2 RATIONALE Cancer is one of the first causes of death and morbidity within EU Cancer is preventable by plant food (eating fruits and vegetables The project is focused on the mechanisms of action of garlic on critical cellular and molecular events in the process of carcinogenesisThe probability to have a cancer in our lives is evaluated to 1 out of 2 for men and 1 out of 3 for women.One european citizen out of 4 dies from a cancer.Several means to combat cancer and several progresses have been made in therapy.Among the others prevention is a valuable (effective approach to combat .There is a conse,nsus about the role of consuming fruits & vegetables and the reduction of the risk of cancer.In this context our WP was focused on
3 ORIGINAL OBJECTIVES to investigate the role of garlic and its sulfur compounds on the process of carcinogenesis through cellular, animal and clinical studies in vivo studies (rat) with garlic powders in vitro studies (cells) with isolated sulfur compounds to clarify the metabolism of sulfur compounds of garlic which could be effective on carcinogenesis
4 Bioavailability and metabolism of sulfur compounds from garlic
5 APPROACHESIn vivo : administration of pure DADS or garlic in rats and measurements of the concentrations of metabolites in several tissuesEx vivo : perfusion of a rat liver by pure DADS and identification of metabolites specifically formed in the liverIn vitro : metabolism of DADS by rat and human subcellular fractions to validate the hypothetical pathways
6 Proposed scheme for the metabolism of DADS in the rat AllylmercaptanAllylglutathione sulfideSglutathioneSHAllylmethylsulfideAllylmethylsulfoxideAllylmethylsulfoneMetabolites detected in vitroMetabolites detected in vivo
7 CONCLUSION The metabolism of DADS is partly elucidated in rat and manDADS is rapidly absorbed and extensively metabolized.AMSO and AMSO2 are probably excretion compoundsSimilar metabolites profiles are observed after garlic administration
8 Role of garlic on the process of carcinogenesis : In vivo studies with rat
9 OBJECTIVES To assess the anticarcinogenic effect of garlic consumption on the appearence of liver preneoplasic foci initiated by chemical carcinogens To elucidate the mechanisms of the anticarcinogenic actionTo determine if the anticarcinogenic effect is correlated with the level of sulfur compounds in garlic

This results in a lesion that can be inherited and which confers to the cell the potential for neoplastic growth.

31 WP6 : GENERAL CONCLUSION The metabolism of sulfur compounds such diallyl disulfide is partly elucidated in rat and man.New metabolites and pathways are identified in the rat. Garlic consumption prevents the initiation step of chemical hepatocarcinogenesis in the rat. Some mechanism of action are elucidated.The efficacy is correlated with the S-content of garlicIn human cells, garlic sulfur compounds inhibit the genotoxicity induced by different chemicals.
