Epub 2013 Jun 25. PMID: 23682970Abstract Title:  Evaluation of vitamin C for adjuvant sepsis therapy.Abstract:  SIGNIFICANCE: Evidence is emerging that parenteral administration of high-dose vitamin C may warrant development as an adjuvant therapy for patients with sepsis.RECENT ADVANCES: Sepsis increases risk of death and disability, but its treatment consists only of supportive therapies because no specific therapy is available. The characteristics of severe sepsis include ascorbate (reduced vitamin C) depletion, excessive protein nitration in microvascular endothelial cells, and microvascular dysfunction composed of refractive vasodilation, endothelial barrier dysfunction, and disseminated intravascular coagulation. Parenteral administration of ascorbate prevents or even reverses these pathological changes and thereby decreases hypotension, edema, multiorgan failure, and death in animal models of sepsis.CRITICAL ISSUES: Dehydroascorbic acid appears to be as effective as ascorbate for protection against microvascular dysfunction, organ failure, and death when injected in sepsis models, but information about pharmacodynamics and safety in human subjects is only available for ascorbate. Although the plasma ascorbate concentration in critically ill and septic patients is normalized by repletion protocols that use high doses of parenteral ascorbate, and such doses are tolerated well by most healthy subjects, whether such large amounts of the vitamin trigger adverse effects in patients is uncertain.FUTURE DIRECTIONS: Further study of sepsis models may determine if high concentrations of ascorbate in interstitial fluid have pro-oxidant and bacteriostatic actions that also modify disease progression. However, the ascorbate depletion observed in septic patients receiving standard care and the therapeutic mechanisms established in models are sufficient evidence to support clinical trials of parenteral ascorbate as an adjuvant therapy for sepsis.

PMID: 3462381Abstract Title:  The effect of controlled ascorbic acid depletion and supplementation on periodontal health.Abstract:  To determine if systemic levels of vitamin C influence periodontal health, changes in plaque accumulation, gingival health and periodontal probing depth were measured in healthy subjects housed for 3 months in a nutrition suite that provided controlled periods of ascorbic acid depletion and supplementation. Eleven healthy, nonsmoking men, aged 19 to 28 years, ate a rotating 7-day diet adequate in all nutrients except ascorbic acid. This basal diet, which contained less than 5 mg/day ascorbic acid, was supplemented with 60 mg/day ascorbic acid for 2 weeks, 0 mg/day ascorbic acid for 4 weeks, 600 mg/day ascorbic acid for 3 weeks and 0 mg/day ascorbic acid for 4 weeks. Plasma, urine and leukocyte ascorbate levels, Plaque Index, Gingival Index, Bleeding Index and probing depths were monitored throughout the study. A uniform oral hygiene program was maintained in which oral hygiene instructions were reinforced bi-weekly. Ascorbate concentrations in body fluids and leukocytes responded rapidly to changes in ascorbic acid intake. No mucosal pathoses or changes in plaque accumulation or probing depths were noted during any of the periods of depletion or supplementation. However, measures of gingival inflammation were directly related to the ascorbic acid status. The results suggest that ascorbic acid may influence early stages of gingivitis, particularly crevicular bleeding.

PMID: 21358394Abstract Title:  Ascorbic acid attenuates lipopolysaccharide-induced acute lung injury.Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: Sepsis-induced lung injury is a persisting clinical problem with no direct therapy. Recent work suggests that intravenously infused ascorbic acid improves the circulatory dysfunction of sepsis. We used a model of endotoxin-induced acute lung injury to determine whether parenteral ascorbic acid modulates the dysregulated proinflammatory, procoagulant state that leads to lung injury.DESIGN: C57BL/6 mice were exposed to lethal lipopolysaccharide doses (10μg/g of body weight) to induce acute lung injury.SETTING: Laboratory investigation.SUBJECTS: Wild-type C57BL/6 mice.INTERVENTIONS: Ascorbic acid or its oxidized form (dehydroascorbic acid) was administered intraperitoneally at 200 mg/kg 30 mins after the lethal lipopolysaccharide dose.MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: We quantified survival, lung capillary leak, proinflammatory chemokine expression, and lung microvascular thrombosis. Lipopolysaccharide induced 100% lethality in mice within 28 hrs of exposure and in lung we observed intense neutrophil sequestration, loss of capillary barrier function, exuberant pulmonary inflammation, and extensive microthrombus formation. A time-delayed infusion protocol of both ascorbic acid and dehydroascorbic acid significantly prolonged survival. Both ascorbic acid and dehydroascorbic acid preserved lung architecture and barrier function while attenuating proinflammatory chemokine expression and microvascular thrombosis. Ascorbic acid and dehydroascorbic acid attenuated nuclear factor kappa B activation and normalized coagulation parameters.CONCLUSIONS: Ascorbic acid administered in an interventional manner following lipopolysaccharide infusion attenuates proinflammatory, procoagulant states that induce lung vascular injury in an animal model of sepsis.

PMID: 3058110Abstract Title:  Effect of ascorbic acid on the disease caused by Escherichia coli challenge infection.Abstract:  In a series of experiments, leghorn-type chickens were fed diets containing from 0 to 880 mg of ascorbic acid/kg of feed beginning 1 day before air-sac challenge with Escherichia coli. Infection occurred in 46/60 (76%) of the controls and in 12/63 (19%) of those given feed containing 330 mg of ascorbic acid/kg. Levels of ascorbic acid above and below 330 mg/kg feed were less effective.
