The antioxidant effects of dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA) and probucol were investigated in a human erythrocytic in-vitro model of diabetic oxidative stress, where xenobiotics were used to form methaemoglobin. 4-Aminophenol mediated haemoglobin oxidation in non-diabetic erythrocytes was not affected by the presence of either DHLA or probucol. However, with diabetic cells, there were significant increases (P<0.01) in 4-aminophenol-mediated haemoglobin oxidation in the presence of DHLA. Methaemoglobin… CONTINUE READING
