This project explored the hypothesis that higher intake of dietary carcinogens e.g. heterocyclic amines was associated with elevated risk of prostate cancer. It also explored the potential that polymorphic variation in key metabolism genes may affect risk. The project conducted a case-control study on 392 cases and 342 controls. Biosamples were obtained on over 96 of participants. Initial analyses provide only limited support for our hypothesis, mostly trends without clear statistical significance.
