Nitrosamines Play Important Role In Cancer Linked To Smoking

nitrosamines, more effective approaches toward prevention of tobacco-related cancers can be designed. Because lung cancer therapy is still largely unsuccessful, the use of chemical agents to inhibit the carcinogenicity of tobacco smoke--called chemoprevention--remains as a viable way to prevent cancer death in addicted smokers and ex-smokers, Hecht adds. Many agents have been tested in mice, and phase I clinical trials for the leading candidate, an isothiocyanate called PEITC, are being initiated.
