The exposure to environmental pro‐oxidant agents leads to the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the generation of bioactive molecules that can damage skin cells.
Ozone and Ozonated Oils in Skin Diseases: A Review
The stability and efficacy of the ozonated oils have been already demonstrated, but owing to a plethora of commercial products, the present paper aims to analyze these derivatives suggesting the strategy to obtain products with the best characteristics.
The Magic Velvet Bean of Mucuna pruriens
Studies on the biological effects of ozone: 8. Effects on the total antioxidant status and on interleukin-8 production.
While there is a clear relationship between the ozone dose and IL-8 levels, it is noticed that high TAS and PTG values inhibit the cytokine production, in line with the current idea that hydrogen peroxide, as a byproduct of O3 decomposition, acts as a messenger for the cytokines induction.
Biological definition of multiple chemical sensitivity from redox state and cytokine profiling and not from polymorphisms of xenobiotic-metabolizing enzymes.
Arginine-Based Inhibitors of Nitric Oxide Synthase: Therapeutic Potential and Challenges
A comprehensive list of inhibitors of nitric oxide synthases based on their structural characteristics, with an emphasis on major advances in this field, is discussed in this paper.
Acrolein-induced cytotoxicity in cultured human bronchial epithelial cells. Modulation by alpha-tocopherol and ascorbic acid.
Skin Damage Mechanisms Related to Airborne Particulate Matter Exposure.
Surprisingly, by transition electron microscopy analysis, it is shown that CAPs were able to penetrate skin tissues, contributing to the understanding of the cutaneous pathophysiological mechanisms initiated by CAPs exposure, where oxidative stress and inflammation may play predominant roles.
Comparative effects between electronic and cigarette smoke in human keratinocytes and epithelial lung cells.
