Objective: The objectives of this study were to assess cytokinesis-block micronucleus cytome (CBMN Cyt) assay parameters and also oxidative DNA damage in patients with active acromegaly and controls and to assess the relationship between age, serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) levels, pituitary adenoma diameters, 8-hydroxy-2 '-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) levels and CBMN Cyt assay parameters in patients with active acromegaly.
