Aluminium metal has important role in the field of medical sciences, but it has been found in various studies that Aluminium can cause numerous toxic effects. Studies have proven the strong affinity of the metalloelements for the sulfhydryl group (SH), present in reduced glutathione (GSH) and other biological molecules. In this context, the study about the possible interaction of Aluminium metal with glutathione in blood components was of interest, as an indication about the extent of Aluminium…

1H NMR characterization of complexation of Glutathione with silver and aluminum metals in aqueous solution

Metallo-elements have both pharmacological and toxic effects on plants, animals and humans. These are considered as a major public health issue worldwide. In particular, heavy metals such as silver

Studies on fate and toxicity of nanoalumina in male albino rats

The data indicated that rats injected with nanoalumina suffered from the oxidative stresses that were dose and time dependent and Al2O3-NPs released into the biospheres could be potentiating a risk to the environment and causing hazard effects on living organisms, including mammals.

Al-Qudis power plant was chosen, as one of the power stations of Baghdad, to investigate the effects of Cadmium that emitted from combustion of crude oil in that power plant on the workers'

The protective role of Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) on oxidative stress in normal and treated rats with aluminum oxide nanoparticles

There was a highly significant decreased in GSH concentration, SOD activity and CAT activity but significantly increased in MDA level in blood for rats treated with Al2O3-NPs compared to normal control rats.


The purpose of this work is to the determination of Aluminium in blood samples from Aluminium mines workers by using the ICP-AES technique. Based on this material, some conclusions will be drawn

Formulation, Characteristic Evaluation, Stress Test and Effectiveness Study of Matrix Metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) Expression of Glutathione Loaded Alginate Microspheres and Gel

The results of freeze-dried glutathione-loaded alginate microspheres with surfactant with a HLB value equal to 7 can be utilized as potential glutathion delivery systems.



Effect of aluminium metal on glutathione (GSH) level in plasma and cytosolic fraction of human blood.

The effect of Aluminum as helping agent for the Glutathione to enhance the antioxidant system of the body or a cause for depletion of reduced GlutATHione is shown.

The effect of Lithium on the Thiol/GSH level was discussed in vitro, which in principal may present a model of in vivo reaction.

Glutathione: Systemic Protectant Against Oxidative and Free Radical Damage

Its high electron-donating capacity combined with its high intracellular concentration endows GSH with great reducing power, which is used to regulate a complex thiol-exchange system (—SH —S-S—).
