Countermeasure Studies Against Radiation-enhanced Colon Cancer
We developed the following hypotheses for countermeasure studies against radiation-enhanced colon cancer.
- A diet high in fish oil (a good source of omega 3 fatty acids) and pectin (a fermentable fiber), which we had shown to be protective against chemically-induced colon cancer, also would protect against radiation-enhanced colon cancer at three tumor development points and further.
- A non-invasive technology (recovering mRNA from fecal material) can be used to track changes in gene expression from colon cells over time.
