In this study plasma levels of vitamin A, carotenoids, retinol binding protein (RBP), prealbumin (PA), HDL-and total cholesterol were determined in 19 female subjects with cervical dysplasia and compared to those of the healthy female subjects described in our previous research. Plasma levels of vitamin A and carotene were determined by a spectrophotometric method using trifluoroacetic acid, plasma RBP and PA by single radial immunodiffusion and HDL- and total cholesterol by enzymatic colorimetry.

Abstract

In this study plasma levels of vitamin A, carotenoids, retinol binding protein (RBP), prealbumin (PA), HDL-and total cholesterol were determined in 19 female subjects with cervical dysplasia and compared to those of the healthy female subjects described in our previous research. Plasma levels of vitamin A and carotene were determined by a spectrophotometric method using trifluoroacetic acid, plasma RBP and PA by single radial immunodiffusion and HDL- and total cholesterol by enzymatic colorimetry. Plasma mean values of vitamin A and HDL-cholesterol were lower (P less than 0.05 and P less than 0.01, respectively) than in the control group. On the contrary total cholesterol was higher (P less than 0.01) in the patients than in the control group. Vitamin A plasma levels were significantly related (P less than 0.01) to RBP and PA. No significant statistical correlation was found between the severity of the dysplasia and vitamin A plasma levels.
