Project: Impact of the human intestinal microbiota on the carcinogenicity of the food contaminant 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP)

project duration
01-OCT-04 – 30-SEP-08
The aim of this research project is to achieve a thorough understanding of the metabolic competence of the intestinal microbiota to bioactivate/detoxify the heterocyclic aromatic amine PhIP. At the same time the interaction between the diet and the microbial metabolism of PhIP and the potential influence of several food supplements on PhIP metabolism will be evaluated.
