The formation of carcinogen-DNA adducts within the respiratory epithelium is thought to be a critical factor in the induction of lung cancer from tobacco smoke. A reliable surrogate measure of carcinogen damage to the lung would be of great value in molecular epidemiological studies of cancer risk. The validity of measurements of DNA adducts formed from(More)
The formation of smoking induced-DNA adducts is a critical factor in the induction of human lung cancer. As derivates of benzene and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are important compounds of tobacco smoke, in DNA isolated from human lung and blood mononuclear cells (MNCs) from 38 lung cancer patients, we used the (32)P-postlabeling assay to detect(More)
