PABA is a well-known water-soluble vitamin H1 of group B (folic acid). Its high genetic activity as an antimutagen and antioxidant agent has proven in vivo and in vitro. The new scientific data on the mutual PABA + NO application gave rise to some amazing results. Complex PABA/NO is a nitric oxide-releasing agent which selectively activated in cancer cells to over express GSTP1. PABA/NO was efficient in some cancer models in vivo and in vitro. PABA/NO is a promising prodrug in medicine.

Keywords: Para-Aminobenzoic Acid; PABA/NO; Antioxidant Functions; The DNA Repair SOS Processes Inhibitor
