Lycopene inhibits disease progression in patients with benign prostate hyperplasia.
Lycopene is a promising nutritional component for chemoprevention of prostate cancer (PCa). A possibly beneficial role of lycopene in patients diagnosed with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), whoExpand

Enhancement of the UVA induction of haem oxygenase‐1 expression by β‐carotene in human skin fibroblasts
β‐Carotene has often been discussed as a means to reduce the risk of skin photodamage. We studied the antioxidative potential of β‐carotene in human skin fibroblasts exposed to ultraviolet A light.Expand

UV light, beta-carotene and human skin--beneficial and potentially harmful effects.
Solar radiation is one of the most important environmental stress agents for human skin, causing sunburn, premature skin aging, and skin cancer. Beta-carotene is discussed to protect againstExpand

Lycopene inhibits the growth of normal human prostate epithelial cells in vitro.
Lycopene has repeatedly been shown to inhibit the growth of human prostate cells in vitro. However, previous studies with lycopene have focused on cancer specimens, and it is still unclear whetherExpand

Combined lycopene and vitamin E treatment suppresses the growth of PC-346C human prostate cancer cells in nude mice.
Epidemiologic studies have repeatedly associated a high intake of lycopene and vitamin E with reduced prostate cancer risk. The present study examined the ability of the 2 compounds to reduce tumorExpand

Comparison of the relative bioavailability of different coenzyme Q10 formulations with a novel solubilizate (Solu™ Q10)
The relative bioavailability of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is markedly influenced by its delivery systems. The aim of this study was to compare four standard CoQ10 supplements available on the market withExpand

Enhanced inflammatory responses in α-tocopherol transfer protein null mice
Abstract The liver preferentially secretes α-tocopherol into plasma under the control of the hepatic α-tocopherol transfer protein (α-TTP). α-TTP-null mice (Ttpa−/− mice) are vitamin E deficient,Expand

Lung Tumor Development in Mice Exposed to Tobacco Smoke and Fed β-Carotene Diets
In human clinical trials it was found that the putative chemopreventive agent beta-carotene not only failed to protect active smokers against the carcinogenic action of tobacco smoke, but actuallyExpand

The effect of β‐carotene on the expression of interleukin‐6 and heme oxygenase‐1 in UV‐irradiated human skin fibroblasts in vitro
β‐Carotene is discussed as an anti‐oxidant micronutrient and singlet oxygen quencher in human skin, protecting against UV light‐induced damage. However, we recently demonstrated that β‐carotene has aExpand

Effect of lycopene supplementation on insulin-like growth factor-1 and insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3: a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial
Objective:Studies have suggested a link between lycopene and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). The aim of this study was to test the effect of lycopene supplementation on IGF-1 and bindingExpand
