Antioxidant effect of probucol on RO2*/O2(*-)-induced peroxidation of human low-density lipoproteins.

This study was designed to evaluate the antioxidant effect of probucol on peroxidation of low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) initiated by oxygenated free radicals (O2*-) and ethanol-derived peroxyl radicals (RO2*) generated by gamma radiolysis. Initial radiolytic yields related to the markers of lipid peroxidation [i.e. decrease in endogenous alpha-tocopherol… CONTINUE READING
