The originally promising studies of anti-mutagenic activity were later shown to be partly dependent on in vitro reactions of the phenolics with the tested mutagen (often benzo[a]pyrene) outside the cell, before cell entry (R. ) Furthermore, the phenolics appear highly reactive within the cells in a variety of functional systems. Thus, determination of the specificity of effective phenolics in reaching a tissue, entering the cells, and performing a useful tumor inhibitory function with adequate safety for normal cell function, will require much further study.
