Background: Benzathine penicillin G (BPG) is a widely used antibiotic for treatment or prophylaxis of certain infectious diseases. Previous in vivo studies using sister chromatid exchange (SCE) frequency and comet assay, had showed that long-term administration of benzathine penicillin G may cause some degree of DNA damage in children with rheumatic fever.
