; Clastogen.
