An improved high-performance liquid chromatography/fluorometric assay has been established to quantitate the benzo(«)pyrene (BP) tetrols released after acid hydrolysis of lung DN A from lung cancer patients, so that the formation of benzo(a)pyrene diol-epoxide-DNA adducts can be measured. isolated by high-performance liquid chromatography was determined by(More)
Cigarette smoking is the strongest risk factor for lung cancer, but genetically determined variations in the activities of pulmonary enzyme that metabolize tobacco-derived carcinogens may affect individual risk. To investigate whether these enzymes (e.g., CYP1A-related) can serve as markers for carcinogen-DNA damage, lung tissue specimens were taken during(More)
