The formation of micronuclei may ultimately result in aneuploidy induction, an effect that could have severe consequences in humans. However, the doses of ABZ and SOABZ at which these effects were observed are several orders of magnitude higher than those found in the plasma of treated individuals. Because there are other mechanisms by which aneuploidy can be induced at even lower doses than micronuclei, i.e., chromosome nondisjunction, it is necessary to evaluate this effect in exposed individuals.
