Oxidative stress takes place due to an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the protection provided by cellular antioxidants. High levels of ROS are caused by tumor cells during tumor progression and may affect the functions of other important organs. The present study sought to investigate whether non-primary brain tumors affect reduced glutathione (GSH) levels and the activity of related enzymes in the brain. GSH contents, the activity of glutathione… CONTINUE READING
