Summary In order to study the contribution of oxidant stress to the pathogenesis of experimental diabetic retinopathy, male streptozotocin diabetic Lewis rats were treated with the antioxidant and lipid-lowering compound nicanartine (80 mg/kg; n = 8, blood glucose level 16.7 ± 3.9 mmol/l; HbA1 11.8 ± 1.6 %) by oral supplementation for 6 months and compared with untreated diabetic (n = 6; blood glucose 18.1 ± 1.4 mmol/l; HbA1 11.5 ± 1.5 %) and untreated, non-diabetic rats (n = 8; blood glucose 4… Expand
Effects of inhibition of glycation and oxidative stress on the development of cataract and retinal vessel abnormalities in diabetic rats.
TLDR
The results indicate that cataract formation in diabetes involves both glycation and oxidative stress processes and the positive effect of probucol on cysteine/GSH metabolism imbalance indicates that derangements of one of the retinal defense systems against oxidative stress can be normalized by antioxidants.

Effects of inhibition of glycation and oxidative stress on the development of cataract and retinal vessel abnormalities in diabetic rats
Purpose. To study effects of inhibition of glycation, and oxidative stress on the development of cataract and retinal vessel abnormalities in diabetic rats. Methods. Diabetes was induced in maleExpand
Effects of antioxidant treatment on normal and diabetic rat retinal enzyme activities.
TLDR
The hypothesis that administration of exogenous antioxidants can restore a more balanced oxidative condition in diabetic rats is examined and it is found that combinations of antioxidants have different effects on retinal antioxidant enzyme activities than do individual antioxidants. Expand
Oral Carnosine Supplementation Prevents Vascular Damage in Experimental Diabetic Retinopathy
TLDR
The vasoprotective effect of carnosine might be mediated by the induction of protective Hsp27 in activated glial cells and normalization of hyperglycemia-induced Ang-2 levels in diabetic retinas. Expand
Reduction of retinal albumin leakage by the antioxidant calcium dobesilate in streptozotocin-diabetic rats.
TLDR
It is suggested that calcium dobesilate stabilizes blood-retinal barrier in diabetic retinopathy via an in situ antioxidant action, and further studies in patients are required to confirm such view. Expand
Vasoregression in incipient diabetic retinopathy
TLDR
Epoetin delta has antioxidative properties in organs affected by diabetes and may prevent incipient microvascular damage in the diabetic retina. Expand
Tenilsetam prevents early diabetic retinopathy without correcting pericyte loss.
TLDR
The data suggest that, independent of known properties, tenilsetam shows important rescue functions on endothelial cells which could be useful for the treatment of early diabetic retinopathy. Expand
Abnormalities of retinal metabolism in diabetes and experimental galactosemia. VII. Effect of long-term administration of antioxidants on the development of retinopathy.
TLDR
Long-term administration of antioxidants can inhibit the development of the early stages of diabetic retinopathy, and the mechanism by which this action occurs warrants further investigation. Expand
Early changes in lipid peroxidation and antioxidative defense in diabetic rat retina: effect of DL-alpha-lipoic acid.
This study was designed to (1) evaluate retinal lipid peroxidation in early diabetes by the method specific for free malondialdehyde and 4-hydroxyalkenals, (2) identify impaired antioxidative defenseExpand
Antioxidant properties of calcium dobesilate in ischemic/reperfused diabetic rat retina.
TLDR
Oral treatment with calcium dobesilate significantly protected diabetic rat retina against oxidative stress induced by ischemia/reperfusion, and whether the antioxidant properties of calcium do Besilate explain, at least in part, its beneficial therapeutic effects in diabetic retinopathy deserves further investigation.

Abnormalities of Retinal Metabolism in Diabetes or Experimental Galactosemia. III. Effects of Antioxidants
TLDR
The beneficial effects of antioxidants in diabetes and experimental galactosemia were not caused by the amelioration of hyperglycemia or retinal polyol accumulation and can be inhibited by dietary supplementation with antioxidants. Expand
Lipid peroxidation and retinopathy in streptozotocin-induced diabetes.
TLDR
It appears that free radicals and lipid peroxidation are involved in the etiology of diabetic retinopathy in the STZ rat model and may prove useful in diagnosis and monitoring of patients with diabetes. Expand
Aminoguanidine treatment inhibits the development of experimental diabetic retinopathy.
TLDR
It is indicated that advanced glycosylation product accumulation contributes to the development of diabetic retinopathy and it is suggested that aminoguanidine may have future therapeutic use in this disorder. Expand
Diabetic heart and kidney exhibit increased resistance to lipid peroxidation.
TLDR
It is concluded that diabetic tissues develop enhanced defense systems against oxidative stress and it is assumed that the lower levels of arachidonate contribute to their resistance to lipid peroxidation as well. Expand
Vanadium treatment of diabetic Sprague-Dawley rats results in tissue vanadium accumulation and pro-oxidant effects.
TLDR
The results show that diabetes caused significant alterations in the antioxidant defense system and that V therapy was associated with a marked deterioration in health of both control and diabetic rats. Expand
Increased oxidizability of plasma lipoproteins in diabetic patients can be decreased by probucol therapy and is not due to glycation.
TLDR
The increased oxidizability of LDL isolated from diabetic patients could be reduced to control levels by a 6-week standard treatment with Probucol, originally applied to reduce their blood cholesterol. Expand
Glucose and diabetic vascular disease 1
TLDR
New information about abnormal vascular physiology, ultrastructure, biochemistry, cell biology, and molecular biology now makes it possible to understand in an integrated fashion the major specific mechanisms by which hyperglycemia damages diabetic vessels. Expand
Glycation and Diabetic Complications
TLDR
A review of the mechanisms behind advanced glycation end products (AGEs) play a central role in the pathogenesis of diabetic complications and their effects on diabetic pathology concludes with a summary of AGE inhibition. Expand

TLDR
Collagen adducts from aged and diabetic individuals had absorption and fluorescence spectra identical to those of collagen samples that underwent nonenzymatic browning with glucose in vitro, suggesting their likely occurrence throughout the body could explain the correlation between arterial stiffening, decreased joint mobility, and the severity of microvascular complications in type I diabetics.

Toxicity of Mildly Modified Low-Density Lipoproteins to Cultured Retinal Capillary Endothelial Cells and Pericytes
TLDR
Mild modification of LDL resulting from separate or combined processes of glycation and oxidation may contribute to chronic retinal capillary injury and thus to the development of diabetic retinopathy. Expand
