Oxidative stress and pulmonary inflammation: pharmacological intervention with antioxidants.
TLDR
Although antioxidant drugs could play a useful role in the therapy of inflammatory lung diseases, their clinical impact is relatively modest at present and development of new drugs with improved lung bioavailability are necessary in the future.
Glutamine, as a precursor of glutathione, and oxidative stress.
TLDR
Recent literature concerning this recurrent topic is critically reviewed and glutamine supplementation in the clinical diet can be used to maintain high levels of glutathione and to avoid oxidative stress damage.
Sequential oxidative damage, and changes in iron-binding and iron-oxidising plasma antioxidants during cardiopulmonary bypass surgery.
TLDR
Cardiopulmonary bypass patients undergoing heart valve replacement surgery appear to be under oxidative stress, when compared with normal healthy controls, by showing increased levels of protein and lipid damage, and decreases in plasma iron-binding and iron-oxidising antioxidant activities.
Interaction of antioxidants and their implication in genetic anemia.

TLDR
The generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is a steady-state cellular event in respiring cells, and the potential application of antioxidant treatment as an adjunct therapy under these conditions will be discussed.
The photoprotective activity of nutraceuticals.
The good and bad of antioxidant foods: An immunological perspective.
Reactive Oxygen Species, Lipid Peroxidation and Antioxidative Defense Mechanism
TLDR
The oxidation of linoleates and cholesterol is discussed in some detail and the deleterious effects caused by the lipid peroxidation products are discussed.
Antioxidant Properties of Nigella sativa
TLDR
Antioxidants are defined as substances capable of delaying or inhibiting production of ROS intermediates, and cells can either make these antioxidants endogenously, or receive them through the diet.
