Atherosclerosis, the hardening of arteries under oxidative stress is related to oxidative changes of low density lipoproteins (LDL). The antioxidants prevent the formation of oxidized LDL during atherogenesis. Perhaps more than one mechanism is involved in the atherosclerosis disease where LDL is oxidized in all the cells of arterial wall during the development of this disease. The oxidation of LDL produces lipid peroxidation products such as isoprostans from arachidonic, eicosapentaenoic and… Expand
Alterations of antioxidant status in asymptomatic hypercholesterolemic individuals after resveratrol intake
TLDR
It is suggested that resveratrol acts synergistically with other antioxidants against oxidative stress and highlights the importance of hypercholesterolemic individuals consuming natural antioxidants instead of medications to reduce the risk of CVD, while the situation is still reversible. Expand
Obesity-Related Oxidative Stress: the Impact of Physical Activity and Diet Manipulation
TLDR
The role of oxidative stress and inflammation as associated with obesity-related diseases, the potential concerns and benefits of exercise-mediated oxidative stress, and the advantageous role of dietary modification, including acute or chronic caloric restriction and vitamin D supplementation are discussed. Expand
Sestrin 2, a potential star of antioxidant stress in cardiovascular diseases.
TLDR
It is speculated that Sesn2 plays an important role in CVDs by stimulating the process of antioxidation and promoting the adaptation of cells to stress conditions and/or the environment, opening a new avenue for related therapeutic strategies. Expand
Systemic oxidoreductive balance in patients without clinical manifestation of atherosclerosis
TLDR
Oxidative stress has clinical importance in the early stages of atherosclerosis and may be helpful in predicting its subclinical stage, and further studies are needed to determine the usefulness of tocopherol determination as a biomarker for Atherosclerosis risk evaluation. Expand
Dietary phytochemicals in the protection against oxysterol-induced damage.
TLDR
This review, summarizing the mechanisms involved in the chemopreventive effect of phytochemicals against the injury by oxysterols may constitute a step forward to consider the importance of preventive strategies on a nutritional point of view to decrease the burden of many age-related chronic diseases. Expand
Interplay of N acetyl cysteine and melatonin in regulating oxidative stress-induced cardiac hypertrophic factors and microRNAs.
TLDR
Investigation suggests that oxidative stress generated during the cardiac pathology may directly or indirectly regulate anti-hypertrophy pathway elements through microRNAs including antioxidant enzymes, which need further investigation. Expand
Cell Death via Lipid Peroxidation and Protein Aggregation Diseases
TLDR
The cell-death cross-linking between lipid peroxidation and protein aggregation was investigated and the roles of protein aggregation in the initiation and execution of non-apoptotic cell death was reviewed. Expand
Dietary total antioxidant capacity is associated with plasmatic antioxidant capacity, nutrient intake and lipid and DNA damage in healthy women
TLDR
It was found a positive correlation between DTAC and PTAC in young and healthy subjects, where presumably the endogenous defenses are fully functional, and this contributes to better understanding of the recommended dietary antioxidant intake for promoting health. Expand
Molecules and Mechanisms to Overcome Oxidative Stress Inducing Cardiovascular Disease in Cancer Patients
TLDR
The biology and mechanisms of ROS mediated oxidative stress in cardiovascular disease are described and strategies that potentially counteract the oxidative stress are discussed in order to fight the onset and progression of cardiovascular disease, including that induced by oncological treatments. Expand
Oxidation of cardiac myofilament proteins: Priming for dysfunction?
TLDR
These antithetical aspects will be discussed in this review with special focus on direct oxidative post-translational modifications of myofilament proteins that have been described to occur in vivo and to regulate actin-myosin interactions in the cardiac myocyte sarcomere and the feasibility of antioxidant therapy strategies as a potential treatment for cardiac disorders.

Review of human studies on oxidative damage and antioxidant protection related to cardiovascular diseases.
TLDR
One single assay of lipid peroxidation is probably not sufficient to serve as a marker for cardiovascular risk and there is a need for measurements of several markers; the use of biomarkers provides a logical scientific basis for major intervention trials of antioxidants. Expand
Oxidative damage and defense.
TLDR
Overall, the present data suggest that protection against oxidative damage and related disease is best served by the variety of antioxidant substances found in fruit and vegetables. Expand
Diabetes, oxidative stress, and antioxidants: A review
TLDR
There is a need to continue to explore the relationship between free radicals, diabetes, and its complications, and to elucidate the mechanisms by which increased oxidative stress accelerates the development of diabetic complications, in an effort to expand treatment options. Expand
Oxidative stress and the use of antioxidants in diabetes: Linking basic science to clinical practice
TLDR
New strategies with classic as well as new antioxidants should be implemented in the treatment of diabetes, as it is becoming clear that rather than merely scavenging reactive radicals, a more comprehensive approach aimed at preventing the generation of these reactive species may prove more beneficial. Expand
Role of antioxidants and oxidative stress in cardiovascular diseases
TLDR
There are evidences suggesting increase intake of antioxidants to be protective in cardiovascular dis eases, however, irrational and non judicial use of antioxidants can also increase the risk of p otential toxicity. Expand
The role of oxidative stress in the genesis of heart disease.
TLDR
The authors' knowledge about the role of free radicals in the pathogenesis of cardiac dysfunction is fast approaching the point where newer therapies employing antioxidants are in sight. Expand
The Changes of Superoxide Dismutase, Catalase and Glutathione Peroxidase Activities in Erythrocytes of Active and Passive Smokers
TLDR
The results suggest that the increased oxidative stress occurs in smokers, owing to the free radicals present in smoke, which might cause a decrease in antioxidant enzyme activities and oxidant/antioxidant imbalance. Expand
Extracellular superoxide dismutase.
TLDR
The extracellular space is protected from oxidant stress by the antioxidant enzyme EC-SOD, which is highly expressed in selected tissues including blood vessels, heart, lungs, kidney and placenta, which preserves nitric oxide bioactivity and facilitates hypoxia-induced gene expression. Expand
Scavenger Receptors, Oxidized LDL, and Atherosclerosis
TLDR
The persistence of receptors for OxLDL during evolution is probably accounted for by their role in recognition of ligands on the surfaces of oxidatively damaged or apoptotic cells, which has important implications in biology generally and specifically in atherogenesis, because apoptosis is a prominent feature of late lesions. Expand
Paraoxonase1-192 Polymorphism Modulates the Nonfatal Myocardial Infarction Risk Associated With Decreased HDLs
TLDR
Serum paraoxonase1 (PON1) appears to have a role in the protection of low density lipoproteins from oxidative stress, and the hypothesis that this polymorphism may modulate the myocardial infarction risk associated with low HDL cholesterol concentrations was tested. Expand
