In each case, criteria were based on a specific function and not on the prevention of chronic disease. The report also addresses beta-carotene and the carotenoids; but no EARs, RDAs, or ULs were established for any of those substances. Selenium Progress Made Considerable research has been conducted on selenium in the past 6 years. In basic science, for example, 25 genes have been identified that code for selenoproteins. Characterization of these genes is now in progress and is expected to yield useful functional information and clarification of biochemical mechanisms.

Selenoprotein P is now considered a highly promising biomarker for selenium status. It could be considered along with selenium-dependent glutathione peroxidase (the current functional indicator) by a future DRI panel. Disease prevention was and continues to be a particular area of interest related to the antioxidant nutrients. The ongoing Selenium and Vitamin E Chemoprevention Trial (SELECT), a very large cancer prevention clinical trial involving 35,000 men, will provide much needed clinical data on possible roles of selenium in disease prevention and on adverse effects that may occur with selenium supplementation.

Potential indicator of folate requirement Preliminary data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III) indicate that a useful cut point appears when homocysteine concentration is graphed against serum folate. Thus, a serum folate concentration of 10 nmol/L could serve as a useful indicator for the folate requirement. Bioavailability Relatively little research has been conducted on the bioavailability of folate. Despite several studies, the interaction of folate with vitamin B12 deficiency remains to be determined.
