In Vivo Treatment of Humans with Quinic Acid Enhances DNA Repair and Reduces the Influence of lifestyle Factors on Risk to Disease

  title={In Vivo Treatment of Humans with Quinic Acid Enhances DNA Repair and Reduces the Influence of lifestyle Factors on Risk to Disease},
  author={Ronald W. Pero and Harald Lund},
Objectives: To test the hypothesis that in vivo oxidation of serum protein thiols can be used to estimate other clinical compromising events going on in the body such as the effectiveness of DNA repair and lifestyle-induced clinical responses Design and Methods: (i) Serum protein thiols were quantified in 200 μl blood serum after treatment with saturated ammonium sulfate to give 80% of the saturated level and then further treatment with the colorimetric agent 5,5dithio-bis-(2-nitrobenzoic acid… Expand

The results revealed that in the presence of permanent loss of OHC amplification, the loss of neural sensitivity could be rescued, and these results encourage further experiments aimed at preserving neural functions following noise injury. Expand


Reduced level of serum thiols in patients with a diagnosis of active disease.
Comparing the levels of apparently healthy subjects to those of individuals with an active disease diagnosis strongly confirms an important role of oxidative stress in human disease development, and identifies serum thiol status as a potential biochemical endpoint useful in the assessment of aging.

Progress in identifying clinical relevance of inhibition, stimulation and measurements of poly ADP-ribosylation.
A mechanism of endogenous regulation of human mononuclear leucocyte ADP-ribosylation has been identified to be HOCl/N-chloramine production via the oxidative burst of phagocytes, which are potent oxidants of thiol-containing proteins. Expand

Data showing enhanced effects on DNA repair and immune cell proliferative response support a general immune enhancement and the recovery by C-Med-100 treatment was a more natural process than Neupogen because all fractions of white blood cells were proportionally increased while Ne upogen mainly elevated the neutrophil cells.

Antioxidant metabolism induced by quinic acid. increased urinary excretion of tryptophan and nicotinamide
Data are presented to support the hypothesis that quinic acid is not responsible for any efficacy, but rather thatQuinic acid nutritionally supports the synthesis of tryptophan and nicotinamide in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, and that this in turn leads to DNA repair enhancement and NF‐kB inhibition via increased Nicotinamide and tryPTophan production.
