Ascorbic Acid Deficiency: A condition due to a dietary deficiency of ascorbic acid (vitamin C), characterized by malaise, lethargy, and weakness. As the disease progresses, joints, muscles, and subcutaneous tissues may become the sites of hemorrhage. Ascorbic acid deficiency frequently develops into SCURVY in young children fed unsupplemented cow's milk exclusively during their first year. It develops also commonly in chronic alcoholism. (Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1177)Scurvy: An acquired blood vessel disorder caused by severe deficiency of vitamin C (ASCORBIC ACID) in the diet leading to defective collagen formation in small blood vessels. Scurvy is characterized by bleeding in any tissue, weakness, ANEMIA, spongy gums, and a brawny induration of the muscles of the calves and legs.Ascorbic Acid: A six carbon compound related to glucose. It is found naturally in citrus fruits and many vegetables. Ascorbic acid is an essential nutrient in human diets, and necessary to maintain connective tissue and bone. Its biologically active form, vitamin C, functions as a reducing agent and coenzyme in several metabolic pathways. Vitamin C is considered an antioxidant.Rats, Mutant Strains: Rats bearing mutant genes which are phenotypically expressed in the animals.Fatty Acids, Essential: Long chain organic acid molecules that must be obtained from the diet.

Many plant and animal tissues contain folic acid, abundant in green leafy vegetables, yeast, liver, and mushrooms but destroyed by long-term cooking. Alcohol interferes with its intermediate metabolism and absorption. Folic acid deficiency may develop in long-term anticonvulsant therapy or with use of oral contraceptives. This deficiency causes anemia, macrocytic anemia, and megaloblastic anemia. It is indistinguishable from vitamin B 12 deficiency in peripheral blood and bone marrow findings, but the neurologic lesions seen in B 12 deficiency do not occur.

This protein serves as an acceptor for CHOLESTEROL released from cells thus promoting efflux of cholesterol to HDL then to the LIVER for excretion from the body (reverse cholesterol transport). It also acts as a cofactor for LECITHIN CHOLESTEROL ACYLTRANSFERASE that forms CHOLESTEROL ESTERS on the HDL particles. Mutations of this gene APOA1 cause HDL deficiency, such as in FAMILIAL ALPHA LIPOPROTEIN DEFICIENCY DISEASE and in some patients with TANGIER DISEASE.Deficiency Diseases: A condition produced by dietary or metabolic deficiency. The term includes all diseases caused by an insufficient supply of essential nutrients, i.e., protein (or amino acids), vitamins, and minerals. It also includes an inadequacy of calories.

One drug is not of suitable composition to be combined or mixed with another agent or substance. The incompatibility usually results in an undesirable reaction, including chemical alteration or destruction. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)alpha-Tocopherol: A natural tocopherol and one of the most potent antioxidant tocopherols. It exhibits antioxidant activity by virtue of the phenolic hydrogen on the 2H-1-benzopyran-6-ol nucleus. It has four methyl groups on the 6-chromanol nucleus. The natural d form of alpha-tocopherol is more active than its synthetic dl-alpha-tocopherol racemic mixture.Ferritins: Iron-containing proteins that are widely distributed in animals, plants, and microorganisms. Their major function is to store IRON in a nontoxic bioavailable form. Each ferritin molecule consists of ferric iron in a hollow protein shell (APOFERRITINS) made of 24 subunits of various sequences depending on the species and tissue types.Mycoplasma penetrans: A species of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic bacteria. This organism shows remarkable pathobiologic properties: it adheres to cell surfaces, deeply penetrates into the cell, and strongly adsorbs human red blood cells and human CD4+ lymphocytes and monocytes. M. penetrans was first isolated from the urogenital tract of patients with AIDS and high frequencies of antibodies to it are seen in HIV-infected patients.Mycoplasma fermentans: A species of the genus MYCOPLASMA, originally isolated infrequently from the lower genital tract of humans, and possessing uncertain pathogenicity. The incognitus strain of M. fermentans has been identified in necrotizing lesions of multiple organs from AIDS and non-AIDS patients dying of an acute influenza-like disease.Vitamin D: A vitamin that includes both CHOLECALCIFEROLS and ERGOCALCIFEROLS, which have the common effect of preventing or curing RICKETS in animals. It can also be viewed as a hormone since it can be formed in SKIN by action of ULTRAVIOLET RAYS upon the precursors, 7-dehydrocholesterol and ERGOSTEROL, and acts on VITAMIN D RECEPTORS to regulate CALCIUM in opposition to PARATHYROID HORMONE.Vitamin D Deficiency: A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN D in the diet, insufficient production of vitamin D in the skin, inadequate absorption of vitamin D from the diet, or abnormal conversion of vitamin D to its bioactive metabolites.

Dietary antioxidants and magnesium in type 1 brittle asthma: a case control study. (1/213)

BACKGROUND: Type 1 brittle asthma is a rare form of asthma. Atopy, psychosocial factors and diet may contribute to this condition. As increased dietary magnesium has a beneficial effect on lung function and selenium, vitamins A, C and E have antioxidant properties, a study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that patients with brittle asthma have diets deficient in these nutrients compared with subjects with non-brittle asthma and healthy adults. METHODS: A case control study of the dietary intakes of 20 subjects with brittle asthma, 20 with non-brittle asthma, and 20 healthy adults was performed using five day weighed dietary records. Intake of magnesium was the primary outcome measure with selenium and vitamins A, C and E as secondary outcomes. Serum levels were measured at the same time as the dietary assessment. RESULTS: Sixty subjects (27 men) of mean age 49.5 years were recruited and completed the study. Subjects with brittle asthma had statistically lower median dietary intakes of vitamins A and E than the other groups (vitamin A: brittle asthma 522.5 micrograms/day, non-brittle asthma 869.5 micrograms/day, healthy adults 806.5 micrograms/day; vitamin E: brittle asthma 4.3 mg/day, non-brittle asthma 4.6 mg/day, healthy adults 4.5 mg/day). Median dietary intakes for the other nutrients were not significantly different between groups. Serum levels were within normal ranges for each nutrient in all subjects. Intakes less than the reference nutrient intake (RNI) for magnesium and vitamins A and C, and less than the safe intake (SI) for vitamin E were more likely in patients with brittle asthma than in those with non-brittle asthma. CONCLUSION: Nutrient deficiency and reduced antioxidant activity may contribute to disease activity in type 1 brittle asthma, although a prospective study of replacement therapy will be needed to confirm this hypothesis.  (+info)

Parenteral vitamin requirements during intravenous feeding. (2/213)

Serum vitamin levels of 40 patients undergoing parenteral nutrition over a 5-to 42-day period were studied while the subjects received daily water-soluble and once weekly fat soluble vitamin formulations intravenously. Initial serum deficiencies of vitamins A, C, and folate were noted in a large portion of the severely malnourished population. At the replacement levels used in this study a small number of patients developed subnormal levels of vitamins A and D. Improvement in levels for vitamin C and folate were noted for most patients. Vitamin B12 deficiencies were not noted in any patient. Currently available commercial vitamin preparations can be used with safety in the parenterally nourished population and recommended guidelines for weekly infusion of both water and fat soluble vitamins are presented.  (+info)

Aortic wall damage in mice unable to synthesize ascorbic acid. (3/213)

By inactivating the gene for L-gulono-gamma-lactone oxidase, a key enzyme in ascorbic acid synthesis, we have generated mice that, like humans, depend on dietary vitamin C. Regular chow, containing about 110 mg/kg of vitamin C, is unable to support the growth of the mutant mice, which require L-ascorbic acid supplemented in their drinking water (330 mg/liter). Upon withdrawal of supplementation, plasma and tissue ascorbic acid levels decreased to 10-15% of normal within 2 weeks, and after 5 weeks the mutants became anemic, began to lose weight, and die. Plasma total antioxidative capacities were approximately 37% normal in homozygotes after feeding the unsupplemented diet for 3-5 weeks. As plasma ascorbic acid decreased, small, but significant, increases in total cholesterol and decreases in high density lipoprotein cholesterol were observed. The most striking effects of the marginal dietary vitamin C were alterations in the wall of aorta, evidenced by the disruption of elastic laminae, smooth muscle cell proliferation, and focal endothelial desquamation of the luminal surface. Thus, marginal vitamin C deficiency affects the vascular integrity of mice unable to synthesize ascorbic acid, with potentially profound effects on the pathogenesis of vascular diseases. Breeding the vitamin C-dependent mice with mice carrying defined genetic mutations will provide numerous opportunities for systematic studies of the role of antioxidants in health and disease.  (+info)

Ascorbate is depleted by smoking and repleted by moderate supplementation: a study in male smokers and nonsmokers with matched dietary antioxidant intakes. (4/213)

BACKGROUND: Lack of reliable dietary data has hampered the ability to effectively distinguish between effects of smoking and diet on plasma antioxidant status. As confirmed by analyses of comprehensive food-frequency questionnaires, the total dietary intakes of fruit and vegetables and of dietary antioxidants were not significantly different between the study groups in the present study, thereby enabling isolation of the effect of smoking. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to investigate the effect of smoking on plasma antioxidant status by measuring ascorbic acid, alpha-tocopherol, gamma-tocopherol, beta-carotene, and lycopene, and subsequently, to test the effect of a 3-mo dietary supplementation with a moderate-dose vitamin cocktail. DESIGN: In a double-blind, placebo-controlled design, the effect of a vitamin cocktail containing 272 mg vitamin C, 31 mg all-rac-alpha-tocopheryl acetate, and 400 microg folic acid on plasma antioxidants was determined in a population of smokers (n = 37) and nonsmokers (n = 38). The population was selected for a low intake of fruit and vegetables and recruited from the San Francisco Bay area. RESULTS: Only ascorbic acid was significantly depleted by smoking per se (P < 0.01). After the 3-mo supplementation period, ascorbic acid was efficiently repleted in smokers (P < 0.001). Plasma alpha-tocopherol and the ratio of alpha- to gamma-tocopherol increased significantly in both supplemented groups (P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that previous reports of lower concentrations of plasma vitamin E and carotenoids in smokers than in nonsmokers may primarily have been caused by differences in dietary habits between study groups. Plasma ascorbic acid was depleted by smoking and repleted by moderate supplementation.  (+info)

Plasma vitamin C and food choice in the third Glasgow MONICA population survey. (5/213)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To determine the contribution of different foods to the estimated intakes of vitamin C among those differing in plasma vitamin C levels, and thereby inform dietary strategies for correcting possible deficiency. DESIGN: Cross sectional random population survey. SETTING: North Glasgow, Scotland, 1992. PARTICIPANTS: 632 men and 635 women, aged 25 to 74 years, not taking vitamin supplements, who participated in the third MONICA study (population survey monitoring trends and determinants of cardiovascular disease). MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Dietary and sociodemographic information was collected using a food frequency and lifestyle questionnaire. Plasma vitamin C was measured in non-fasted venous blood samples and subjects categorised by cut points of 11.4 and 22.7 micromol/l as being of low, marginal or optimal vitamin C status. Food sources of dietary vitamin C were identified for subjects in these categories. Plasma vitamin C concentrations were compared among groups classified according to intake of key foods. More men (26%) than women (14%) were in the low category for vitamin C status; as were a higher percentage of smokers and of those in the older age groups. Intake of vitamin C from potatoes and chips (fried potatoes) was uniform across categories; while the determinants of optimal versus low status were the intakes of citrus fruit, non-citrus fruit and fruit juice. Optimal status was achieved by a combined frequency of fruit, vegetables and/or fruit juice of three times a day or more except in older male smokers where a frequency greater than this was required even to reach a marginal plasma vitamin C level. CONCLUSION: Fruit, vegetables and/or fruit juice three or more times a day increases plasma vitamin C concentrations above the threshold for risk of deficiency.  (+info)

Vitamin C status and mortality in US adults. (6/213)

BACKGROUND: Low vitamin C status may increase the risk of mortality from cancer and cardiovascular disease. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to test whether an association existed between serum ascorbate concentrations and mortality and whether the association was modified by cigarette smoking status or sex. DESIGN: Serum ascorbate concentrations were measured in adults as part of the second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1976-1980). Vital status was ascertained 12-16 y later. RESULTS: The relative risk (RR) of death, adjusted for potential confounders, was estimated by using Cox proportional hazards models. Men in the lowest (<28.4 micromol/L) compared with the highest (>/=73.8 micromol/L) serum ascorbate quartile had a 57% higher risk of dying from any cause (RR: 1.57; 95% CI: 1.21, 2.03) and a 62% higher risk of dying from cancer (RR: 1.62; 95% CI: 1.01, 2.59). In contrast, there was no increased risk among men in the middle 2 quartiles for these outcomes and no increased risk of cardiovascular disease mortality in any quartile. There was no association between serum ascorbate quartile and mortality among women. These findings were consistent when analyses were limited to nonsmokers or further to adults who never smoked, suggesting that the observed relations were not due to cigarette smoking. CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that men with low serum ascorbate concentrations may have an increased risk of mortality, probably because of an increased risk of dying from cancer. In contrast, serum ascorbate concentrations were not related to mortality among women.  (+info)

Oral contraceptives and ascorbic acid. (7/213)

Plasma, leukocyte, and platelet ascorbic acid levels are decreased in women ingesting oral contraceptive steroids. Studies have shown that it is the estrogenic component of the oral contraceptive agents that is associated with the decresased ascorbic acid concentrations. Urinary excretion of ascorbic acid does not appear to be increased by the steroids. Although serum levels of copper are increased by estrogens and oral contraceptives, ascorbic acid catabolism does not appear to be increased (unpublished). Our preliminary data on tissue uptake of ascorbic acid suggest that changes in tissue distribution are one possible answer for the observed effects of the steroids on blood levels of ascorbic acid.  (+info)

Fractured neck of femur in black patients: a prospective study. (8/213)

We explored the role of iron overload, deficiency of vitamin C and alcohol abuse in the aetiology of cervical and intertrochanteric fractures of the neck of the femur as a result of minor trauma. We studied prospectively 72 patients (45 men, 27 women). Levels of serum iron markers, vitamin C and alcohol markers were measured. Consumption of alcohol was estimated using questionnaires. The findings were compared with those of an age- and gender-matched control group. The mean age of the men was 59.5 years and of the women 66.9 years, with a male predominance. In the men, iron overload, as shown by high levels of serum ferritin (p < 0.001) and deficiency of vitamin C (p < 0.03), as well as abuse of both Western and the traditional type of alcohol, appear to be important aetiological factors. In women, alcohol abuse was also common, but iron markers and levels of vitamin C did not differ significantly from the control group.  (+info)

Like us, guinea pigs cant make vitamin C, but must obtain it from their diet. This makes them a good model for examining the effects of vitamin C deficiency.. In a recent study looking specifically at the effects of prenatal vitamin C deficiency, 80 pregnant guinea pigs were fed a diet that was either high or low in vitamin C. Subsequently, 157 of the newborn pups were randomly allocated to either a low or high vitamin C diet (after weaning), creating four conditions: high/high (controls); high/low (postnatal depletion); low/high (postnatal repletion); low/low (pre/postnatal deficiency). Only males experienced the high/low condition (postnatal depletion).. Only the postnatal depletion group showed any effect on body weight; no group showed an effect on brain weight.. Nevertheless, although the brain as a whole grew normally, those who had experienced a prenatal vitamin C deficiency showed a significantly smaller hippocampus (about 10-15% smaller). This reduction was not reversed by later ...
Malaria is one of the most important tropical infectious diseases. Despite the fact that it is a completely preventable disease, a staggering 3.4 billion people continues to be at risk of the disease globally with 1.2 billion people at high risk particularly in high endemic and predominantly developing countries. In 2012, malaria was responsible for the death of approximately 482,000 under-five children. In Nigeria, Plasmodium falciparum malaria is responsible for around 60% of the out-patient visits to health facilities, 30% of childhood death, 25% of death in children under one year and 11% of maternal deaths. This study was carried out to determine the effect of Plasmodium falciparum parasitaemia on the serum ascorbic acid level of 60 malaria parasitized children of African descent aged 6 month-5 years visiting the children emergency unit and paediatric unit of Sokoto State Specialist Hospital in Sokoto, North Western, Nigeria. Controls included 30 non-parasitized children. Serum vitamin C ...
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and is not stored in the body in large quantities for prolonged periods of time. Since the human body cannot synthesize it, dietary intake of vitamin C on a regular basis is therefore necessary. Excess vitamin C is excreted in the urine thereby ensuring that the body has a total pool of about 1,500 milligrams (mg). Scurvy arises when a persons diet is deficient of vitamin C for about 3 months and the total body pool of vitamin C declines to levels below 350 mg.. The signs and symptoms associated with scurvy are largely due to the impaired synthesis of collagen. It is essentially the cement between cells that gives various tissues its firmness and strength. Weakening of these tissues, like the capillaries, leads to bleeding (hemorrhage), brittle bones and in children the normal growth of bone is affected. Iron absorption, immune function, the breakdown of cholesterol and formation of neurotransmitters are affected in scurvy thereby contributing to the ...
It turns out that scurvy and vitamin C deficiency is still around these days. Scurvy is a disease resulting from a lack of vitamin C. Most animals can synthesize vitamin C, but not humans. We must eat foods containing vitamin C to get the vitamin. Vitamin C deficiency results in defective formation of collagen and connective tissues (in our bones, skin, tendons, muscles), and symptoms may include weakness, feeling tired, curly hair, sore arms and legs, bruising, bleeding gums, and impaired wound healing.. A recent small Australian study looked at diabetic persons with chronic foot wounds (foot ulcers that didnt heal after several months). Their vitamin C levels were tested and if found to be low, then they were given vitamin C supplements of 500 or 1000 mg daily, and the result was that within 2 to 3 weeks the wounds were healed. The one person with a zinc deficiency was given 50 mg daily of zinc supplement and that wound also promptly healed.. Treatment of scurvy is by taking vitamin C ...
Background. Vitamin C is associated with lower levels of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP), an inflammatory biomarker that predicts cardiovascular disease. However, whether low vitamin C intake is associated with hsCRP and cardiac event-free survival in patients with heart failure (HF) has not been examined.. Purpose. We hypothesized that patients with low vitamin C intake would have higher risk for elevated hsCRP and cardiac events than those with adequate intake of vitamin C.. Method. A total of 212 patients with HF (age 61±12 years, 34% female, 45% NYHA class III/IV) provided blood to measure serum hsCRP and were divided into 2 groups using 3mg/l of hsCRP as a cut-point. Patients completed a 4-day food diary verified with a registered dietitian. Nutrition Data System software program was used to determine intake of vitamin C. Adequacy of vitamin C intake was determined using formulas from the Institute of Medicine. Patients were followed for 1 year to determine time to first event ...
If theres one vitamin most people think they understand, it is vitamin C. This vitamin - also known as ascorbic acid - is present in many fruits and vegetables, and well known for its antioxidant properties and immune-enhancing powers. It is also responsible for aiding in the formation of connective tissue such as the skin, bones, and blood vessels. It also happens to be an essential component of health that the body is incapable of manufacturing on its own. As a result, it is critical that the human diet contain adequate sources of this nutrient.. As part of its grand mission in the body, this vitamin regenerates tissue, protects against many ailments like the cold and heart disease, helps to avoid scurvy, reduce bad cholesterol, and combat free radicals that can damage cellular integrity. It also aids in the bodys ability to absorb iron, and can delay the onset of cataracts.. Its effects on fatigue are well-documented. Though it can take several weeks of lowered vitamin C levels to produce ...
Its wisdom thats been passed down through generations: Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, can help prevent colds. Today, however. vitamin C is gaining in reputation as an amazing anti-ageing ingredient in advanced skincare formulations.. But in supplement form, its equally potent as a defender against hair loss ― and for one of the same reasons: collagen.. Collagen: Vitamin C is one of the most effective ways to boost your production of collagen, an antioxidant and protein that is equally important to a full, healthy head of hair it as it is to smooth, firm skin.. In the 1700s, it was discovered that citrus fruits could help prevent scurvy. It wasnt known why at the time, but the magic ingredient was eventually identified as vitamin C. Scurvy is actually caused by a vitamin C deficiency that disrupts the bodys ability to manufacture collagen and connective tissues in the skin.. Hair loss is a proven sign of vitamin C deficiency. Supplementing with vitamin C supports the production of ...
Vitamin C is one of the stars of skincare. Vitamin C is needed to make collagen that strengthens skin, muscles, and blood vessels and to ensure proper wound healing.

When we look at the picture we are immediately drawn to the skin abnormality which is diffuse, purplish and irregular. It is in fact some mild bruising rather than a melanoma, although the latter is indeed a good thought. However, this is in part, a pseudo- red herring. It draws you away from the significant abnormality which is coiling of the hairs. Such a change is consistent with vitamin C deficiency (scurvy). One could indeed argue that the bruising is also caused by a vitamin C deficiency although there is not the typical peri-follicular hemorrhage that one sometimes sees in this condition ...
Obesity and the subsequent reprogramming of the white adipose tissue are linked to human disease-complexes including metabolic syndrome and concurrent non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The dietary imposed dyslipidemia promotes redox imbalance by the generation of excess levels of reactive oxygen species and induces adipocyte dysfunction and reprogramming, leading to a low grade systemic inflammation and ectopic lipid deposition, e.g., in the liver, hereby promoting a vicious circle in which dietary factors initiate a metabolic change that further exacerbates the negative consequences of an adverse life-style. Large epidemiological studies and findings from controlled in vivo animal studies have provided evidence supporting an association between poor vitamin C (VitC) status and propagation of life-style associated diseases. In addition, overweight per se has been shown to result in reduced plasma VitC, and the distribution of body fat in obesity ...

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a constellation of cardiometabolic risk factors, which together predict increased risk of more serious chronic diseases. We propose that one consequence of dietary overnutrition is increased abundance of Gram-negative bacteria in the gut that cause increased inflammation, impaired gut function, and endotoxemia that further dysregulate the already compromised antioxidant vitamin status in MetS. This discussion is timely because "healthy" individuals are no longer the societal norm and specialized dietary requirements are needed for the growing prevalence of MetS. Further, these lines of evidence provide the foundational basis for investigation that poor vitamin C status promotes endotoxemia, leading to metabolic dysfunction that impairs vitamin E trafficking through a mechanism involving the gut-liver axis. This report will establish a critical need for translational research aimed at validating therapeutic approaches to manage endotoxemia-an early, but ...
The premise behind the Vitamin C theory of heart disease is this: chronic scurvy. Weve all heard of sailors of long ago who brought citrus fruits along with them on their long sea voyages to avoid scurvy. Scurvy is a disease resulting from a vitamin c deficiency. The human body is unable to synthesize its own supply of vitamin c, so it needs to be supplemented through vitamin c-rich foods, and/or a vitamin supplement. Symptoms of scurvy include bleeding gums, fatigue, irritability, leg pain, easily-bruised skin, wounds that fail to heal, and more. These symptoms usually occur about 3 months after the person has been lacking enough vitamin c. Vitamin c is present in fresh fruits and vegetables, and in some meats. However, when foods are heavily processed and cooked, they lose most of this vitamin. So if your diet lacks fresh produce, you are setting yourself up for what is known as chronic scurvy. Vitamin c (aka L-ascorbic acid) is necessary for collagen production and iron absorption. It also ...
What causes your arteries to get blocked?. Atherosclerosis is a disease defined as hardening or thickening of the arteries. What allows the blood to keep flowing is the thin layer of endothelial cells.. However, there are a few factors that damage endothelial cells (and form atherosclerotic lesion) including free radicals, antioxidant deficiency, increased homocysteine levels, and vitamin C deficiency.. Plaque will accumulate when various substances are unable to migrate out of the atherosclerotic lesion. These substances include toxic metals, cellular waste, calcium, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood clotting materials.. Although the real cause of clogged arteries remains unclear, mounting evidence suggests that atherosclerosis is a complex condition which might start in childhood and develop as you get older. Factors like diabetes, insulin resistance, smoking, and hypertension are known to be damaging to the arteries.. 10 natural foods to unclog your arteries. Your doctor may prescribe ...

Copper and vitamin C are direct antagonists. This means that they oppose each other in the body. This is one reason many people feel better taking a lot of vitamin C. Copper tends to oxidize and destroy vitamin C in the body. Meanwhile, vitamin C chelates or removes copper from the body. This requires a dose of vitamin C of at least about 500 mg daily, far higher than the minimum daily requirement of about 60 mg. Many readers know that vitamin C is critical for connective tissues. One of the prominent symptoms of scurvy, or vitamin C deficiency, is bleeding, such as bleeding gums. This is due to connective tissue weakness. ...

Taking megadoses of vitamin C may lead to kidney damage, diarrhea, iron overload and accelerated atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). It increases the risk of kidney stones in some people. If stopped abruptly, it may result in rebound scurvy (vitamin C deficiency). Doses between 2000 and 5000 mg per day may have anti-coagulant properties, making it difficult for people to stop bleeding ...
In dermatology, there are typical examples of disorders related to dietary factors. The pathogenic, links between nutritional factor(s) and skin disease may be different.. Nutrient deficiency and nutrient excess are the simplest causes of specific diet-related cutaneous changes: scurvy (vitamin C deficiency) and acrodermantis enteropathica (zinc deficiency) are examples of the first type, and caronenoderma (carotene excess) is an example of the second type. Genetic metabolic defects or enzyme deficiencies, although subtle, may pave the way for the onset of diet-related skin disorders, where a toxic effect is exerted by the dietary factor(s): alcohol intake is responsible for porphyria curanea tarda, and the ingestion of choline- and lecithin-containing foods is the cause of eccnine bromhidrosis, with the typical "fishy" odor that features trimethylaminuria. More often, an immune (and complex) mechanism is involved in the pathogenesis of strictly diet-dependent skin disorders, e.g. atopic ...

In a society full of chemical laden, high calorie, high fat, low nutritional value convenience foods, vitamins & nutrition supplements are becoming more than just a "health nut" trend. Healthy, nutritional vitamins have become an absolute necessity.. A deficiency of vitamins K, E, and C, along with essential fatty acids can cause premature aging and skin cancer. Vitamin C deficiency can cause easy bleeding and bruising, hair and tooth loss, joint pain and swelling. These symptoms appear to be related to the weakening of blood vessels, connective tissue, and bone, which contain collagen.. Too little vitamin D can lead to osteoporosis, or a weakening of the skeletal system, due to compromised calcium absorption. D vitamin deficiency can also cause muscle weakness and cancer.. Blindness is one result of a diet lacking vitamin A. This type of deficiency has also been linked to immune system disorders and birth moralities.. B vitamins can cause a whole slew of health challenges when not present in ...

Little-known substance helps your body turbocharge vitamin C to make it really work.. By James Spounias -. A top seller for decades, vitamin C remains a popular nutritional supplement, but is there more to the vitamin C "story" you may not know? Most identify vitamin Cs history with scurvy and have heard the British are called "limeys" because their famous navy incorporated the idea of bringing fresh citrus aboard for the men to eat, which prevented scurvy.. Scurvy is a horrible condition in which the mucous membranes hemorrhage, cell membranes lose permeability and integrity, the gums swell and bleed, the body loses strength and energy and the lower leg muscles grow hard and weak. People would die a horrible death due to these classic symptoms. The British didnt know about vitamin C, but they knew there was something in this food that helped prevent scurvy.. We human beings do not have the capacity to manufacture vitamin C in our bodies as most other mammals do. We must get the vitamin from ...
Scurvy may be the oldest known dietary deficiency disease. A shortage of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) in the diet causes pain in the limbs, and swelling and bleeding gums.
Scurvy is a historical disease caused by severe and chronic deficiency of vitamin C. Its recent reemergence is a poor reflection of the nations diet.
The typical scurvy symptoms and signs include general weakness, painful joints and muscles, hemorrhage of gums and mucous membranes, anemia, livid spots on the legs and corkscrew hair.

BACKGROUND: Some studies have hypothesized the protective role of Vitamin C against cardiovascular disorders (CVD) in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). This study was designed to assess plasma Vitamin C concentration and its relationship to hemodialysis (HD) patients morbidity and mortality. METHODS: Plasma Vitamin C concentrations were assessed in HD patients using spectrophotometry and subjects were prospectively followed for up eighteen months for all-cause mortality. Any association between Vitamin C concentration and patients demographic data, co-morbidities, or the cause of ESRD were investigated using the Chi-square test. RESULTS: Ninety-one patients with a mean age of 56.7 ? 15.7 years were included in this study. The most frequent cause of ESRD was simultaneous hypertension and diabetes in 30 % of patients, followed by hypertension in 25.6 %, and diabetes in 11.1 %, respectively. About 34 % of patients had CVD as the most prevalent co-morbidity. Forty-nine patients (53.8 ...
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first prospective cohort study to examine the relationship between serum vitamin C concentration and the incidence of stroke. Compared with previous cohort studies based on mortality data,6 10 our study based on incidence data may have some advantages, such as the relatively accurate diagnosis of disease outcomes and the inclusion of nonfatal cases. Serum vitamin C concentration was inversely associated with the subsequent incidence of all stroke during the 20-year observation period. Although a previous study that examined the association between plasma vitamin C concentration and stroke mortality6 had a potential weakness that arose from generally known inaccuracies in death certification, particularly in elderly people,6 our similar results based on incidence data would support their findings and emphasize the importance of the serum (or plasma) vitamin C concentration in predicting the occurrence of stroke.. Most interestingly, an inverse association ...
The Kuopio ischaemic heart disease risk factor study is a population study designed to investigate risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, atherosclerosis, and related outcomes in men from eastern Finland.18 The baseline examinations were carried out between March 1984 and December 1989. The study sample included 3235 eligible men aged 42, 48, 54, or 60 at the baseline examination; 2682 (82.9%) participated. Men with symptomatic coronary heart disease (n = 92) or ischaemia on maximal exercise testing (n = 359),19 or both (n = 585), were excluded from the current analyses. Of the remaining 1646 men, 1605 had data on plasma ascorbate concentration at baseline.. The examination protocol and measurements have been described.10 11 12 13 Plasma ascorbate concentrations were determined by a chromatographic method in deep frozen samples, which were stabilised in 5% metaphosphoric acid immediately after sampling.20 The coefficient of variation between 12 batches was 7.2%.20.

Vitamin C Deficiency (Scurvy):. Signs of scurvy include drooling, weight loss, hair loss or reluctance to move due to painful joints. Therapy is mainly Vitamin C supplementation. Correction of the diet to include daily Vitamin C sources is necessary. Supportive care (fluids, antibiotics, etc) may be needed in very ill patients. This is a common and preventable disease in this species.. → Dental Diseases:. Guinea pigs have constantly growing teeth, and may develop overgrown front teeth (incisors) or back teeth (molars) for a variety of reasons. Vitamin C deficiency (scurvy) can cause TMJ pain and lead to tooth overgrowth. Incisor overgrowth may be visible as long tusk-like projections from the mouth. Molar overgrowth (or molar infections) may cause drooling, chin staining, foul odor, and difficulty eating. Treatment of tooth problems often involves trimming the overgrown teeth back to normal length, extracting any infected teeth, correcting any other illness which may be contributing to the ...
Background: Reactive Oxygen species induced bronchial abnormalities may have important consequences in asthma, the main symptom being wheezing specially in children. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant known to quench the reactive oxygen species. A beneficial effect of fresh fruit consumption on lung function has been observed in several studies. Plasma levels Vitamin C was determined in relation to wheezing symptoms in cross sectional study. Methods: In a cross sectional blood samples of 50 patients attending pediatrics OPD, having wheezing and shortness of breath were analyzed for plasma Ascorbic acid level and compared with healthy controls of same age and sex. Results: The total number of 50 wheezing children were in the age group of 2 to 12 years with similar age matched controls. It was observed that the plasma ascorbic acid concentration in the wheezing children (0.43 - 0.12 mg/dl) was significantly decreased as compared to the normal controls ( 0.75 - 0.18 mg/dl ) P, 0.001.

Large cross-sectional population studies confirm that vitamin C deficiency is common in humans, affecting 5%-10% of adults in the industrialized world. Moreover, significant associations between poor vitamin C status and increased morbidity and mortality have consistently been observed. However, the absorption, distribution and elimination kinetics of vitamin C in vivo are highly complex, due to dose-dependent non-linearity, and the specific regulatory mechanisms are not fully understood. Particularly, little is known about how adaptive mechanisms during states of deficiency affect the overall regulation of vitamin C transport in the body. This review discusses mechanisms of vitamin C transport and potential means of regulation with special emphasis on capacity and functional properties, such as differences in the Km of vitamin C transporters in different target tissues, in some instances demonstrating a tissue-specific distribution.

The criterion for the diagnosis of scurvy had been, until recently, the appearance of the symptoms of scurvy. As a result of the experimental work in vitamin C, three new diagnostic procedures have now come into use: the capillary resistance test, the concentration of vitamin C in the blood and the urinary excretion of vitamin C.1, 2, 3, 4, 5 There is still some controversy as to the value of capillary resistance tests as an index of vitamin C deficiency. We have studied the capillary resistance of 25 young normal adults by the Dalldorf method5 and found no definite relation ...
Read article on the website of the Natural Health Research Institute (USA). Comment: Vitamin C is the key micronutrient for the stability of blood vessels, the heart and all other organs in our bodies. Without it, our bodies would literally collapse and dissolve just as happens in the vitamin C deficiency disease, scurvy. Significantly therefore, sub-clinical deficiencies of vitamin C are far more common than is generally realized. Even based upon the miniscule intakes that are naively assumed to be sufficient by the medical orthodoxy, as many as one in seven young Canadian adults and up to three quarters of elderly people in parts of India are believed to be deficient in this crucial micronutrient. Worse still, even outright scurvy now appears to be no longer confined to the history books, with cases in children being known to have risen in England between 2004 and 2008.

Vitamins DO NOT make a person more energetic. The claims that manufacturers put on the vitamin labels are NOT regulated by the FDA so they can essentially say what they want. Only the Federal Trade Commission can stop a manufacturer from making false claims, but they rarely do it. The only disease a vitamin will cure is one that is caused by a deficiency of the vitamin. For example, if a person has scurvy (Vitamin C deficiency) then the scurvy will be cured by taking Vitamin C supplements. If a person has Megaloblastic Anemia (Vitamin B12 deficiency) then taking Vitamin B12 supplements will cure it. They only way to increase a persons energy level is to (1) get proper sleep, (2) eat properly, (3) have your MD check thyroid function tests and probably a Complete Blood Count to check for anemia. Any slight variation in the Thyroid panels can produce fatigue. That may be why you are so tired. Roxanne M.

Dr Archie Kalokerinos has done far and away the most important practical work in this area and Glen Dettman, PhD, in their work with aboriginal children in Australia, described in the book "Every Second Child". Aboriginal infant death rates had shown a dramatic increase in the early 1970s, having doubled in 1970 and gone even higher in 1971. In some areas of the Northern Territory the infant death rate was reaching 50 out of every 100 babies. Dr Kalokerinos proved that the cause of death was what is called immunological shock, or paralysis resulting from nutritional-immunological interactions; in this particular event it was Vitamin C deficiency. He says: "I have no doubt that some so-called "cot deaths" are in fact acute vitamin C deficiencies, and that these occur even if the diet is adequate….. and their response to vaccines against infections is not always good. First, there is an increased utilisation of vitamin C, and this, particularly when associated with dietary deficiency or failure ...
Anemia reversed Anemia is a symptom caused by a myriad of conditions. These conditions include iron deficiency, vitamin B12 deficiency, vitamin C deficiency, Vitamin E deficiency, supplement B6 deficiency, and thyroid disorders, for openers. Because the most common and significant forms of anemia are linked to diet, it is this certain region that I will address sensitive . A lot of people equate anemia with iron deficiency as evidenced and motivated by commercials for products like Geritol, which extol the virtues of it and presenting it as a cure-all for any condition that creates tiredness. While iron deficiency is fairly common for women in childbearing years due to frequent loss of iron-comprising hemoglobin in the menstrual stream, it is less likely to be the cause of anemia in older people who are the primary targets for these advertisements. In fact, due to years of consuming extra iron in supplement form, many elderly persons develop serious iron excesses, because intense iron overdose ...

Vitamin C is water-soluble, and probably the most famous of all the vitamins. Even before its discovery in 1932, physicians recognised that there must be a compound in citrus fruits preventing scurvy, a disease that killed as many as 2 million sailors between 1500 and 1800. Later researchers discovered that man, other primates and the guinea pig depend on external sources to cover their Vitamin C requirements. Most other animals are able to synthesise Vitamin C from glucose and galactose in their body. The most prominent role of Vitamin C is its immune stimulating effect, which is important for the defence against infections such as common colds. It also acts as an inhibitor of histamine, a compound that is released during allergic reactions. As a powerful antioxidant it can neutralise harmful free radicals and aids in neutralising pollutants and toxins. Thus it is able to prevent the formation of potentially carcinogenic nitrosamines in the stomach (due to consumption of nitrite-containing ...
The relatively common condition known as premature rupture of the chorioamniotic membranes (PROM) may result in premature delivery and infection. Earlier studies have found that vitamin C plays an important role in maintaining the collagen in the membrane throughout gestation but it is not stored well by the body, which excretes whatever it does not need on a daily basis.. The researchers, led by Esther Casanueva, set out to determine the effectiveness of a daily 100mg dose in preventing PROM.. In the controlled double-blind trial, 120 women in their 20th week of pregnancy were randomly assigned to two groups; one group received 100mg of vitamin C each day and the other received a placebo.. The womens plasma and leukocyte vitamin C concentrations were measured every fourth week and the results published in the April issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition​ (81, 4: 859-863).. They showed that mean plasma vitamin C concentrations decreased as pregnancy progressed in all of the 109 ...
Agreement among three indicators of vitamin C status-serum ascorbate level, a 24-hour recall, and the frequency of fruit and vegetable consumption-was examined using data from the Second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey conducted between 1976 and 1980.

The great challenge in innovation is not coming up with a discovery or great invention. The challenge is in making it stick, in nurturing it and growing it so that it spreads and changes the world. Numerous antibodies and barriers are ready to snuff out every great idea, even when it offers a solution that the world is clamoring for. The story of scurvy in the British Navy, as shared in Chapter 10 of Conquering Innovation Fatigue, illustrates this principle.. Scurvy cost the lives of thousands of sailors and soldiers around the world for centuries. For the British Navy, that disease was one of the greatest challenges it faced. On long voyages, 30% or more of the crew might die from scurvy. Through confusion and error among Englands educated elite regarding scurvy, misinformation about its cause and its cure would persist into the 20th century. However, there was credible medical information in the early 1600s pointing to citrus fruits as a key aid in preventing and curing the disease. [See ...

Atherosclerosis refers to the narrowing, hardening and thickening of the arteries. A layer of endothelial cells keeps the smooth and elastic lining of the artery walls. This allows the blood to flow throughout the body. A few factors can damage the endothelial layer, such as high levels of homocysteine, platelet cells and free radicals from antioxidant deficiency or toxic substances. Moreover, high levels of homocysteine and a lack of vitamin C may damage the degradation of ground substance. This gel-like substance maintains the integrity of the epithelial barrier.. Atheroma, or fatty material, starts to accumulate in the artery lining walls. As it is a foreign material, it leads to body inflammation. The arteries try to eliminate the inflammation by repairing the tissues, thus creating a seal of fibrous material over the core. This forms plague that is made from fatty material, calcium, toxic metals, cholesterol, fibrin, cellular waste and the fibrous tissue around it. As more fatty material ...
Increase your Vitamin C. Studies indicate that as little as 250 mg of this antioxidant daily after surgery can reduce recovery time in half. Vitamin C offers support to the immune system and promotes healing. In most instances it is possible to significantly boost Vitamin C with no adverse reactions with surgery. For patients facing invasive procedures and people with compromised immune systems, a nutritional IV with high doses of Vitamin C can be the easiest and most effective way to support the body. Vitamin C supplementation and IV therapy can be started prior to and continue after surgery for most people. To boost Vitamin C levels prior to surgery, take between five and ten grams daily in divided doses the week leading up to surgery. Too much Vitamin C will result in a looser-than-normal stool and indicates that someone should back off on the dose but not stop taking it ...

We have recently observed that Lp(a) is mainly found in the plasma of animals that have lost the ability to synthesize ascorbate. Consequently we postulated the presence of Lp(a) in the plasma of the guinea pig. A study confirmed our assumption and we were able to detect apo(a) in the plasma of this species. We therefore conclude that Lp(a) is a constituent of the lipoprotein pattern of the guinea pig. This observation substantiates our hypothesis that apo(a) is a surrogate for ascorbate; it does not, however, exclude the possibility of detection of apo(a) in some other species, which might endogenously synthesize ascorbate.. The guinea pig was used in this study also for its unique inducibility of atherosclerosis. We could confirm earlier reports that a significant reduction of dietary ascorbate is sufficient to cause atherosclerotic plaques in this animal model without any additional dietary modification or other stimuli. Since we concluded that Lp(a) is present in the plasma of the guinea pig ...
A.Scurvy is caused by a dietary deficiency of vitamin C. Although scurvy is uncommon, it may occur in malnourished individuals, those with increased vitamin C requirements (such as pregnant or breastfeeding women), or infants whose only source of nourishment is breast milk. Vitamin C administered by mouth or injection is effective for curing scurvy. If vitamin C is not available, orange juice can be used for infantile scurvy. Symptoms should begin to improve within 24-48 hours, with resolution within seven days. Treatment should be under strict medical supervision.. Q.What are the doses of Ascorbic acid? ...
Scurvy is a nutritional disease caused by a diet deficient in vitamin C [Ascorbic acid] since the body is unable to synthesize vitamin C.
The cells that line your blood vessels are truly amazing in terms of all the functions they provide. Their end-result have a great deal to do with how you heal. But they cant do their job without the adequate nutrition that they need. And the prime nutrient required by these cells is vitamin P. Originally, vitamin P was named for an extract of paprika. Today, we know it better as bioflavonoids.. But if you are deficient in vitamin P, you are likely suffering from sub-clinical scurvy.. At one time, scurvy was considered deadly. Today, it is looked upon as an old disease that has been pretty much eradicated. But the less deadly version - sub-clinical scurvy - can be found in much of the American population. Its even possible you may have it.. And while you probably wont die quickly from scurvy as people did centuries ago, your odds of dying from damage to your blood vessels and the resulting strokes and/or heart attacks are significantly increased.

Dr. Rath was born in Stuttgart, Germany, in 1955. After finishing medical school he served as a doctor and researcher at the University Clinic in Hamburg, Germany and the German Heart Center in Berlin.. His examination centered on the problems of arteriosclerosis and cardiovascular illness.. In 1987, he found the link between vitamin C deficiency and a further risk factor for heart condition- lipoprotein(a).. Following discovery of these study verdicts in the American Heart Association journal "Arteriosclerosis," Dr. Rath received an offer to join in 2 time Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling.. In 1990 she went to the USA to become the leading Director of Cardiovascular Research at the Linus Pauling Institute in Californa.. Dr. Rath worked alonfsite with the late Nobel Laureate in many fields of nutritional science.. The two experts became close friends who shared common values, including their decision for unity and fairness. In 1994, soon before his departure, Linus Pauling stated: "There is no doubt ...

Physical symptoms of fatty acid deficiency unreliable in ADHD, Sinn N, Prostaglandins Leukot Essent Fatty Acids. 2007 Aug;77(2):109-15. Details. Two studies were conducted to determine whether physical signs of fatty acid deficiencies such as dry hair and skin, frequent thirst and urination were a good indicator of whether fatty acid supplementation could potentially improve ADHD symptoms in children both with ADHD and those without the disorder. It was found that the physical symptoms of deficiency did not reliably predict which children would have behavioural benefits from supplementation.. Sinn N.

Scurvy. Unlike most animals, humans are unable to make their own Vitamin C, and so they must get all the Vitamin C they need from the food they eat. Vitamin C is found in fresh fruits and vegetables, with small amounts present in milk, meat and fish, but cooking food will destroy a large percentage of the Vitamin C it contains. People who do not eat enough Vitamin C for prolonged periods will develop scurvy. This is a condition famously associated with historical long sea voyages, where the sailors relied on eating preserved foods and didnt have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. At the time, the cause of their symptoms was unknown - it wasnt until James Lind carried out his experiments in the mid eighteenth century that it was proved that scurvy could be cured with the juice of citrus fruits. Even then, it took a long time before his results were accepted.. Vitamin C is necessary for the body to make collagen, which is an essential part of many of the bodys tissues, including bones, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Impact of hepatitis C status on 20-year mortality of patients with substance use disorders. AU - Accurso, Anthony J.. AU - Rastegar, Darius A. AU - Ghazarian, Sharon R.. AU - Fingerhood, Michael I. PY - 2015/10/13. Y1 - 2015/10/13. N2 - BACKGROUND: The magnitude of the effect of hepatitis C viral infection on survival is still not fully understood. The objective of this study was to determine whether the presence of hepatitis C viral antibodies in 1991 was associated with increased mortality 20 years later within a cohort of patients with substance use disorders. Secondary objectives were to determine other factors that were associated with increased mortality in the cohort.METHODS: A subset of a 1991 study cohort of patients who had presented for detoxification was reexamined 20 years later. The Social Security Death Index was queried to identify which of the original patients had died. Attributes of survivors and non-survivors were compared, with special attention to their ...
Plasma vitamin C was lower in periodontitis patients compared with controls (8.3 and 11.3 mg/l, respectively, p = 0.03). Only in the control group a positive correlation was present between vitamin C intake and plasma values. No differences could be assessed between patients and controls regarding vitamin C dietary intake and levels in PMNs and PBMCs. In the patient group, pocket depth appeared to be negatively associated with the vitamin C concentration in PMNs ...
Figure 1. Schematic representation of the process of A. tumefaciens-mediated transformation. Phenolic and sugar molecules from wounded plant cells trigger in the bacterium a series of events resulting in the processing of the T-DNA by the VirD1/VirD2 endonuclease and the subsequent transfer of the VirD2/T-strand complex, along with VirE2 and VirF proteins, from the bacterium through the VirB/VirD4 type IV secretion system. Key events in the plant cell include bacterial attachment, T-complex and Vir protein transfer, cytoplasmic trafficking of the T-complex, nuclear targeting, and T-DNA integration. Some of the plant genes necessary for these processes are depicted by representative rat mutants.. ...

Vitamin C is known to protect mucosal tissues from oxidative stress and inhibit nitrosamine formation in the stomach. High consumption of fruits, particularly citrus, and higher circulating vitamin C concentrations may be inversely associated with gastric cancer (GC) risk. We investigated 20 polymorphisms in vitamin C transporter genes SCL23A1 and SCL23A2 and GC risk in 365 cases and 1,284 controls nested within the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition cohort. We also evaluated the association between these polymorphisms and baseline plasma vitamin C levels in a subset of participants. Four SNPs were predictors of plasma vitamin C levels (SLC23A1 rs11950646 and rs33972313; SLC23A2 rs6053005 and rs6133175) in multivariable linear regression models. One SNP (SLC23A2 rs6116569) was associated with GC risk, in particular non-cardia GC (OR = 1.63, 95 % CI = 1.11-2.39, based on 178 non-cardia cases), but this association was attenuated when plasma vitamin C was included in the ...
The effect of acute endotoxin-induced septic shock on myocardium oxidative stress after low or high vitamin C and/or E dietary supplementation was studied in guinea pigs, laboratory animals which, like human, do not have capacity for ascorbate synthesis. Neither the antioxidant enzymes or GSH were modified by endotoxin and vitamin treatments. Vitamin E showed a strong capacity to protect the myocardium against both enzymatic and non-enzymatic lipid peroxidation even in the presence of endotoxin. Vitamin C supplementation increased heart ascorbate whereas endotoxic shock totally depleted the heart ascorbate of vitamin C supplemented animals without changing vitamin E. Endotoxin significantly increased myocardium uric acid, a marker of ischemia induced oxidative stress, in animals fed with low vitamin C levels. This increase was totally prevented in vitamin C supplemented, but not in vitamin E supplemented animals. Strongly depressed levels of plasma vitamin C have been recently described in ...
Abstract: : Purpose: Exfoliation syndrome (XFS) is a disorder involving aberrant extracellular matrix production. The principal ocular cells involved in exfoliation material synthesis are closely associated with the aqueous humor. High ascorbate concentration in the aqueous humor has been known for decades. We have evaluated the levels of ascorbic acid in the aqueous humor of patients with XFS in comparison with normal age-matched control patients. Methods: Aqueous humour samples were obtained at the beginning of phacoemulsification cataract surgery. Eighty aqueous samples, 40 from cataract patients with XFS and 40 from age matched cataract patients without XFS have been analysed. Ascorbic acid concentration in the aqueous was determined by a microplate assay method. Protein concentration was also measured in the same samples. Results: The mean concentration of ascorbic acid in the aqueous humor from patients with XFS (0,86 ± 0,43 mM) was significantly lower than that measured in the aqueous ...
In the present study, we evaluated the effect of systemic administration of vitamin C on the healing of aneurysms embolized with platinum coils. Our results suggest that systemic vitamin C supplementation does not improve the long term histological healing of rabbit aneurysms following platinum coil embolization, as evidenced by lack of cellularity and fibrosis in the aneurysm cavity as well as dearth of neointimal coverage at the neck of the aneurysm. These negative results were found even though adequate levels of vitamin C were achieved in both test groups. Thus clinical trials of vitamin C to improve coil stability likely are not warranted.. The dose of vitamin C was selected based on our preliminary dose escalation study where four groups of aneurysms were purposely loosely packed with coils (packing density ,25%) and animals in each group were fed a diet containing 0, 866, 1732 and 4330 ppm vitamin C, respectively, for 12 weeks. These parts per million correspond to 0, 40, 80 and 200 mg of ...

BACKGROUND: Published associations between dietary carotenoids and vitamin C and bladder cancer risk are inconsistent. Biomarkers may provide more accurate measures of nutrient status. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the association between plasma carotenoids and vitamin C and risk of urothelial cell carcinoma (UCC) in a case-control study nested within the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition. DESIGN: A total of 856 patients with newly diagnosed UCC were matched with 856 cohort members by sex, age at baseline, study center, date and time of blood collection, and fasting status. Plasma carotenoids (α- and β-carotene, β-cryptoxanthin, lycopene, lutein, and zeaxanthin) were measured by using reverse-phase HPLC, and plasma vitamin C was measured by using a colorimetric assay. Incidence rate ratios (IRRs) were estimated by using conditional logistic regression with adjustment for smoking status, duration, and intensity. RESULTS: UCC risk decreased with higher concentrations of the sum
