A considerable number of mutagenes have been shown to be carcinogenic. Therefore it is useful to detect mutagenes through simple, rapid tests such as the Ames test1. Carum carvi is one of the herbal plants widely used in Iranian traditional medicine. In this paper, the mutagenic activity of this plant is investigated using the Ames.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
