*  Serum Vitamin C Concentration Was Inversely Associated With Subsequent 20-Year Incidence of Stroke in a Japanese Rural...
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 ...

*  HealthyMuslim.Com | Plasma Vitamin C Concentrations in Patients on Routine Hemodialysis and Its Relationship to Patients'...
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 ...

*  Study of Plasma Ascorbic Acid Levels in Wheezing Children - Cogprints
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 ...

In this study, we examined changes in radical-scavenging activity, as well as in ascorbic acid content, total phenol content and color, in 6 kinds of shredded vegetables during storage. Radical-scavenging activity, ascorbic acid content and total phenol content of red cabbage were initially higher than those of the other vegetables. In shredded vegetables stored at 10°C for 7 days under air or under nitrogen gas, radical-scavenging activity remained unchanged, but ascorbic acid in green pepper decreased in the first day and remained unchanged thereafter. Total phenolics also remained relatively constant in shredded vegetables during storage..

*  Changes in carotenoid and ascorbic acid contents in fruits of different tomato genotypes related to the depletion of UVB...
The aim of the present study was to investigate if the depletion of UV-B radiation affected the most representative carotenoids as well as the ascorbic acid content in tomato fruits, harvested at both breaker and firm red stages. To do this, three tomato genotypes, DRW 5981, HP 1, and Esperanza, were grown inside a greenhouse either covered with polyethylene transparent to UV-B or depleted of UV-B by a special covering film. The antioxidant properties of the fruits were evaluated on the water-insoluble fractions according to the ABTS method. UV-B effect on antioxidant activity was negligible in DRW and HP 1 genotypes, whereas it was detrimental in Esperanza at both ripening stages. This genotype seems to have a negligible capability of accumulating carotenoids and a great susceptibility to detrimental effects of UV-B; conversely, the DRW genotype shows high carotenoid levels under sunlight conditions and a further promotion by UV-B. On the other hand, the HP 1 mutant ...

Low maternal dietary vitamin E (but not vitamin C) intake during pregnancy has been associated with increased in vitro cord blood mononuclear cell (CBMC) proliferative responses, childhood wheezing and asthma. We investigated whether these associations reflect direct effects of vitamin E by investigating the effects of supplementing CBMC cultures with physiological concentrations of vitamin E. CBMC from seventy neonates were cultured supplemented with either nothing, α-tocopherol or ascorbic acid. Proliferative, IFN-γ, IL-4, IL-10 and TGF-β responses were measured. In general, vitamin E supplementation was associated with a trend for reduced proliferative responses after stimulation with antigens and house dust mite, and with increased proliferation after stimulation with timothy grass allergen. There was a trend for CBMC cultures to exhibit decreased secretion of IFN-γ, IL-10 and IL-4. Supplementation with vitamin C had no effect on CBMC proliferation, but increased IFN-γ ...

*  Ascorbic Acid Reverses Endothelial Vasomotor Dysfunction in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease | Circulation
Background In the setting of atherosclerosis, endothelial vasomotor function is abnormal. Increased oxidative stress has been implicated as one potential mechanism for this observation. We therefore hypothesized that an antioxidant, ascorbic acid, would improve endothelium-dependent arterial dilation in patients with coronary artery disease. Methods and Results Brachial artery endothelium-dependent dilation in response to hyperemia was assessed by high-resolution vascular ultrasound before and 2 hours after oral administration of either 2 g ascorbic acid or placebo in a total of 46 patients with documented coronary artery disease. Plasma ascorbic acid concentration increased 2.5-fold 2 hours after treatment (46±8 to 114±11 μmol/L, P=.001). In the prospectively defined group of patients with an abnormal baseline response (,5% dilation), ascorbic acid produced marked ...

*  Vitamin C Infusions - where's the evidence? | I2P
Why was I offered an infusion of vitamin C?. With my compromised immune system, I am susceptible to bacterial infections. As getting the best available treatment urgently has been drummed into me by my medical team, I do my best to avoid any kind of preventable illness. I had not heard of a vitamin C infusion as a first line of treatment, so asked for the evidence. I was told that the practice "uses vitamin C a lot, and has some really excellent results for all kinds of conditions". The GP, too, was also unable to offer a plausible biological explanation. The infusion was to be administered by the practice nurse and was to cost $130.. This is not the only medical practitioner offering vitamin C infusions and other unproven interventions. A growing number of medical clinics, claiming to be 'holistic', 'integrative', 'anti-ageing' or 'health and wellness;' centres, are offering a "comprehensive integrated approach to health and delaying aging based upon the biology of the neuroendocrine system, ...

Purpose: : To investigate the effect of ultraviolet radiation-B (UVR-B) exposure on lens ascorbate concentration in the pigmented guinea pig. Methods: : Twenty 20 pigmented guinea pigs were randomly divided into two groups. One group received drinking water supplemented with 0 mM ascorbate while the other group received drinking water supplemented with 5.5 mM ascorbate, for four weeks. All animals were thereafter unilaterally exposed to UVR-B. One day after the exposure to UVR, the animals were sacrificed and the lenses were removed for measurement of intensity of forward light scattering. Ascorbate concentration was measured once in each lens using ultrafiltration and HPLC with UVR detection. Results: : There was no significant difference of ascorbate content between exposed and not exposed lenses in either of the 0 mM or the 5.5 mM group [t-test]. Anterior subcapsular cataract developed in all exposed lenses and none of not UVR-exposed lenses. In both the ascorbate-supplemented and the not ...

*  8-Isoprostaglandin F2a and ascorbic acid concentration in the aqueous humour of patients with exfoliation syndrome | British...
In the present study, the mean concentration of 8-IPGF in aqueous from patients with XFS and cataract was found to be approximately five times greater than that measured in the aqueous from age matched control cataract patients. Furthermore, in those patients with XFS mean ascorbic acid concentration was significantly decreased. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that the level of 8-IPGF has been assessed in the human aqueous humour.. Isoprostanes are formed by free radical mediated peroxidation of arachidonic acid and serve as biomarkers of lipid peroxidation and potential mediators of free radical injury. These molecules are geometric stereoisomers to cyclo-oxygenase generated prostaglandins with their hydrocarbon chains in a cis position in relation to the pentane ring.24 8-IPGF is produced by free radical attack on arachidonate, which resides on the SN-2 position of cell membrane phospholipids.18 The resulting esterified ...

*  The Body's Affect on Vitamin C - Tabular View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid, ascorbate) is an essential water soluble vitamin. Our studies at NIH were the first to demonstrate in healthy men and women how changes in a vitamin concentration in human plasma vary as a direct function of the amount ingested, over a wide range. ln the present study, we plan to achieve a prescorbutic vitamin C plasma concentration of approximately 5-10 micromolar in healthy human volunteers. We will gradually replete these subjects with incremental doses of vitamin C to measure how their plasma, red blood cell, and leukocyte concentrations will change as a function of the dose. We will also determine whether changes in vitamin C concentration result in changes in gene expression and metabolic profiles (metabolomics, lipidomics, proteomics).. Outpatient subjects will be encouraged to consume vitamin C in foods. As inpatients, vitamin C deficiency will be induced by placing subjects on a tightly restricted scorbutic diet. Plasma vitamin C will be ...
