Aims: To investigate the effect of vitamin treatment or supplements with purported antioxidant properties on the primary and secondary prevention of skin cancer using a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Methods: We searched PubMed, Embase and the Cochrane Library in June 2009. Among 398 articles searched, 11 articles on 10 RCTs were included in the final analysis. Results: In a fixed-effects meta-analysis of all 10 trials, vitamin treatment or supplements with purported… Expand
Antioxidant Supplements and Breast Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
It is shown that there is no sufficient clinical evidence to support the effectiveness of these supplements during the treatment of patients with breast cancer, and it is recommended that clinician do not emphasize on these supplements in breast cancer treatment. Expand
Vitamin and Mineral Supplements in the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease and Cancer: An Updated Systematic Evidence Review for the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force
TLDR
Limited evidence supports any benefit from vitamin and mineral supplementation for the prevention of cancer or CVD. Expand
Diet and Skin Cancer: The Potential Role of Dietary Antioxidants in Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer Prevention
TLDR
An overview of the role of AOs in preventing tumorigenesis is provided and four targeted dietary AOs are outlined, which may provide important guidance in future study design. Expand
Antioxidant supplements and cancer
TLDR
This paper will review the research conducted on the associations between antioxidant supplements consumption and cancers risk, especially on breast, prostate, lung and skin cancers. Expand
Total Antioxidant Capacity and Pancreatic Cancer Incidence and Mortality in the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian Cancer Screening Trial
TLDR
This is the first prospective study indicating that a diet rich in antioxidants may be beneficial in decreasing pancreatic cancer incidence and mortality and in a nonlinear dose–response pattern. Expand
Systemic Photoprotection
Purpose of Review Systemic photoprotection is an attractive concept; however, its use has been limited by a lack of robust evidence. We performed a review to evaluate the evidence for systemicExpand
Mini-review Reactive oxygen species in redox cancer therapy
The role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in cancer cells has been intensively studied for the past two decades. Cancer cells mostly have higher basal ROS levels than their normal counterparts. TheExpand
Dietary Polyphenols—Important Non-Nutrients in the Prevention of Chronic Noncommunicable Diseases. A Systematic Review
TLDR
The current review aims to present a wide spectrum of literature data, including the molecular mechanism of their activity and experimental model used, and summarize the recent findings on the multitude of physiological effects of dietary polyphenols towards the prevention of several chronic diseases. Expand
Reactive oxygen species in redox cancer therapy.
TLDR
The effect of antioxidants in cancer treatment, the effect of combined treatment of antioxidants with traditional cancer therapies, and the side effects of excessive antioxidant intake are examined. Expand
Modifiable CVD Risk Factors and Their Cancer Risk Obesity
Abstract—Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer are the 2 leading causes of death worldwide. Although commonly thought of as 2 separate disease entities, CVD and cancer possess various similaritiesExpand

Effects of antioxidant supplements on cancer prevention: meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
TLDR
The meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials indicated that there is no clinical evidence to support an overall primary and secondary preventive effect of antioxidant supplements on cancer. Expand
Efficacy of antioxidant supplementation in reducing primary cancer incidence and mortality: systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Beta carotene supplementation appeared to increase cancer incidence and cancer mortality among smokers, whereas vitamin E supplementation had no effect and Selenium supplementation might have anticarcinogenic effects in men and thus requires further research. Expand
A randomized, 12-year primary-prevention trial of beta carotene supplementation for nonmelanoma skin cancer in the physician's health study.
TLDR
This large-scale, randomized, primary prevention trial among apparently healthy well-nourished men indicates that an average of 12 years of supplementation with beta carotene does not affect the development of a first NMSC, including BCC and SCC. Expand
Antioxidant supplementation increases the risk of skin cancers in women but not in men.
TLDR
It is suggested that antioxidant supplementation affects the incidence of SC differentially in men and women. Expand
Effects of beta-carotene supplementation on cancer incidence by baseline characteristics in the Physicians' Health Study (United States)
TLDR
The PHS found no overall effect of beta-carotene on total cancer, or the three most common site-specific cancers, and the possibility of risk reduction within specific subgroups remains. Expand

BACKGROUND Although low dietary intakes of antioxidant vitamins and minerals have been associated with higher risks of cancer, results of trials testing antioxidant supplementation for cancerExpand
The SU.VI.MAX Study: a randomized, placebo-controlled trial of the health effects of antioxidant vitamins and minerals.
TLDR
After 7.5 years, low-dose antioxidant supplementation lowered total cancer incidence and all-cause mortality in men but not in women, suggesting that supplementation may be effective in men only because of their lower baseline status of certain antioxidants, especially of beta carotene. Expand
MRC/BHF Heart Protection Study of antioxidant vitamin supplementation in 20 536 high-risk individuals: a randomised placebo-controlled trial
  • Tw
  • Medicine
  • The Lancet
  • 2002
TLDR
Among the high-risk individuals that were studied, these antioxidant vitamins appeared to be safe, but, although this regimen increased blood vitamin concentrations substantially, it did not produce any significant reductions in the 5-year mortality from, or incidence of, any type of vascular disease, cancer, or other major outcome. Expand
Vitamin E in the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease and cancer: the Women's Health Study: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
The data from this large trial indicated that 600 IU of natural-source vitamin E taken every other day provided no overall benefit for major cardiovascular events or cancer, did not affect total mortality, and decreased cardiovascular mortality in healthy women. Expand
