Decreased membrane fluidity and altered susceptibility to peroxidation and lipid composition in overweight and obese female erythrocytes Published, JLR Papers in Press, July 1, 2004. DOI
The increased generation of reactive oxygen species that occurs in the condition of obesity may be responsible for oxidative injury to erythrocyte membranes, which could lead to a decrease in tissueExpand

Biochemical assessments of oxidative stress, erythrocyte membrane fluidity and antioxidant status in professional soccer players and sedentary controls
Background  Physical exercise is characterized by an increase in oxygen consumption by the whole body. This leads to a decrease in antioxidant levels that could promote both an increase in theExpand

Antioxidant properties of oregano (Origanum vulgare) leaf extracts.
We tested the antioxidant properties of both aqueous and methanolic extracts of oregano (origanum vulgare). They proved to be effective in the inhibition of all phases of the peroxidative process:Expand

Age- and dose-dependent effects of an eicosapentaenoic acid-rich oil on cardiovascular risk factors in healthy male subjects.
Supplementation with fish oils, rich in n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, modifies cardiovascular risk factors. However, dose-response relationships are poorly defined and whether similar effects areExpand

Studies on the antioxidant activity of milk caseins.
The antioxidant properties of milk casein subunits (alpha-casein, beta-casein and kappa-casein) were evaluated in liposomal models. All the subunits of casein are able to inhibit Fe-inducedExpand

Age-related increases in circulating inflammatory markers in men are independent of BMI, blood pressure and blood lipid concentrations.
OBJECTIVE To examine whether age-related increase in concentrations of circulating inflammatory mediators is due to concurrent increases in cardiovascular risk factors or is independent of these. Expand
