Evaluation of total reactive antioxidant potential (TRAP) of tissue homogenates and their cytosols.
This study evaluates the possibility of obtaining total reactive antioxidant potential (TRAP) indexes in homogenates and their cytosolic fractions by a procedure based on the quenching of luminolExpand
Antioxidant properties of natural compounds used in popular medicine for gastric ulcers.
The role of natural antioxidants derived from popular plants to reduce or prevent the oxidative stress in gastric ulcer induced by ethanol is considered. Expand

Peripheral parameters of oxidative stress in Graves’ disease: the effects of methimazole and 131 iodine treatments
This data indicates that high levels of oxidative stress in patients with Graves’ disease and in models of hyperthyroidism are associated with diminished antioxidation and the need for further investigation to determine the mechanism behind this decline. Expand
The oxidative stress induced in vivo by Shiga toxin‐2 contributes to the pathogenicity of haemolytic uraemic syndrome
It is demonstrated that Stx induced an oxidative imbalance, evidenced by renal glutathione depletion and increased lipid membrane peroxidation, which was ameliorated by anti‐oxidants reducing platelet activation, renal damage and increasing survival. Expand
Oxidative stress in blood of HIV infected patients.
The oxidative stress in human erythrocytes was studied in asymptomatic and symptomatic patients infected by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and patients with the acquired immunodeficiencyExpand
Total Reactive Antioxidant Potential (TRAP) and Total Antioxidant Reactivity (TAR) of Medicinal Plants Used in Southwest Amazonia (Bolivia and Peru)
The charge (relative concentration) of antioxidants in different extracts of medicinal plants used in southwest Amazonia regions of Beni (Bolivia) and Madre de Dios (Peru) was determined employing aExpand
The antioxidant enzymatic blood profile in Alzheimer's and vascular diseases. Their association and a possible assay to differentiate demented subjects and controls
It seems that SOD levels are stable, at least, within one year, and Variations appear to be linked with clinical changes. Expand
Type 2 diabetes and/or its treatment leads to less cognitive impairment in Alzheimer's disease patients.
In this longitudinal study the superimposed diabetic condition was associated with a lower rate of cognitive decline, while diabetic non-demented patients and controls present normal scores. Expand
The involvement of transition metal ions on iron-dependent lipid peroxidation
Metal transition ions promoted lipid peroxidation by H2O2 decomposition and direct homolysis of endogenous hydroperoxides and the understanding of the effects of transition metal ions on phospholipids is relevant to the prevention of oxidative damage in biologic systems. Expand
