Lung cancer cases diagnosed during the period 1975 through 1993 and matched controls were identified in the rosters of Washington County, Maryland residents who had donated blood for a serum bank in 1974 or 1989. Plasma from participants in the 1989 project was assayed for ascorbic acid; serum or plasma was assayed for participants in either project for(More)
Quantification of 8-iso-prostaglandin F(2alpha) (8-iso-PGF(2alpha)) has been suggested to be a reliable indicator of lipid peroxidation that may be related to in vivo free radical generation, oxidative damage, and antioxidant deficiency. We have developed a LC-MS/MS method to quantify 8-iso- PGF(2alpha) and its dinor metabolite,(More)
In the oxidative stress hypothesis of aging, the aging process is the result of cumulative damage by reactive oxygen species. Humans and chimpanzees are remarkably similar; but humans live twice as long as chimpanzees and therefore are believed to age at a slower rate. The purpose of this study was to compare biomarkers for cardiovascular disease, oxidative(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the 137-item Utah Picture-sort Food-frequency Questionnaire (FFQ) in the measurement of usual dietary intake in older adults. DESIGN The picture-sort FFQ was administered at baseline and again one year later. Three seasonal 24-hour dietary recall interviews were collected during the year between the two FFQs. Mean nutrient intakes(More)
BACKGROUND Maternal folate intake and related biomarkers have been inconsistently associated with a risk of oral clefts. METHODS Maternal concentrations of plasma folate (PF) and erythrocyte folate (EF), plasma pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (PLP; active vitamin B(6) ) and total plasma homocysteine (tHcy) were measured in a Utah study with 347 cases and 469(More)

Many of the most serious human diseases have a strong association with the steady-state level of oxidative damage in tissues. On an individual level this damage is defined as the patient's oxidative stress status (OSS). OSS is associated with many of the major age-related diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease, as well as(More)
