Does Beta-Carotene Prevent Cancer? A Critical Appraisal
(Nutrition Research, 1988)
The possible role of beta-carotene as a protective nutrient against cancer is reviewed. Human prospective and retrospective studies strongly indicate that beta-carotene protects against lung cancer and probably against ...
Dietary fibre and the mouse colon: its influence on luminal pH, reducing activity, bile acid binding and cell proliferation.
(Cancer Letters, 1988)
Female, Swiss mice were fed semi-synthetic diets for 33 days. The diets were fibre-free (FF) or supplemented with corn bran (CB) 12°~, wheat bran (WB) 12%, alfalfa (AL) 12oh, pectin (P) BOh, cellulose (CL) 6%, or lignin ...
Biochemical status of vitamin A in colorectal cancer
(Journal of Clinical Biochemistry and Nutrition, 1990-10)
Serum vitamin A and its carrier proteins, retinol-binding protein and prealbumin, were measured in 41 colorectal cancer patients, 40 patients with benign colorectal disease, and 31 healthy subjects. Serum samples were ...
International Survey Data
(Trends in Biochemistry Science, 1976)
Strategies of subcellular fractionation suitable for analysis of peroxisomes and microperoxisomes of animal tissues.
(International Journal of Biochemistry, 1983)
Strategies of subcellular fractionation are reviewed from the perspective of their utility in the analysis of peroxisomes. The considerable potential inherant in the method of rate dependent banding In zonal rotors is ...
High fat and nutrient depleted diets and the metabolic profile of feces and colon mucosa of mice.
(Journal of Nutrition, Growth and Cancer, 1987)
Swiss and C57BL/1 mice were fed one of the folio wing diets: commercial laboratory chow (5.5 percent fat) or chow with added starch and/or corn oil so as 10 supply a fat level of 5.5 or 23 percent, while reducing the ...
High fat diets and mouse colon mucosal membranes: a centrifugation study.
(Cancer Letters, 1983)
Female Swiss mice were fed on a control diet (laboratory chow, 6% fat) or high fat diets (laboratory chow with added fat, principally corn oil, to produce a fat content of 16% or 23%). Homogenate of colon mucosa ...
Cabbage and vitamin E: their effect on colon tumor formation in mice.
(Cancer Letters, 1987)
The effects of cabbage and vitamin E on colon carcinogenesis were investigated in Swiss mice treated with 1,2-dimethylhydrazine. Throughout the experiment the mice were fed a laboratory chow diet (46 mg vitamin E per ...
Simplicity - the key to fruitful medical research
(Medical Hypotheses, 1985)
Medical research is here divided -into two broad categories. The great majority of research is "complex" and includes all studies of intricate body mechanisms. A minority of research is "simple" and deals mainly ...
