Selenium and selenomethionine levels in prostate cancer patients.

OBJECTIVE Selenium (Se) and selenomethionine (Se-Met) have been identified as potential chemopreventive agents of prostate cancer. Using an assay for the speciation (separation and identification) and quantification of selenoamino acids, Se-Met was profiled in serum and prostate tissue from prostate cancer patients. Total Se was measured also. METHODS… CONTINUE READING
