Dietary intake of α-carotene, β-carotene, lycopene and PCa risk(left), blood levels of α-carotene, β-carotene, lycopene and PCa risk(right).
Advanced PCa was defined as stage III or IV or Gleason score ≥7.
(A) Dietary lycopene intake(mg/day) and risk of PCa; (B) Blood lycopene levels (ug/dl) and risk of PCa; (C) Dietary α-carotene intake(mg/day) and risk of PCa. These relationships were estimated by using random-effects metaregression. Dotted lines represent the 95% CIs for the fitted trend.
