2,3,7,8-Tetra Chlorodibenzo-P-Dioxin (TCDD) is a highly persistent trace environmental contaminant known. TCDD and environmental chemicals may induce oxidative stress leading to generation of free radicals and alternation in antioxidants or oxygen free scavenging enzymes. Medicinal plants and their active principle have received great attention as potential antiperoxidative agents, therefore this study aimed to investigate the effect of turmeric powder (Cucrcuma longa L.) on oxidative stress…

BIOCHEMICAL AND HISTOLOGICAL CHANGES IN THE LIVER OF DIOXIN ( TCDD )-INTOXICATED RABBITS [ 1 ]

TLDR
Dioxin caused exaggerated oxidative stress response in dioxin-treated rabbits as indicated by significant changes in total antioxidant capacity, malondialdehyde (MDA), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), and reduced glutathione (GSH) levels, and the dioxIn-mediated oxidative stress appears to cause hepatic histological changes.

Antioxidative effects of curcumin, β-myrcene and 1,8-cineole against 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin-induced oxidative stress in rats liver

TLDR
In conclusion, curcumin, myrcene and cineole showed antioxidant activity and eliminated TCDD-induced oxidative stress in rats in a time-dependent manner.

Biochemical and toxic effects of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin in immature male and female chickens.

Oxidative stress in female B6C3F1 mice following acute and subchronic exposure to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD).

TLDR
Very low doses of TCDD that result in tissue concentrations similar to the background levels found in the human population produced an effect on an oxidative stress endogenous defense system, suggesting that higher tissue T CDCDD concentrations are required to elicit oxidative stress following acute dosing than with subchronic T CDD exposure.

TLDR
Curcumin and resveratrol showed a significant hepatoprotective activity by lowering the levels of serum marker enzymes, lipid peroxidation and elevating the Levels of GSH, SOD, CAT and GSH-Px, however, resver atrol failed to protect from the aflatoxin B1-induced liver injury.

Stimulation of NADPH-dependent reactive oxygen species formation and DNA damage by 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin in rat peritoneal lavage cells

TLDR
The results clearly indicate that the oral administration of TCDD activates peritoneal lavage cells in rats, and that the activation precedes the formation of DNA single strand breaks.
