Abstract: A cross-sectional study was performed to find out the medical drawbacks including oxidative stress, immunological and genotoxic health hazards among Alfa cypermethrin pesticide (CYP) exposed production workers. The study is including 200 workers divided into 3 groups according to the level of exposure. Highly exposed group (50), moderately exposed group (50) and unexposed group (100). All workers were subjected to detailed laboratory investigation for gene p53 mutations, immunological parameters as CD3 %, CD4 % and CD8 % in addition to peripheral blood total leukocytic and platelet counts were measured. Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), Catalase (CAT), Glutathione (GSH) and Glutathione Peroxidase (GLx) were measured. Air samples were collected with a High Volume Small Surface Sampler for measurement of cypermethrin level.
