  1. Serum beta-carotene and antioxidant micronutrients in children with cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    Serum antioxidant vitamins A (retinol) and E (alpha-tocopherol), bêta-carotene, zinc and selenium for 418 children with newly diagnosed malignancy were compared with those of 632 cancer-free controls.

    Incident cancer cases and controls were 1-16 years old and recruited in 1986-1989.

    Age- and sex-adjusted serum concentrations of retinol, bêta-carotene and alpha-tocopherol were significantly inversely associated with cancer.

    In similar models, the odds ratio (OR) comparing the highest with the lowest quintile was 2.06 (95% confidence interval [Cl] 1.40-3.02) for retinol, 3.87 (95% Cl: 2.54-5.90) for bêta-carotene, 2.15 (95% Cl:.48-3.10) for alpha-tocopherol, 1.29 (95% Cl: 0.75-2.23) for selenium, and 1.94 (95% Cl: 1.17-2.23) for zinc.
