The levels of tobacco-related DNA adducts in human tissues reflect a dynamic process that is dependent on the intensity and time of exposure to tobacco smoke, the metabolic balance between activation of detoxification mechanisms, and the removal of adducts by DNA repair and/or cell turnover. Urinary 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) is probably 1 of the most abundant DNA lesions formed during oxidative stress and is proposed as a sensitive biomarker of the overall oxidative DNA damage and repair… CONTINUE READING
