HPV Selenium

Objectives. Human papillomaviruses (HPV) are associated with cell cycle arrest. This study focused on antioxidant selenomethionine (SeMet) inhibition of HPV-mediated necrosis. The objectives were to determine HPV-18 effects on embryonic cells and to evaluate SeMet in blocking HPV-18 effects. Methods. Fertilized mouse embryos were cultured for 5 days to implanted trophoblasts and exposed to either control medium (group 1), HPV-18 (group 2), combined HPV-18 and 0.5 µM SeMet (group 3), or combined HPV-18 and 5...

Individuals with inherited immunodeficiencies, autoimmune disorders, organ or bone marrow transplantation and with human immunodeficiency virus are particularly susceptible to developing severe, persistent and extensive manifestations of cutaneous human papillomavirus (HPV) disease. These complex cases require a unique and often multimodal approach to management. In this chapter, we discuss several states of immune compromise with increased susceptibility to HPV disease and review the literature on available management strategies including acitretin, cidofovir, Candida antigen, cimetidine, imiquimod, isotretinoin, fluorouracil, selenium, podophyllotoxin, photodynamic therapy, mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitors and the quadrivalent HPV vaccine...

Esophageal cancer is one of the most common cancers worldwide. It is a multifactorial disease, and no single agent has been identified so far as the sole cause of the cancer. Many factors like smoking, the consumption of alcohol, fungal-contaminated, spicy and various nitrosamine-containing food stuffs and hot beverages, nutritional deficiency of some vitamins like β-carotene, vitamin A, C and E and minerals like zinc, selenium and molybdenum, the use of opium, HPV infection and various genetic factors have been found associated with the occurrence of the disease worldwide...

OBJECTIVE: Host defense and latency determinants in viral recurrent dermatologic infections are not entirely understood, as conventional protocols are inadequate to achieve fast healing and relapse prevention. Endogenously produced oxygen/nitrogen reactive species (ROS/RNS) are essential for antiviral immune defense, while their excess may aggravate skin inflammation. Here, we sought a nutritional approach capable of controlling ROS/RNS balance to accelerate recovery and inhibit recurrences of two mucocutaneous chronic DNA-virus infections...

Trends toward increasing incidence rates were observed for esophageal and gastric cardia adenocarcinoma in Western countries and were associated with trends toward stabilizing or declining incidence rates for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, suggesting that these tumors might be associated with distinct risk factors. Overweight and obesity have been consistently related to esophageal adenocarcinoma, but not to squamous cell carcinoma. Body mass index seems to be inversely related to the risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma...

BACKGROUND: Women infected with HIV face a combination of health threats that include compromised nutrition and adverse gynecological conditions. This relation among HIV, nutrition, and gynecological conditions is complex and has rarely been investigated. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to investigate nutritional biomarkers associated with several gynecological conditions among US women with or at risk of HIV infection. DESIGN: Data on 369 HIV-infected and 184 HIV-uninfected women with both nutritional and gynecological outcomes were analyzed from a cross-sectional nutritional substudy of the HIV Epidemiology Research Study (HERS)...

Organ graft recipients have a high rate of pre-malignant and malignant epithelial lesions. Selenium directly influences the number of Langer-hans cells. In several studies selenium has shown its role in preventing various carcinomas, it was worth investigating whether it could prevent skin cancer linked to human papilloma virus (HPV). A multicentre, randomised, placebo-controlled, parallel group study in 184 recent organ transplant recipients was undertaken. Patients were treated for 3 years with 200 mug/day selenium (91 patients) or a matching placebo (93 patients), and then monitored for 2 years...

BACKGROUND: To identify the relationship of cervical cancer with pathogen infectious, cytokine and Se. METHODS: On the one hand regarded tissues of the carcinoma of the uterine cervix with 195 cases as the experimental group and ordinary cervical tissues with 75 cases as the control group. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to detect them. On the other hand applied ELISA to detect cytokine IL-2R, TNF and fluorescent luminosity technique to detect element Se in the serums...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the relationship between serum selenium and cervical cancer. METHODS: We conducted a case-control study of cervical cancer in five areas around Birmingham, AL; Chicago, IL; Denver, CO; Miami, FL; and Philadelphia, PA. Community controls were selected by random-digit dialing and were matched to invasive cervical cancer cases by age, race/ethnicity, and telephone exchange. Serum selenium was determined by neutron activation analysis. Logistic regression analysis controlling for known risk factors of cervical cancer, including human papillomavirus (HPV) type-16 measured serologically, was performed on 227 invasive cases, 127 in-situ cases, and 526 controls...
