Vascular oxidant stress early after balloon injury: evidence for increased NAD(P)H oxidoreductase activity.
Available evidence for oxidative stress after angioplasty is indirect or ambiguous. We sought to characterize the pattern, time course, and possible sources of free radical generation early afterExpand

Low‐level laser therapy (808 nm) reduces inflammatory response and oxidative stress in rat tibialis anterior muscle after cryolesion
Muscle regeneration is a complex phenomenon, involving coordinated activation of several cellular responses. During this process, oxidative stress and consequent tissue damage occur with a severityExpand

Overestimation of NADH-driven vascular oxidase activity due to lucigenin artifacts.
Several limitations have recently been described for lucigenin, a probe frequently used to assess the activity of vascular NAD(P)H oxidase, a major superoxide source. The preferential reducingExpand

Vascular NAD(P)H oxidase is distinct from the phagocytic enzyme and modulates vascular reactivity control.
An NAD(P)H oxidase has been hypothesized to be the main source of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in vessels; however, questions remain about its function and similarity with the neutrophil oxidase.Expand

Low-level laser therapy (808 nm) contributes to muscle regeneration and prevents fibrosis in rat tibialis anterior muscle after cryolesion
Muscle regeneration is a complex phenomenon, involving replacement of damaged fibers by new muscle fibers. During this process, there is a tendency to form scar tissue or fibrosis by deposition ofExpand

Quantitation of superoxide generation and substrate utilization by vascular NAD(P)H oxidase.
In vascular tissues, an NAD(P)H oxidase is the main source of superoxide; however, there has been much uncertainty regarding its activity and the levels of superoxide it generates. This problem hasExpand
