Selenium compounds have disparate abilities to impose oxidative stress and induce apoptosis.
The cancer chemopreventive effect of selenium cannot be fully accounted for by the role of selenium as a component of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which suggests thatExpand

Inhibition of dietary fat-promoted colon carcinogenesis in rats by supplemental calcium or vitamin D3.
A 2 X 2 X 2 factorial experimental design was used to investigate the effects of supplemental calcium (Ca) (0.5% versus 1.0% of diet as Ca gluconate) and vitamin D3 (D) (1000 IU/kg diet versus 2000Expand
