Activation of oxidative stress by acute glucose fluctuations compared with sustained chronic hyperglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes.
CONTEXT Glycemic disorders, one of the main risk factors for cardiovascular disease, are associated with activation of oxidative stress. OBJECTIVE To assess the respective contributions ofExpand

Assay for measurement of intact B-type natriuretic peptide prohormone in blood.
BACKGROUND B-Type natriuretic peptide (BNP1-32) as well as the N-terminal fragment of the prohormone containing residues 1-76 (NT-proBNP1-76), both cleavage products of the precursor proBNP1-108, areExpand

Plasma osteoprotegerin is associated with mortality in hemodialysis patients.
Expression of bone proteins resulting from transdifferentiation of vascular smooth muscle cells into osteoblasts suggests that vascular calcifications are a bioactive process. Regulating moleculesExpand

Overproduction of reactive oxygen species in end‐stage renal disease patients: A potential component of hemodialysis‐associated inflammation
During the past decade, hemodialysis (HD)‐induced inflammation has been linked to the development of long‐term morbidity in end‐stage renal disease (ESRD) patients on regular renal replacementExpand

Extracts enriched in different polyphenolic families normalize increased cardiac NADPH oxidase expression while having differential effects on insulin resistance, hypertension, and cardiac
Insulin resistance and oxidative stress act synergistically in the development of cardiovascular complications. The present study compared the efficacy of three polyphenolic extracts in theirExpand

Phycobiliprotein C-phycocyanin from Spirulina platensis is powerfully responsible for reducing oxidative stress and NADPH oxidase expression induced by an atherogenic diet in hamsters.
The effects of spirulina and its chromophore phycocyanin, both without bound Se or selenium-enriched, were studied on plasma cholesterol, early atherosclerosis, cardiac production of superoxideExpand

Convective and diffusive losses of vitamin C during haemodiafiltration session: a contributive factor to oxidative stress in haemodialysis patients.
BACKGROUND Enhanced oxidative stress in haemodialysis (HD) patients may be considered as a risk factor for accelerated atherosclerosis. Reduced antioxidant defences include impairment in enzymeExpand

Involvement of oxidative stress and NADPH oxidase activation in the development of cardiovascular complications in a model of insulin resistance, the fructose-fed rat.
Growing evidences suggest a role of oxidative stress in hypertension and cardiac hypertrophy. The fructose (60%)-fed rat represents a model of metabolic syndrome, associating insulin resistance andExpand

Vascular calcification: from pathophysiology to biomarkers.
The link between vascular calcification (VC) and increased mortality is now well established. Over time, as clinical importance of this phenomenon has begun to be fully considered, scientists haveExpand

Superoxide production: A procalcifying cell signalling event in osteoblastic differentiation of vascular smooth muscle cells exposed to calcification media
Recent studies showed that hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) enhanced bone markers expression in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) implicated in osteoblastic differentiation. This study aimed atExpand
