Oxidative stress caused the generation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) plays an important role in human carcinogenesis. Manganese Superoxyde dismutase (MnSOD) is a major enzyme that is responsible for the detoxification of reactive oxygen species in the mitochondria.
This case-control study covered 70 lung cancer patients and 81 healthy control.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
