S. Reddy ethylurea along with nitrite (16). In humans, inhibition of N-nitroso compound formation by ascorbic acid, using urinary levels of nitrosoproline as an indicator, was also demonstrated (17). a-Tocopherols and phenols also have been shown to inhibit the formation of Nnitroso compounds. α-Tocopherol, a lipid-soluble, water-insoluble vitamin, is an effective inhibitor of N-nitrosation reactions in dispersons, and thus could be effective in inhibiting the formation of N-nitroso compounds in the GI tract.

PGE2 were the basis for comparison. The molecular ion for authentic silylated PGE 2 was 640, the largest peak in this region. Because the labeled PGE2 could contain either zero, one, two or three ls O-atoms, the ratios of 640, 642, 644 and 646 were compared to establish the isotopic distribution, which showed that 78% of the hydroxyl at carbon-15 contained ls O-atoms. Consequently, 78% of the 15-HPE 2 would possess ls O-atoms in the hydroperoxide. Labeled 15-HPE2 was used as substrate for the oxidation of MPS to MPSO with purified enzyme.

Ready Division of Nutrition and Endocrinology, American Health Foundanon, Valhalla, New York, 10595, USA Abstract During the last 20 years, a substantial amount of progress has been made in the understanding of the relationship between the dietary constituents and development of cancer in man. Laboratory animal model studies have provided useful data for evaluating the role of dietary constituents and synthetic compounds as inhibitors of carcinogenesis.
