VITAMIN E AND LUNG CANCER RISK MODELS
Vitamin E and Lung Cancer Models is part of series: Cancer Epidemiology, Research and Theory. It sets the stage for a discussion on dose-response modeling; offers briefly some defining aspects of carcinogenesis in lung cancer; presents templates for distinguishing safe, beneficial and critical dietary and supplemental doses of vitamin E; assesses the mechanism-based models, as well as the empirical dose-response models of vitamin E intake and lung cancer; contains an overview of knowledge gaps that hamper effective and appropriately targeted (lung) cancer strategies; and includes a coherent framework that can be 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.
The book aims at improving our understanding of the empirical and mechanism-based vitamin E-lung cancer models, to aid in developing new strategies for treatment and prevention of lung cancer.
