SCOPE Intervention studies provide evidence that long-term coffee consumption correlates with reduced DNA background damage in healthy volunteers. Here, we report on short-term kinetics of this effect, showing a rapid onset after normal coffee intake. METHODS AND RESULTS In a short-term human intervention study, we determined the effects of coffee intake(More)
PURPOSE Coffee consumption has been reported to decrease oxidative damage in peripheral white blood cells (WBC). However, effects on the level of spontaneous DNA strand breaks, a well established marker of health risk, have not been specifically reported yet. We analyzed the impact of consuming a dark roast coffee blend on the level of spontaneous DNA(More)
The aim of the present study was to explore the relation of controlled dietary acrylamide (AA) intake with the excretion of AA-related urinary mercapturic acids (MA), N-acetyl-S-(carbamoylethyl)-l-cysteine (AAMA) and N-acetyl-S-(1-carbamoyl-2-hydroxyethyl)-l-cysteine (GAMA). Excretion kinetics of these short-term exposure biomarkers were monitored under(More)
Transtympanic electrical stimulation, either in the form of round window or promontory placement of electrode prior to cochlear implantation is an accepted and commonly used psychophysical tool. Certain response parameters have been identified as predictors of outcome. This study compared the subjective auditory responses generated by promontory electrical(More)
