ABSTRACT
The micronuclei assay in bone marrow is easily to reproduce and its offer clear information on the cellular proliferation in bone marrow. This system allow registering in vivo the capacity of the chemical substances to induce chromosomics ruptures to interfere or the chromosomes metaphases migration during the mitosis of the somatic cells. In this article wedecide to evaluate the Sprague Dawley rats in both sexes as biomodel in the induction of micronuclei in bone marrow cells by cyclophosphamide and bleomycin. Which were formed 5 experimental groups per sex, the first administered with NaCl 0,9 % by intraperitoneal (i.p) route, the second and third groups were administered with cyclophosphamide by i.p route,with designs of different treatments at doses of 50 mg/kg. The fourth and fifth groups were administered with bleomycin by i.p route, equally in two designs of different treatments at doses of 40 mg/kg. At the end of the experience obtained higher results of the micronucleis inductions with the use of cyclophosphamide was administered 48 and 24 hours beforesacrifice in SD rats of both sexes. That which constitutes in our experimental conditions the best experimental design to induce the micronucleis formation in bone marrow cells of rodents, increasing considerably the spontaneous frequency to present in this species of rat, useful in evaluation studies on in vivo antigenotoxic drugs effects.
