Key ResultA standardized extract of Phyllanthus emblica (trade named Emblica) was found to have a long-lasting and broad-spectrum antioxidant activity. The product has no pro-oxidation activity induced by iron and/or copper because of its iron and copper chelating ability. Emblica helps protect the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals, non-radicals and transition metal-induced oxidative stress. Emblica is suitable for use in anti-aging, sunscreen and general purpose skin care products.Expand

Oxidants and antioxidants: state of the art.
TLDR
In the development of new antioxidant therapies, the important question of how these drugs are incorporated in or commensurate with existing integrated physiologic radical-defense systems should be addressed.
Development of a simple antioxidant screening assay using human skin fibroblasts.
TLDR
A paradoxical effect and the cytotoxicity of flavin-NADH system increased when the authors added SOD to the cell medium and this simple and reliable antioxidant screening assay required no costly or radioactive equipment.
CHRONIC ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION‐INDUCED INCREASE IN SKIN IRON and THE PHOTOPROTECTIVE EFFECT OF TOPICALLY APPLIED IRON CHELATORS 1,*
TLDR
In the skin of albino hairless mice (Skh:HR‐l), chronic exposure of mice to sub‐erythemal doses of ultraviolet (UV) B radiation results in an increased skin level of non‐heme iron, which may be the result of a UVB radiation‐induced increase in vascular permeability.

TLDR
2-O-Octadecylascorbic acid (5k, CV-3611), one of the most potent and promising compounds, markedly inhibited lipid peroxidation and alleviated myocardial lesions induced by ischemia-reperfusion at an oral dose of 1 mg/kg in rats.

TLDR
The iron-driven Fenton reaction and lipid peroxidation are identified as possible central mechanisms underlying signal transduction of the UVB response.

Ultraviolet A radiation induces immediate release of iron in human primary skin fibroblasts: the role of ferritin.
TLDR
It is proposed that the oxidative damage to lysosomes that leads to Ft degradation and the consequent rapid release of potentially harmful "free" iron to the cytosol might be a major factor in UVA-induced damage to the skin.

TLDR
The hypothesis that iron-catalyzed formation of hydroxyl radical from superoxide anion radical (O-.2) and H2O2 requires the availability of at least one iron coordination site that is open or occupied by a readily dissociable ligand such as water is investigated.
