Abstract Molecular pathways to colorectal cancer involve multiple genetic changes, whereby extensive oxyradical damage causes mutations in cancer-related genes and leads to a cycle of cell death and regeneration. Besides direct oxidative DNA-damage, reactive oxygen and nitrogen species can induce etheno (epsilon)-DNA adducts mainly via trans-4-hydroxy-2-nonenal, generated as the major aldehyde by lipid peroxidation (LPO) of omega-6 PUFAs. Patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) develop multiple colorectal adenomas. In affected tissues increased LPO could be triggered due to increased arachidonic acid metabolism as a result of elevated cyclooxygenases. Our studies demonstrated an increased epsilon-DNA adduct level in affected colon epithelia of FAP patients. Epsilon-DNA adducts are promutagenic and can cause genomic instability that drives colorectal adenoma to malignancy. We have further investigated the potential chemopreventive properties of olive oil and its polyphenolic components. 'Mediterranean diet', of which olive oil is a major fatty acid source, has protective effects against human breast and colorectal cancers. Olive oil extracts and the newly identified lignan fractions showed high antioxidant capacity in vitro. As epsilon-DNA adducts are biomarkers for oxidative stress and LPO induced DNA damage, they can verify the efficacy of newly identified antioxidants, e.g. from olive oil, as chemopreventive agents against colon carcinogenesis.
