BACKGROUND Plasma reflects the situations of oxidative stress in blood. Curcumin as an additive in storage solutions is not explored. MATERIALS AND METHODS Blood was drawn from male Wistar rats (4 months old) and stored over a period of 20 days at 4 °C in CPDA-1. Plasma was isolated from stored blood at regular intervals. Oxidative stress markers were analyzed in controls and experimental samples (with curcumin 10mM, 30 mM and 60mM). RESULTS Antioxidant enzymes and sulfhydryls ameliorated… Expand
Prospects of Vitamin C as an Additive in Plasma of Stored Blood
Vitamin C could not sufficiently attenuate OS and hence, this opens the possibilities for further studies on vitamin C in combination with other antioxidants, in storage solutions. Expand
Prospects of curcumin as an additive in storage solutions: a study on erythrocytes.
Curcumin maintained hemoglobin and modulated antioxidant enzymes throughout storage, however, curcumin could not protect all proteins and lipids from oxidative damage completely. Expand
Influence of L-Carnitine on Stored Rat Blood: A Study on Plasma
This study attempts to analyze the role of L-carnitine in blood storage solution, citrate phosphate dextrose adenine (CPDA)-1, through OS markers including antioxidant enzymes, lipid peroxidation, and protein oxidation and found it beneficial in terms of increased antioxidant capacity and SH and decreased lipidperoxidation.

The Relationship of Oxidation Sensitivity of Red Blood Cells and Carbonic Anhydrase Activity in Stored Human Blood: Effect of Certain Phenolic Compounds
It is demonstrated that resveratrol, caffeic acid, and tannic acid in stored blood could decrease the sensitivity to oxidation of erythrocytes in vitro but did not exhibit such effects on CA activity. Expand
In Stored Human Blood, The Inhibitor Effect of Tannic Acid and Caffeic Acid on Lipid Peroxidation and Oxidative DNA Damage
Globally, approximately 80 million units of blood are donated in each year (1). At the end of 2015, about 2 million units of blood are collected by the Turkish Red Cresent in Turkey (2). Currently,Expand
Hepatocellular uptake of cyclodextrin‐complexed curcumin during liver preservation: A feasibility study
Curcumin reduced oxidative stress, lowered histological injury and did not change gene expression after WI/cold storage, and the use of CDC flush solution for the initial organ flush can offer a promising approach to the enhancement of liver preservation and the maintenance of its quality. Expand
Potential pharmacological interventions against hematotoxicity: an overview
This review presents the possible entities based on their antioxidant potentials, including their mechanistic pathways, to look for potential anti-hematotoxic compounds, which could be supplemented to exposed patients, thus reducing the toxic burden on blood cells. Expand


Influence of Antioxidants on the Quality of Stored Blood
It is suggested that antioxidants given to blood donors can improve red cell storage parameters by reducing cell damage caused by free radicals. Expand
Advanced oxidation protein products as a novel marker of oxidative stress in uremia.
The measurement of AOPP is proposed as a reliable marker to estimate the degree of oxidant-mediated protein damage in uremic patients and to predict the potential efficacy of therapeutic strategies aimed at reducing such an oxidative stress. Expand
Concentration dependent antioxidant/pro-oxidant activity of curcumin studies from AAPH induced hemolysis of RBCs.
It is concluded that curcumin exhibits both antioxidant/pro-oxidant activity, in a concentration dependent manner. Expand
Cytotoxic Effects of Curcumin At Various Concentrations and Role of Curcumin on Lipid Peroxidation and Activities of Antioxidant Enzymes of the Rat Peripheral Blood Lymphocytes
Abstract 4933 Background: Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) is an active ingredient of turmeric and has been suggested to have antiproliferative, pro-oxidant and cytotoxic effects (Das R, Apoptosis 2008).Expand
Effects of L-carnitine against oxidative stress in human hepatocytes: involvement of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha
It is suggested that L-carnitine could protect HL7702 cells against oxidative stress through the antioxidative effect and the regulation of PPAR-alpha also play an important part in the protective effect. Expand
The impact of simultaneous intoxication with agrochemicals on the antioxidant defense system in rat
The increase in oxidative stress and damage biomarker levels, as well as the alteration of the antioxidant defence system decreased testosterone, FSH and LH levels in the plasma of pesticide-treated rats, and should be considered indicative of involuntary exposure to residual agrochemicals. Expand

The results indicate that the erythrocytes are capable of attenuating ROS with 2 weeks of storage, which clearly indicates that prolonged storage may result in the onset of ERYthrocyte deterioration. Expand
Markers of oxidative stress in erythrocytes and plasma during aging in humans

The data suggest that in states of leukocyte activation and other types of acute or chronic oxidative stress such a simple regimen as controlled ascorbate supplementation could prove helpful in preventing formation of lipid hydroperoxides, some of which cannot be detoxified by endogenous plasma activities and thus might cause damage to critical targets.

Decreasing Oxidative Stress with Choline and Carnitine in Women
Objective: Fatty acid oxidation is predominantly a mitochondrial event, which is enhanced by dietary choline and carnitine supplementation resulting in extra reactive oxygen species (ROS) load. TheExpand
