The Use of Pentoxifylline and Vitamin E in the Treatment of Late Radiation Related Injuries

2014-08-27 03:50:08 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Patients with radiation induced injuries experience significant pain and negative effects on quality of life. Currently, no standard therapy for these patients exists, with some patients treated symptomatically, and others treated with hyperbaric oxygen or pentoxifylline/Vitamin E. This study will examine prospectively the safety and efficacy of using a regimen of pentoxifylline and vitamin E in patients with late radiation induced injuries.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.

A natural tocopherol with less antioxidant activity than alpha-tocopherol. It exhibits antioxidant activity by virtue of the phenolic hydrogen on the 2H-1-benzopyran-6-ol nucleus. As in GAMMA-TOCOPHEROL, it also has three methyl groups on the 6-chromanol nucleus but at different sites.

A natural tocopherol with less antioxidant activity than ALPHA-TOCOPHEROL. It exhibits antioxidant activity by virtue of the phenolic hydrogen on the 2H-1-benzopyran-6-ol nucleus. As in BETA-TOCOPHEROL, it also has three methyl groups on the 6-chromanol nucleus but at different sites.

A natural tocopherol and one of the most potent antioxidant tocopherols. It exhibits antioxidant activity by virtue of the phenolic hydrogen on the 2H-1-benzopyran-6-ol nucleus. It has four methyl groups on the 6-chromanol nucleus. The natural d form of alpha-tocopherol is more active than its synthetic dl-alpha-tocopherol racemic mixture.
