Lipids of the sperm plasma membrane: from polyunsaturated fatty acids considered as markers of sperm function to possible scavenger therapy.
A specific composition of phospholipids and a significant concentration of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) have been shown to be present in sperm membranes and Seminal plasma has a highly specialized scavenger system that defends the sperm membrane against lipoperoxidation. Expand
Revised classification/nomenclature of vitiligo and related issues: the Vitiligo Global Issues Consensus Conference
During the 2011 International Pigment Cell Conference (IPCC), the Vitiligo European Taskforce (VETF) convened a consensus conference on issues of global importance for vitiligo clinical research, agreeing that disease stability be best assessed based on the stability of individual lesions rather than the overall stability of the disease as the latter is difficult to define precisely and reliably.

New developments in our understanding of acne pathogenesis and treatment
A summarized update of the current knowledge of the pathobiology of acne vulgaris and new treatment concepts that have emerged in the last 3 years is provided. Expand
Neuroprotective effect of vitamin E supplementation in patients treated with cisplatin chemotherapy.
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to evaluate the neuroprotective effect of antioxidant supplementation with vitamin E in patients treated with cisplatin chemotherapy. METHODS Between April 1999 andExpand
Rosacea – global diversity and optimized outcome: proposed international consensus from the Rosacea International Expert Group
Background  The absence of specific histological or serological markers, the gaps in understanding the aetiology and pathophysiology of rosacea, and the broad diversity in its clinical manifestationsExpand
Antioxidant activity, lipid peroxidation and skin diseases. What's new
The review summarises the possible correlations between antioxidant imbalance, lipid oxidative breakage and skin diseases, from both a pathological and therapeutic points of view. Expand

Since GSH, GSSG, and related compounds lack of strong chromophores or fluorophores, it is advantageous, in many assays, to derivatize the compounds in order to improve the detection limit with UV-Vis and to allow fluorescence, thus the most commonly used labeling agents are described. Expand
Melanins and melanogenesis: methods, standards, protocols
The aim of the paper was to define an unprecedented frame of reference built on cutting‐edge knowledge and state‐of‐the‐art methodology, to enable reliable comparison of results among laboratories and new progress in the field based on standardized methods and shared information. Expand
Modulation of Antioxidant Defense in Aspergillus parasiticus Is Involved in Aflatoxin Biosynthesis: a Role for the ApyapA Gene
Increased levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) were correlated with increased levels of aflatoxin biosynthesis in Aspergillus parasiticus and the results show that the lack of ApyapA leads to an increase in oxidative stress, premature conidiogenesis, and aflat toxin biosynthesis. Expand
Chemical and instrumental approaches to treat hyperpigmentation.
This review describes the different approaches to obtain depigmentation, suggests a classification of whitening molecules on the basis of the mechanism by which they interfere with melanogenesis, and confirms the necessity to apply standardized protocols to evaluate depigmenting treatments. Expand
