  1. Serum beta-carotene in persons with cancer and their immediate families.

    Article - En anglais

    A unique case-control study design including family members of cases and controls was used to assess the association between serum beta-carotene and cancer.

    The cases (n=389) were incident cancer cases diagnosed between 1981 and 1984 in Wellington, New Zealand, and the controls (n=391) were hospital patients without cancer.

    Low levels of beta-carotene were observed for individuals with a number of cancers, including cancers of the lung, stomach, esophagus, small intestine, cervix, and uterus.

    Low levels of beta-carotene were also found in the relatives of these cancer patients.

    These differences persisted after stratification by current cigarette smoking.
