The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews

BACKGROUND: Molluscum contagiosum is a common skin infection that is caused by a pox virus and occurs mainly in children. The infection usually resolves within months in people without immune deficiency, but treatment may be preferred for social and cosmetic reasons or to avoid spreading the infection. A clear evidence base supporting the various treatments is lacking.This is an update of a Cochrane Review first published in 2006, and updated previously in 2009.

The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews

BACKGROUND: Molluscum contagiosum is a common skin infection, caused by a virus, which will usually resolve within months in people with a normal immune system. Many treatments have been promoted for molluscum contagiosum but a clear evidence base supporting them is lacking. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of management strategies (including waiting for natural resolution) for cutaneous, non-genital molluscum contagiosum in healthy people.

A new theory of aging based on the rate of DNA damage is presented, and the relationship between the rate of oxidative DNA damage and maximum life span (MLS) of mammalian species is explored. In humans the level of oxidative DNA damage, as measured by urinary biomarkers, can be modulated by caloric restriction and dietary composition. Consequently, longevity may depend not only on the basal metabolic rate but also on dietary caloric intake and the type of diet.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Free radicals are implicated in the aetiology of some gastrointestinal disorders such as gastric ulcer, colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. In the present study we investigated the antioxidant and genoprotective activity of some rotenoids (i.e. boeravinones) isolated from the roots of Boerhaavia diffusa, a plant used in the Ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract.
