Influence of Selenium on Prostate Cancer Related Biomarkers

Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center researchers are trying to compare the effects of two different forms of selenium (selenium yeast and selenomethionine) on blood selenium levels and biomarkers of oxidative stress as primary endpoints. One in six men are at risk of getting prostate cancer in their lifetime. Participants will be asked to take over-the-counter selenium yeast supplements and selenomethionine or a placebo for nine out of twelve months.

The Use of Selenium to Treat Secondary Lymphedema - Breast Cancer

The primary objective of this study to assess the effectiveness of selenium compared to placebo in reducing the lymphedema in-patients with breast cancer. Secondary objectives are to assess the impact of selenium on patient’s quality of life and to assess the incidence of adverse effects of selenium therapy.

Correction of Selenium Deficiency Has Effect on Thyroid Function

Previous literature has found potential association between selenium deficiency and inactivated glutathione peroxidase and deiodinase, which may contribute to subsequent elevation of T4 and ratio of T4/T3. Conduction of a case-control study (ID: Liuyanping3) has been applied on Clinicaltrials.gov to further elucidate effect of selenium deficiency on thyroid function. Based on its data, the investigators will perform a randomized, placebo-controlled,single-blinded crossover stud...

Effect of Vitamin E and/or Selenium on Colorectal Polyps in Men Enrolled on SELECT Trial SWOG-S0000

RATIONALE: Studying tissue samples in the laboratory from participants receiving treatment on the Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial (SELECT) SWOG-S0000 may help doctors predict a participant's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment. PURPOSE: This phase III trial is studying the effect of vitamin E and/or selenium on colorectal polyps in men enrolled on SELECT Trial SWOG-S0000.

Selenium and Prostate Cancer: Clinical Trial on Availability to Prostate Tissue and Effects on Gene Expression

The aim of this study is to determine whether selenium supplementation leads to changes in selenium levels and gene expression profiles in prostate tissue.

Selenium and Immune Function

The aim of the study is to investigate the relationship between dose and form of selenium on immune function, and to identify functional markers of selenium status.

Vitamin E and/or Selenium in Preventing Cataract and Age-Related Macular Degeneration in Older Men Enrolled on SELECT Clinical Trial SWOG-S0000

Selenium, as Sodium Selenite, in the Treatment of Septic Shock

Septic shock is a frequent syndrome with a 45% mortality rate despite intensive care unit (ICU) care, where free radicals may play a key role, and a >40% decrease in plasma selenium concentration is observed. Selenium is a trace element with both indirect enzymatic anti-oxidant, and direct oxidant properties. High dose of sodium selenite administration could increase antioxidant cells capacities, and reduce inflammation by a direct paradoxical pro-oxidative effect. We conduct a...

Effects of High-dose Intravenous Selenium (Selenase®) in Adult Patients Subjected to Elective All-cause Heart Surgery
