A new type of analysis called “wide-selected ion monitoring (SIM)/MS2” scanning, is capable of screening for a wide range of DNA adducts (chemical modifications to genomic DNA). This method has successfully identified DNA adducts from carcinogen exposures and oxidative stress in human prostate and kidney tissues.

An important advantage of standardized methods is that they enable comparability between laboratories and across studies. In this work, the author used a standardized targeted kit to demonstrate the accuracy, sensitivity, and reproducibility of the approach, analyzing serum samples obtained from type 2 diabetes study subjects and healthy controls.
