REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES: A BOON OR BANE TO HUMAN HEALTH
TLDR
Protective antioxidant mechanisms which have abilities to inhibit the production of R OS by direct scavenging, decrease the amount of oxidants in and around the authors' cells, prevent ROS from reaching their biologi cal targets, and prevent oxidative stress thereby preventing the aging phenomenon.
Antioxidants: A review
Oxidative stress is defined as an imbalance between free radical production and antioxidant defense in favor of the first. Free radicals can exert negative effects on biomolecules and metabolic
Antioxidants in Prevention and Treatment of Diseases and Toxicity
TLDR
This chapter analyzes oxidative stress and its biomarkers and discusses antioxidant systems essential for preventing and ameliorating detrimental effects of ROS and RNS.
Free radicals and antioxidants in normal versus cancerous cells — An overview
TLDR
This review outlines the involvement of free radicals in different aspects of cancer, from prevention to initiation, progression, treatment and to reduce morbidity and mortality.
FREE RADICALS IN HEALTH AND DISEASES ─ A MINI REVIEW
TLDR
The best recommended action is to increase the intake of natural antioxidant by consuming cereals, pulses, nuts, fruits, vegetables, which seems to be a safe approach.
An introduction to oxygen free radicals.
Role of reactive oxygen species in gynecologic diseases
TLDR
The present review outlines the importance of reactive oxygen species in the pathology of various gynecologic diseases and the use of antioxidants in combating the harmful effects of oxidative stress.
Free radicals and antioxidants - quo vadis?
Free radicals and reactive oxygen species in programmed cell death.
TLDR
If oxidative stress is an important modulator of programmed-cell death, any ability intentionally to augment or inhibit it might ameliorate diseases in which the process is abnormally underactive or overactive.
