UNLABELLED PREMISES AND OBJECTIVES: Antioxidant plays an important role in preventing the progression of diabetes mellitus (DM) complications. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of alpha lipoic acid (ALA) supplementation on plasma lipid, oxidative stress and vascular changes in diabetic rats. MATERIAL AND METHODS Diabetes was induced by a single intravenous injection of streptozotocin (STZ) (50 mg/kg). The diabetic rats were divided into two groups: (i) supplemented…

Adverse cardiac responses to alpha-lipoic acid in a rat-diabetic model: possible mechanisms?

TLDR
Data showed that ALA supplementation failed to prevent cardiac complications in diabetic rats and led to cardiac toxicity in normal rats as indicated by pathological changes (cellular infiltration, fibrosis, and degeneration) and by the elevation of serum cardiac biomarkers compared with normal controls.

The Effect of Alpha Lipoic Acid in Preventing Atherosclerosis Lesion on the Abdominal Aorta of Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 Rats

TLDR
This study showed that DM+ALA treated group  achieved lower atherosclerosis scores than DM-treated group and the difference between the two groups was statistically significant and in conclusion, alpha lipoic acid can prevent Atherosclerosis lesions induced by diabetes.

The effect of alpha-lipoic acid on expression of VCAM-1 in type 2 diabetic rat

TLDR
In conclusion, ALA showed protective effects against early atherosclerosis in diabetic rats, and there were no significant differences between groups in intensity of VCAM-1.

Testicular oxidative damage and role of combined antioxidant supplementation in experimental diabetic rats

TLDR
An important role of testicular oxidative damage and germ cell apoptosis in diabetes-induced infertility could be suggested, treatment with antioxidants has a protective effect by restoring SOD and GPx antioxidant enzymatic activity.

Effect of Momordica charantia fruit extract on vascular complication in type 1 diabetic rats

TLDR
Treatment with the MC fruit extract exerted the significant vasculoprotective effect in the type 1 diabetic rat model and showed a significant decrease in blood pressure, total cholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to the control group.

Original article: EFFECT OF MOMORDICA CHARANTIA FRUIT EXTRACT ON VASCULAR COMPLICATION IN TYPE 1 DIABETIC RATS

TLDR
Treatment with the MC fruit extract exerted the significant vasculoprotective effect in the type 1 diabetic rat model and showed a significant decrease in blood pressure, total cholesterol and triglyceride levels compared to the control group.

Ameliorative effects of α-lipoic acid on high-fat diet-induced oxidative stress and glucose uptake impairment of T cells

TLDR
Findings reveal that oxidative stress of T cells caused by HFD may be a key factor leading to glucose metabolism reduction and proliferative capability and function impairment of T Cells, and LA, as a potent agonist, could promote Nrf2 nuclear translocation and up-regulate expression of NRF2 target genes, which can eliminate excess ROS and restore redox balance of cells.

Hibiscus sabdariffa (ROSELLE) POLYPHENOL-RICH EXTRACT PREVENTS THE AORTIC OXIDATIVE DAMAGE IN TYPE 1 DIABETIC RATS

TLDR
HPE might have a potential in minimizing the risk of vascular damage in diabetic conditions by reducing plasma glucose level, blood pressure and improved dyslipidemia.

Ameliorating Effect of Alpha-lipoic Acid on Methotrexate-induced Histological and Biochemical Changes in The Lung of Adult Albino Rat

TLDR
Co-administration of ALA can protect the lungs against oxidative damage induced by MTX, and there was an overt improvement in histopathological changes and SOD activity in ALA+MTX group.

TLDR
In chronic diabetes an attenuation of severity of diabetes was present throughout the post- injection period, which was well reflected in the improved antioxidant status and capacity.
