Association of serum α-tocopherol with sex steroid hormones and interactions with smoking: implications for prostate cancer risk


Mondul, A M; Rohrmann, S; Menke, A; Feinleib, M; Nelson, W G; Platz, E A; Albanes, D (2011). Association of serum α-tocopherol with sex steroid hormones and interactions with smoking: implications for prostate cancer risk. Cancer Causes & Control, 22(6):827-836.

Abstract

Results from this nationally representative, cross-sectional study indicate an inverse association between serum α-tocopherol and circulating testosterone, estradiol, and SHBG, but only in men who smoked. Our findings support vitamin E selectively influencing sex hormones in smokers and afford possible mechanisms through which vitamin E may impact prostate cancer risk.
