Table 3: Risk Estimates of EAC for baseline, net BPDE-induced and net γ radiation induced DNA Damage. c Adjusted by sex, age, smoking status, GERD and BE status, family history of all cancer. bP values were derived from the Wilcoxon rank-sum test for baseline TM, net BPDE-induced TM, and net γ radiation-induced TM. c“Low” referred to subjects with TM<75% cut-off of the controls. d“High” referred to subjects with TM ≥75% cut-off of the controls. e Participants were classified as having induced DNA damage value either ≥75% for net γ radiation-induce TM and <75% for net BPDE-induced TM or ≥ 75% for net BPDE-induced TM and <75% for net γ radiation-induced TM.
