Access from EThOS:
There is considerable supportive evidence to suggest that increased levels of DNA damage are associated with an increased risk of developing neoplastic lesions in the human colon and rectum. Within this thesis, several different topics related to DNA damage were explored in detail, principally using the single cell gel electrophoresis assay (the comet assay) to measure DNA damage both in cell line studies and in human colorectal mucosal biopsies from patients undergoing routine endoscopic examinations of the colon and rectum.
