Low-density lipoprotein oxidation is believed to play an important role in the development of atherosclerosis and therefore a high resistance of LDL against oxidation may prevent atherogenesis and accompanying disorders. Several secondary plant metabolites have been tested for their ability to prevent oxidation of LDL and many phenolics as well as(More)
All inflammatory processes include oxygen-activating processes where reactive oxygen species are produced. Intrinsic radical scavenging systems or compounds administered with food warrant metabolic control within certain limits. Antioxidants, which in many cases are free radical scavengers or quenchers of activated states, comprise a vast number of classes(More)
Two drugs composed of several different plant extracts are in use in Ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of asthma and arthritis, respectively. There is increasing evidence that reactive oxygen species (ROS) arising from several enzymatic reactions are mediators of inflammatory events such as the above mentioned. Plant extracts have the potential for(More)
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation may play a significant role in atherogenesis. Flavonoids are well-known for their excellent antioxidative capacity in various model systems, therefore we examined the behaviour of rutin, a quercetin-3-rutinosid, in the copper-mediated LDL oxidation. Rutin alone has been shown to protect LDL against oxidation.(More)
