Inhibition of chemically-induced neoplastic transformation by a novel tetrasodium diphosphate astaxanthin derivative
Carotenoids have been implicated in numerous epidemiological studies as being protective against cancer at many sites, and their chemopreventive properties have been confirmed in laboratory studies. Astaxanthin, primarily a carotenoid of marine origin responsible for the pink coloration of salmon, shrimp and lobster, has received relatively little attention. As with other carotenoids its highly lipophilic properties complicate delivery to model systems. To overcome this issue we havedoi:10.1093/carcin/bgi121 pmid:15888493 fatcat:r4rlnahuanfcxbsks5zcyauti4
