In the present study, we examined whether the level of 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-oxodGuo) in leukocyte DNA is higher in lung cancer patients compared to controls. Factors that may influence oxidative stress, such as antioxidant vitamins, were also determined. These parameters were analyzed in 4 groups of subjects: smokers with lung cancer, ex-smokers with lung cancer, healthy smokers with comparable smoking status and healthy nonsmokers. The 8-oxodGuo mean level in leukocytes of… CONTINUE READING
