Some of these, such as beta-carotene, are thought to have anti-cancer and other health benefits; and many people take one or more of them as a diet supplement.

Carotenoids—there are recognized types found in fruits and vegetables—are labile compounds that can create a number of breakdown products whose significance remains to be determined.

The carotenoids most commonly found in the skin are lycopene, beta-carotene, and oxidized carotenoids (xanthophylls), Cited by: 1.

“Vitamin A” refers to retinol, retinyl esters, retinal, and retinoic acid. Structurally, these carbon compounds all contain a cyclohexene ring (with three methyl groups substituted on it), connected to an isoprenoid chain (H 2 C C (CH 3) CH CH 2) which terminates in a polar carbon-oxygen functional group: CH 2 OH for retinol, CHO for retinal, and COOH for retinoic acid ().Author: Neal E.

Craft, Harold C. Furr. Retinoids are a class of lipophilic isoprenoid molecules that are related chemically to vitamin A [1]. Retinoids are composed of a β-ionone ring and a polyunsaturated side chain, with an alcohol (retinol), an aldehyde (retinal), a carboxylic acid (retinoic acid), or an ester (retinyl esters) functional group (Figure 1A).

In conclusion, dietary vitamin A, beta-carotene and lycopene might inversely correlate with pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is a devastating disease with poor prognosis and the 5-year survival rate remains low at 8% by: Various aspects of vitamin A deficiency and studies on carotenoids and retinoids in cancer development and prevention are reviewed in some detail.

Importantly, CARET, the largest chemoprevention trial to date of vitamin A and lung cancers, found a significantly increased risk of lung cancers in the retinol and beta carotene by: Beta-Carotene is a naturally-occurring retinol (vitamin A) precursor obtained from certain fruits and vegetables with potential antineoplastic and chemopreventive activities.

As an anti-oxidant, beta carotene inhibits free-radical damage to DNA. This agent also induces cell differentiation and apoptosis of some tumor cell types, particularly in early stages of tumorigenesis, and enhances.

It was found that there was an inverse correlation between vitamin A, beta-carotene and lycopene intake and the risk of pancreatic cancer (for vitamin A, pooled OR = Cited by: Carotenoids comprise a class of natural fat-soluble pigments which are found in numerous fruits and vegetables.

This in turn led to large dietary intervention studies, some of which explored the use of high doses of β-carotene in smokers and asbestos workers.

Introduction Retinoids are members, precursors or derivatives of the A vitamins. These include beta carotene, isotretinoin, tretinoin, 9 cis retinoic acid, and etretinate. The pharmacological uses of retinoids are diverse. Retinoids are used in the treatment of acne, vitamin A deficiency, photosensitivity.

Two trials, the Finnish Alpha‐Tocopherol, Beta‐Carotene Cancer Prevention (ATBC) trial and the Beta‐Carotene and Retinol Efficacy Trial (CARET), were conducted exclusively among individuals at a high risk for lung cancer.

Abstract. Epidemiological investigations have indicated an inverse relationship between vitamin A intake and risk for developing cancer, and over the past several years an extensive effort has been directed towards understanding the mechanism by which vitamin A and retinoids (analogs of vitamin A) inhibit carcinogenesis.
