This study was aimed at determining the effect of vitamin E, vitamin C, and carnitine on intermittent hypobaric-hypoxia-induced oxidative stress (OS) in erythrocytes. For this purpose, male Wistar rats of 4 months of age were orally supplemented with one of the antioxidants prior to exposure to altitudes of 5700 m or 6300 m. Hemoglobin (Hb) and OS indices(More)
The aim of our study was to compare and assess the effectiveness of antioxidant mixtures on the erythrocytes (RBC) of adult male albino rats (Wister) subjected to simulated intermittent high altitudes--5,100 m (AL(1)) and 6,700 m (AL(2))--to induce oxidative stress (OS). To achieve our objective, we pre-supplemented four sets of animals with different(More)
We have investigated the effects of daily exposure to intermittent hypobaric-hypoxia to two simulated altitudes (5700 m and 6300 m) in adult male rats that had been regularly swim trained in normoxia at sea level prior to exposures. Superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) along with the oxidative stress (OS) indices,(More)
The present study was designed to induce oxidative stress in lipid and aqueous phases through azo bis(2-amidinopropane)dihydrochloride (AAPH), 2,2'-azobis 2,4-dimethylvaleronitrile (ADVN) and hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) either alone or in combination with vitamin C or vitamin El and to assess the vulnerability of rat erythrocytes to oxidative stress.
