Oxygen free radicals have been implicated as mediators of tissue damage in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The aim of our study was to assess the lipid peroxide products and antioxidant status in rheumatoid arthritis patients (RA). The study involved determination of two plasma lipid peroxide products, malondialdehyde (MDA) and conjugated dienes (CD), two plasma antioxidant vitamins (C and E) in 91 RA patients and 26 healthy subjects. The results showed that rheumatoid patients had…

Lipid peroxidation and antioxidant status in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

Higher oxygen free radical production, evidenced by increased MDA and decreased GSH, ascorbic acid, vitamin E and Catalase activity, support to the oxidative stress in rheumatoid arthritis is suggested.

Antioxidant status & lipid peroxidation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

There was an increased oxidative stress and a low antioxidant status in patients with RA and these changes are probably due to efforts for reducing lipid peroxidation and hence to lower tissue damage.

Evaluation of the effect of vitamin C on caspase 9 and oxidative stress in rheumatoid arthritis patients

After vitamin C supplementation, RA patients showed significant increase in TAC and vitamin C level and significant decrease in MDA and 8 OHdG levels, plasma caspase 9 level was not significantly affected after vitamin C supplements.

Oxidative stress and antioxidant status in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

Findings indicate that oxidative stress does occur in patients RA patients and treatment with antioxidant therapy to limit the disease process of RA patients needs to be assessed.

CHANGES IN PROTEIN SULFHYDRYLS, PROTEIN CARBONYLS AND LIPID PEROXIDATION LEVELS IN SERA OF PATIENTS WITH RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS: CORRELATION WITH DISEASE ACTIVITY

The level of ROS seems to increase and measurement of these markers may give information about inflammatory process in RA, and negative corelation was found between protein carbonyls and ESR and CRP in patients in remission.

Metabolic syndrome and the decreased levels of uric acid by leflunomide favor redox imbalance in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

The data demonstrated that NOx and NOx/TRAP are strongly associated with RA physiopathology, and suggest that inhibition of iNOS may become an interesting therapeutic approach for the treatment of RA.

Uric Acid as a Natural Scavenger of Peroxynitrite in a Sample of Iraqi Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Investigation of the status of oxidant/antioxidant in a sample of Iraqi patients with RA and the role of peroxynitrite and its natural scavenger uric acid demonstrated decreased serum uric Acid levels in patients withRA accompanied by decreased its effect as a natural scavengers of PN.

Lipid -peroxidation & Non-enzymatic antioxidant (Vitamin E & Vitamin C) serum levels in Anemic Rheumatoid arthritis patients

There was a raised oxidative stress and decreased non-enzymatic antioxidant in anemic rheumatoid arthritis patients and these changes are probably due to efforts for reducing lipid-peroxidation and hence to lower tissue damage.

Evaluation of Oxidative Stress (MDA) and some Immunological Markers in Immune Response in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis at Al Nasiriya City, Iraq

The results indicate the presence of molecular damage determined by oxygen free radicals in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and this is play main role in immune response of patients with RA.

Serum total sialic acid, lipid peroxidation, and glutathione reductase levels in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

Higher oxygen free radical production, evidenced by increased MDA support to the oxidative stress in rheumatoid arthritis is suggested by increased antioxidant activities of sialic acid in response to increased oxidative stress.

Chain breaking antioxidant status in rheumatoid arthritis: clinical and laboratory correlates.

Serum urate concentration in RA correlated inversely with oxidative changes in serum albumin and IgG, suggesting that serum urate might have an antioxidant role under certain conditions by limiting free radical induced oxidative changes to protein during inflammation.

Elevated risks of RA were observed at low levels of alpha-tocopherol, beta-carotene and selenium, but none of the associations were statistically significant.

Free-radical oxidation (peroxidation) products in serum and synovial fluid in rheumatoid arthritis.

Free-radical oxidation products in serum were significantly elevated in patients with RA compared to normal controls; the levels declined after treatment with a variety of antiinflammatory agents.

Oxygen free radicals , inflammation , and synovitis : the current status

There has been an explosion of interest in the putative role of oxygen free radicals as agents of tissue damage in a vast number of diseases, ranging from cancer, through autoimmune conditions, to

Serum concentrations of α tocopherol, β carotene, and retinol preceding the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus

These findings support those of a previous study that low antioxidant status is a risk factor for rheumatoid arthritis and suggest a similar association for systemic lupus erythematosus.

Increased plasma lipid peroxidation in riboflavin-deficient, malaria-infected children.

It is proposed that riboflavin deficiency restricts regeneration of reduced glutathione making the parasitized erythrocytes more vulnerable to destructive lipid peroxidation and increasing plasma lipid hydroperoxides.

Putative analgesic activity of repeated oral doses of vitamin E in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Results of a prospective placebo controlled double blind trial

Preliminary evidence is provided that vitamin E may exert a small but significant analgesic activity independent of a peripheral anti-inflammatory effect, but which complements standard anti- inflammatory treatment.
