Cancer risk models
VITAMIN E AND LUNG CANCER RISK MODELS
This analysis of dose-response relationship between vitamin E intake and the risk of developing lung cancer will aid in developing new treatment and prevention strategies.
Lung cancer is considered one of the most common and fatal form of cancer, requiring urgent attention from medical researchers to slow its current epidemic proportions. With emphasis placed on both dietary and supplemental intakes of vitamin E, this book aims at improving the knowledge of empirical as well as mechanism-based vitamin E-lung cancer models.
- Sets the stage for a discussion on dose-response modeling;
- Pinpoints various barriers to identifying the biological processes driving lung cancer formation;
- Contains an overview of the knowledge gaps that hamper effective and appropriately targeted (lung) cancer strategies; and
- Includes a coherent framework deemed useful not only when evaluating vitamin intake, but also that of other micronutrients, or macronutrients in relation to not only lung cancer, but also other cancers or conditions.
