5 Antioxidants Associated with Oncogenic HPV Infection
Study results showed that lower levels of serum albumin and four dietary antioxidants – vitamins A, B2, E, and folate — were associated with a higher risk of HR-HPV infection. Albumin is the most bountiful circulating protein in plasma, and decreased serum albumin was found to be associated with increased systemic inflammation and impaired immune response. Based on the four dietary antioxidants, the researchers developed a nutritional antioxidant score.
