J Natl Cancer Inst 2000 Jun 21;92(12):977-86

CONCLUSION:: A 2-year supplementation of retinyl palmitate and/or N-acetylcysteine resulted in no benefit-in terms of survival, event-free survival, or second primary tumors-for patients with head and neck cancer or with lung cancer, most of whom were previous or current smokers.
