Evaluation of mitochondrial respiratory chain activity in muscle healing by low-level laser therapy.
BACKGROUND Recent studies demonstrate that low-level laser therapy (LLLT) modulates many biochemical processes, especially the decrease of muscle injures, the increase in mitochondrial respirationExpand

Taurine supplementation decreases oxidative stress in skeletal muscle after eccentric exercise
Infrequent exercise, typically involving eccentric actions, has been shown to cause oxidative stress and to damage muscle tissue. High taurine levels are present in skeletal muscle and may play aExpand

Effects of low-level laser therapy (GaAs) in an animal model of muscular damage induced by trauma
It has been demonstrated that reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation and oxidative damage markers are increased after muscle damage. Recent studies have demonstrated that low-level laser therapyExpand

Vitamin E supplementation decreases muscular and oxidative damage but not inflammatory response induced by eccentric contraction
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of vitamin E supplementation on muscular and oxidative damage, as well as the inflammatory response induced by eccentric exercise (EE) inExpand

N-acetylcysteine supplementation and oxidative damage and inflammatory response after eccentric exercise.
The objective of the study was to verify the effect of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) supplementation on parameters of oxidative damage and inflammatory response after high-intensity eccentric exercise (EE).Expand

Effects of low-power laser irradiation (LPLI) at different wavelengths and doses on oxidative stress and fibrogenesis parameters in an animal model of wound healing
Gallium-arsenide (GaAs) and helium-neon (HeNe) lasers are the most commonly used low-energy lasers in physiotherapy for promoting wound healing and pain modulation. The aim of this study wasExpand

Physical exercise increases mitochondrial function and reduces oxidative damage in skeletal muscle
The present study investigated mitochondrial adaptations and oxidative damage after 4 and 8 weeks of running training in skeletal muscle of mice. Twenty-one male mice (CF1, 30–35 g) were distributedExpand

Attenuation of bleomycin-induced lung injury and oxidative stress by N-acetylcysteine plus deferoxamine.
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) play an important role in the pathogenesis of pulmonary injury and antioxidant therapy may be useful with impaired oxidative defense mechanism. This study examines theExpand

Creatine supplementation does not decrease oxidative stress and inflammation in skeletal muscle after eccentric exercise
Abstract Thirty-six male rats were used; divided into 6 groups (n = 6): saline; creatine (Cr); eccentric exercise (EE) plus saline 24 h (saline + 24 h); eccentric exercise plus Cr 24 h (Cr + 24 h);Expand

N-acetylcysteine and deferoxamine reduce pulmonary oxidative stress and inflammation in rats after coal dust exposure.
Coal dust inhalation induces oxidative damage and inflammatory infiltration on lung parenchyma. Thus, the aim of this study was to determine whether N-acetylcysteine (NAC) administered alone or inExpand
