OBJECTIVE In the present study, we investigated the relationship between the urinary excretion rate of the oxidized nucleoside 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) and clinical factors in lung cancer patients. METHODS The present study included 100 patients, who underwent a lung surgery. The patients included 62 men and 38 women with a mean age of 65.5 years ranging from 35 to 82. The diagnosis included 81 primary lung cancers, 9 metastatic lung cancers and 10 benign lung diseases. Urine samples… CONTINUE READING
