Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a rare malignancy in most parts of the world, with an incidence well under 1 per 100 000 person-years. Exceptions are the Chinese, especially the Cantonese living in the central region of Guangdong Province in Southern China. Other populations with elevated rates include the natives of Southeast Asia, the natives of the Artic region,

The photoprotective potential of the dietary antioxidants vitamin C, vitamin E, lycopene, β-carotene, and the rosemary polyphenol, carnosic acid, was tested in human dermal fibroblasts exposed to ultraviolet-A (UVA) light. The carotenoids were prepared in special nanoparticle formulations together with vitamin C and/or vitamin E. Nanoparticle formulations, in contrast to dimethylsulphoxide, stablized lycopene in the cell culture medium and allowed efficient cellular uptake.

Vitamin C is an essential dietary nutrient required as a co-factor for many enzymes, and humans are among the few animals that lack the ability to synthesize the compound from glucose. The reduced form of the vitamin, ascorbic acid, is an especially effective antioxidant owing to its high electron-donating power and ready conversion back to the active reduced form.

Background: The pathogenesis of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is associated with a defective host antiviral immune response and intrahepatic oxidative stress. Oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation play major roles in the fatty liver accumulation (steatosis) that leads to necro-inflammation and necrosis of hepatic cells. Previous trials suggested that antioxidative may have a beneficial effect on patients with chronic HCV infection.

OBJECTIVE:. Inflammatory rheumatic conditions including rheumatoid arthritis and Sjögren's syndrome have been reported in individuals infected with human T cell lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I). Other chronic lymphotropic virus infections such as hepatitis C and human immunodeficiency virus are associated with fibromyalgia (FM). There are no reports about the association between HTLV-I infection and FM.

Introduction. Thirty-seven-year-old male heavy-duty mechanic with two-year history of whiplash related neck pain reached maximum improvement with physio and extraarticular prolo . He subsequently obtained further temporary relief with radiofrequency zygapophyseal neurotomy before attaining long-term relief with intraarticular prolo .
Methods. Intraarticular prolo was done on four occasions under fluoroscopic guidance by placing 1cc of 20% dextrose and 0.75% lidocaine solution into the zygapophyseal joints.

Objective: To determine whether prolo is effective in the results of deficient load transfer of the SIJ.
Design: A prospective descriptive study.
Setting: Authors’ private practice.
Participants: 25 patients who consented to results and attended for at least one follow up visit and assessment.

Objectives: To determine the clinical benefits of dextrose prolo in patients with chronic spinal pain.
Design: Retrospective case series.
Setting/location: During the first 2 years at an outpatient prolo clinic.
Subjects: One hundred and seventy-seven (177) consecutive patients with a history of chronic spinal pain completed prolo results and were followed for a period ranging from 2 months to 2.5 years.
