Study for the Liquid Chromatography-mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) Assessment of Oxidative DNA Damage in Relation to Antioxidant Usage

2014-08-27 03:17:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the basis for the reported good effects of antioxidant supplementation. A blood test using Mass Spectrometry will measure DNA damage which is expected to decrease with antioxidant administration and therefore decrease the risk of cancer.

Description

In this pilot study, the overall purpose is to establish the molecular basis for the hypothesis that oxidative stress is a risk factor for cancer. This will be achieved by establishing base line levels of oxidative DNA damage in a population of healthy individuals before and after taking antioxidant and mineral supplements for 8 weeks.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions.
