Suppression of lipid-hydroperoxide and DNA-adduct formation by isoflavone-containing soy hypocotyl tea in rats.


OBJECTIVE Phytoestrogen isoflavones (IFs) are considered to suppress estrogen-related cancers through their antiestrogenic activity. The antioxidant effect of IFs, however, has not been confirmed in anin vivo system, so suppression of hydroperoxide formation and resultant DNA adduct formation were studied. METHODS The antioxidant effects of the soya… (More)
