Epidemiological studies indicate that increased vegetable consumption reduces the risk of colorectal cancer mortality. In the present study we have investigated the effect of consumption of standard diets supplemented with freeze-dried vegetables (peas, spinach, sprouts and broccoli) and carotenoids (all-trans beta-carotene and palm oil carotenoid extract) on surrogate end-point markers for colorectal cancer in an azoxymethane-induced rat model. Mean aberrant crypt multiplicity was reduced (19… Expand
Low doses of β‐carotene and lutein inhibit AOM‐induced rat colonic ACF formation but high doses augment ACF incidence
TLDR
The results clearly suggest that further studies are warranted to determine whether the increase in ACF incidence by high doses of β‐carotene and lutein will also lead to an increase in tumor outcome, and indicate that the chemopreventive activity of β-carotenes and lutenin against colon carcinogenesis depends on the dose level.

Azoxymethane-Induced Colorectal Cancer Mice Treated with a Polyphenol-Rich Apple Extract Show Less Neoplastic Lesions and Signs of Cachexia
TLDR
Administration of a polyphenol-rich apple extract reduces the number of neoplastic lesions in mice with AOM-induced colorectal cancer and contributes to preserve adipose tissue mass. Expand
Vegetables affect the expression of genes involved in anticarcinogenic processes in the colonic mucosa of C57BL/6 female mice.
TLDR
For 39 genes, significant dose-dependent effects were found, although in general the relations were not linear, and altered expression could indeed explain reduced cancer risk at various stages of CRC development. Expand
Cruciferous vegetables and colo-rectal cancer
TLDR
In experimental animals cruciferous vegetables have been shown to inhibit chemically-induced colon cancer and this disparity may reflect a lack of sensitivity of such studies. Expand
Cruciferous Vegetables: Cancer Protective Mechanisms of Glucosinolate Hydrolysis Products and Selenium
TLDR
The anticarcinogenic bioactivities of glucosinolate hydrolysis products, the mineral selenium derived from crucifers, and the mechanisms by which they protect against cancer are described. Expand
Influence of dietary components associated with high or low risk of colon cancer on apoptosis in the rat colon.
TLDR
A diet-induced up-regulation of apoptosis may represent a mechanism of protection against the early stages of carcinogenesis in the colon of rats fed a diet containing low-risk factors for colon cancer. Expand

TLDR
Based on a meta-analysis of human and animal studies, daily grain legume consumption confers chemo-preventive effects against CRC. Expand
Nutrient-Gene Interactions Vegetables Affect the Expression of Genes Involved in Anticarcinogenic Processes in the Colonic Mucosa of C 57 Bl / 6 Female Mice 1
There is abundant epidemiological evidence that vegetable consumption decreases colorectal cancer (CRC) risk. However, the molecular targets in the genome are mostly unknown. The present studyExpand

TLDR
It is indicated that neither a lower fat intake nor consumption of VFM included in a high-fat diet decreases the development of polyps in mice genetically predisposed to intestinal tumor development. Expand

The results suggest that the combination of beta-carotene and perilla oil may be useful in the prevention of colon cancer. Expand
The effect of dietary quercetin and rutin on AOM-induced acute colonic epithelial abnormalities in mice fed a high-fat diet.
TLDR
The data suggest that, regardless of the fat content of the diet, quercetin and RU are capable of modifying or inhibiting events in the development of chemically induced colonic neoplasia. Expand

The results suggest that the vegetables-fruit mixture used in this experiment, present in an amount comparable with the mean consumption in The Netherlands, has no significant inhibitory effect on the development of colorectal tumors induced by DMH in rats maintained on diets low or high in fat.

TLDR
The aberrant crypt assay demonstrates reasonable specificity and sensitivity in predicting which agents are likely to prevent colon cancer, and is shown to be applicable to in vitro models of carcinogenesis. Expand
Demonstration of the need for end point validation of putative biomarkers: failure of aberrant crypt foci to predict colon cancer incidence.
TLDR
The number of aberrant crypt foci/rat cannot by itself be used as a reliable quantitative predictor of the efficacy of dietary intervention or of chemopreventive procedures on modulating the risk of developing colon cancer. Expand
