Numerous phytochemicals have been examined for their capacity to act as cancer chemopreventive agents. Dibenzoylmethane, a minor constituent of licorice and a compound structurally-related to curcumin, recently was identified as an effective inhibitor of chemically-induced rat mammary DNA-adduct formation and tumorigenesis (Carcinogenesis 19(1998)1039-1043). The present studies were conducted to examine the capacity of dibenzoylmethane to inhibit the formation of DNA adducts following exposure… CONTINUE READING
