  • Association between vitamin C Intake and the risk of cervical neoplasia: A meta-analysis - Nutr Cancer. 2016 Jan 5:1-10 - "In overall analysis, vitamin C intake was significantly associated with the reduced risk of CN (OR = 0.58; 95% CI: 0.44 to 0.75; P < 0.001). Subgroup analysis stratified by vitamin C dose indicated all dose categories achieved a reduced CN risk. Furthermore, increased vitamin C intake by 50 mg/day was related to the reduced risk of CN (OR = 0.92" - See American Health Products - Ester C W/Citrus Bioflavonoids, 1000 mg, 180 veg tablets at Amazon.com.
  • Association between Metformin Use and Mortality after Cervical Cancer in Older Women with Diabetes - Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev. 2015 Dec 31 - "Cumulative dose of metformin after cervical cancer diagnosis was independently associated with a decreased risk of cervical cancer-specific mortality and overall mortality in a dose-dependent fashion (HR 0.79 ... This finding has important implications if validated prospectively, as metformin is inexpensive and can be easily combined with standard treatment for cervical cancer" - See metformin at IAS.
  • Mushroom extract, AHCC, helpful in treating HPV - Science Daily, 10/28/14 - "Ten HPV-positive women were treated orally with the extract, AHCC (active hexose correlated compound) once daily for up to six months. Five achieved a negative HPV test result -- three with confirmed eradication after stopping AHCC -- with the remaining two responders continuing on the study ... Currently, there is no effective medicine or supplement to treat HPV, which is associated with more than 99 percent of cervical cancer cases ... several other cancers are related to HPV, including 95 percent of anal cancer, 60 percent of oropharyngeal, 65 percent of vaginal cancer, 50 percent of vulvar cancer and 35 percent of penile cancer ... AHCC increases the number and/or activity of Natural Killer (NK) cells, dendritic cells and cytokines, which help the body fight off infections and block tumor growth" - See AHCC at Amazon.com.
  • Antioxidant supplementation has a positive effect on oxidative stress and hematological toxicity during oncology treatment in cervical cancer patients - Support Care Cancer. 2012 Dec 14 - "Hematological toxicity and oxidative stress are common in cancer patients ... Randomized, single-blinded controlled trial in women with cervical cancer treated with radiotherapy and chemotherapy with cisplatin. Subjects were randomly assigned to receive antioxidant supplement or placebo supplement ... At the end of the oncology treatment, hemoglobin levels were maintained, and global QoL was better only in the supplemented group ... Antioxidant supplementation in patients treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy apparently decreased oxidative stress, maintained hemoglobin levels, and improved QoL" - See Garden of Life, Radical Fruits Antioxidant Complex at Amazon.com.
  • A Case-Control Nutrigenomic Study on the Synergistic Activity of Folate and Vitamin B12 in Cervical Cancer Progression - Nutr Cancer. 2012 Apr 20 - "methylene tetrahydrofolatereductase (MTHFR) gene ... Serum folate, vitamin B12 (chemiluminescence assay), and homocysteine (EIA) along with genetic polymorphisms of MTHFR gene (polymerase chain reaction/restriction fragment length polymorphism) were analyzed for 136 control subjects, 92 low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LSIL) subjects, and 94 invasive cervical cancer cases (ICC). Statistically significant associations between MTHFR polymorphisms, serum homocysteine, and folate levels with cervical carcinogenesis were not evident, but we found that these parameters acted as effect modifiers of serum vitamin B12. The risk estimates observed for B12 became prominent only when there was a deficiency in serum folate levels [LSIL-odds ratio (OR): 14.9 (95% CI: 2.65 to 84.4); ICC-OR = 8.72 (95% CI = 1.55 to 48.8)] or when MTHFR A1298C polymorphic variant was present [LSIL-OR = 9.8 (95% CI = 2.61 to 36.7); ICC-OR = 10.0 (95%CI = 2.5 to 39.3)]. The statistical significance of this effect modification was further studied using an interaction model, where only folate was observed to have an influence on B12 levels as suggested by the odds ratio of 7.11 (95% CI = 0.45 to 111.9) obtained for ICC group, implicating a synergistic role of these 2 vitamins in invasive cervical cancer" - See folic acid products at Amazon.com and vitamin B12 at Amazon.com.
  • Intakes of Vitamin A, C, and E, and beta-Carotene Are Associated With Risk of Cervical Cancer: A Case-Control Study in Korea - Nutr Cancer. 2010;62(2):181-9 - "Those patients in the highest quartiles of dietary vitamin A, beta -carotene, and vitamin C intakes had statistically significantly lower cervical cancer risks than those in the lowest quartiles for vitamin A, beta -carotene, and vitamin C: odds ratio (OR) = 0.36 [95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.19-0.69), OR = 0.48 (CI = 0.26-0.88), and OR = 0.36 (CI = 0.18-0.69), respectively. Total intakes of vitamins A, C, and E were strongly inversely associated with cervical cancer risk: OR = 0.35 (CI = 0.19-0.65), OR = 0.35 (CI = 0.19-0.66), and OR = 0.53 (CI = 0.28-0.99), respectively. The findings support a role for increased antioxidant vitamin intake in decreasing the risk of cervical cancer"

  • I3C and DIM: Keys to Cancer Prevention? - Nutrition Science News, 4/01 - "adults took 200 mg I3C twice daily for at least eight months and a mean follow-up at 14.6 months. Six out of 18 subjects (33 percent) had complete papilloma cessation, six others had reduced papilloma growth rates, and the remaining six saw no change in papilloma growth rate ... Another disease potentially induced by HPV is cervical cancer"
