Title:
Dietary vitamins, polyphenols, selenium and probiotics: biomarkers of exposure and mechanism of anticarcinogenic action.
Abstract:
The major aim of this review was to summarize the state-of-the-art in use of biomarkers for some anticarcinogenic food components and to identify knowledge gaps, especially those of relevance for the partners of the NoE ECNIS and its contacts. Since this is a vast area, only certain selected topics, as outlined below, are considered in detail. The important links found between use of a substance as a biomarker and its mechanisms of action led to a further aim, that of reviewing the mechanisms of action of some of the most promising anticarcinogenic compounds.

ECNIS is a Network of Excellence within the European Union’s Sixth Framework Programme, Priority 5: Food Quality and Safety. It brings together some of the best European research groups in a concerted effort to achieve improved understanding of the environmental causes of cancer, of the potential of diet to prevent cancer and of the ways in which heredity can affect individual susceptibility to carcinogens, with the ultimate aim of reducing the cancer burden in Europe. ECNIS is coordinated by Prof. Konrad Rydzyƒski, Nofer Institute of Occupational Medicine,ul. Sw. Teresy 8, 91-348 Lodz, Poland. This review has been prepared as part of ECNIS Work Package 9: Mechanisms of modulation of cancer by dietary factors.
