Abstract

The carotenoids, contained in natural oil extracts, are considered by us as the possible resource for cancer prevention in unfavorable areas in Russia, especially for victims of the Chernobyl disaster. Recently, we showed the preventive effect of natural carotenoids in spontaneous and chemically induced carcinogenesis models. In this work, we investigated the antimutagenic activity of natural oil extracts containing carotenoids.
