Among more than 750 known carotenoids, canthaxanthin (CX) has a special place as a carotenoid with proven antioxidant and other biologically-relevant functions. A substantial body of evidence indicates that CX possesses high antioxidant activity which has been shown in various in vitro model systems as well as in animal experiments in vivo. It seems likely that the highest protective effects of CX are seen under various stress conditions. This compound may be considered as an important element… Expand
Antioxidant systems in chick embryo development. Part 1. Vitamin E, carotenoids and selenium
TLDR
The data indicate that increased supplementation of the maternal diet can substantially increase concentrations of vitamin E, carotenoids and Se in developing chick tissues and significantly decrease susceptibility to lipid peroxidation being effective nutritional tools to deal with various commercial stresses in poultry production. Expand
Nutritional modulation of the antioxidant capacities in poultry: the case of selenium.
TLDR
Analysis of the current data on selenium roles in antioxidant defenses in poultry clearly showed its modulatory effect at the level of breeders, developing embryos, newly hatched chicks, and postnatal chickens, and a search for most effective dietary form of organic Se is a priority in poultry nutrition. Expand
NATURAL ANTIOXIDANTS IN HENS’ EMBRYOGENESIS AND ANTISTRESS DEFENCE IN POSTNATAL DEVELOPMENT (review)
TLDR
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and natural antioxidants of maternal diet are key important for the development of chick embryos and viability of chicks in early post-hatch period, and high content of endogenous antioxidants in the egg and embryonic tissues may be a major adaptive mechanism preventing the oxidative stress at hatching. Expand
Nutritional modulation of the antioxidant capacities in poultry: the case of vitamin E.
TLDR
Evidence related to modulation of the antioxidant capacities in poultry by vitamin E is presented and it was shown that increased vitamin E supplementation in the breeder's or cockerel's diet increased their resistance to various stresses, including high polyunsaturated fatty acids, mycotoxin, or heat stress. Expand
Impact of Se supplementation on the oxidation stability of eggs
Se supplementation in feed can be used to increase human Se intake, and this has showed significant progress in the area of healthy nutrition in recent years. It has been proven that the antioxidantExpand
Antioxidant-Prooxidant Balance in the Intestine: Applications in Chick Placement and Pig
A delicate balance between antioxidants and prooxidants in cells is an important determinant of various physiological processes and maintenance of this balance is the main aim of so called anExpand
Oxidative Stress and Marine Carotenoids: Application by Using Nanoformulations
TLDR
The role of marine carotenoids, their potential applications and different types of advanced nanoformulations preventing and treating oxidative stress related disorders are described. Expand
Antioxidant Systems in Poultry Biology: Superoxide Dismutase
Commercial poultry production is associated with various stresses responsible for decreasing productive and reproductive performance of growing chicks, breeders and commercial layers. A growing bodyExpand
Selenium in poultry breeder nutrition: An update
TLDR
The roles of Se in poultry nutrition and reproduction need new consideration in light of recent knowledge on the molecular mechanisms of Se action at the cellular and sub-cellular levels, as well as better understanding of the relationships between different antioxidants. Expand
Effect of Sodium Selenite, Selenium Yeast, and Bacterial Enriched Protein on Chicken Egg Yolk Color, Antioxidant Profiles, and Oxidative Stability
TLDR
Bacterial selenoproteins from Stenotrophomonas maltophilia was used as a dietary supplement with other Se sources in Lohman brown Classic laying hens to study the egg yolks color, egg yolk and breast antioxidant profile, oxidative stability, and storage effect for fresh and stored egg Yolk at 4 ± 2 °C for 14-days.

Antioxidant activity of dietary canthaxanthin.
TLDR
Under these conditions, dietary CX increased resistance to lipid peroxidation primarily by enhancing membrane alpha-tocopherol levels and secondarily by providing weak direct antioxidant activity. Expand
Antioxidant effects of carotenoids in vivo and in vitro: an overview.
TLDR
This chapter evaluates the available evidence for this explanation of in vivo biological activity of carotenoids and describes their role as biological antioxidants in radical-initiated processes, both in vitro and in vivo. Expand

TLDR
The many reports indicating that carotenoids may possess some anticarcinogenic properties may well be related to their ability to interact with and quench various radical species that can be generated within cells. Expand
Bioactivity and protective effects of natural carotenoids.
TLDR
There is convincing evidence that carotenoids are important components of the antioxidant network and photooxidative damage is suggested to be involved in the pathobiochemistry of several diseases affecting the skin and the eye, and carotanoids may protect light-exposed tissues. Expand

TLDR
The general conclusion is that this compound can enhance cell-mediated immune responses, particularly in the elderly, and possible reasons for the failure of three major prospective studies to demonstrate a beneficial effect of beta-carotene supplementation on lung cancer risk will be discussed.

TLDR
It is concluded that a severe lack of knowledge about the pharmacology and toxicology of carotenoids hampers adequate suggestions for human supplementation. Expand
Modulation of genotoxic and related effects by carotenoids and vitamin A in experimental models: mechanistic issues.
TLDR
Carotenoids and vitamin A appear to work via multiple mechanisms, which would support a potential protective role in cancer initiation and in the pathogenesis of other mutation-related diseases. Expand

TLDR
The experimental evidence for carotenoid inhibition of mutagenicity, malignant transformation, tumor formation, and immunoenhancement is reviewed and it is clear that the overwhelming evidence in these systems would indicate thatcarotenoids exert an important influence in modulating the actions of carcinogens. Expand
beta-Carotene: an unusual type of lipid antioxidant.
TLDR
New experiments in vitro show that beta-carotene belongs to a previously unknown class of biological antioxidants, and exhibits good radical-trapping antioxidant behavior only at partial pressures of oxygen significantly less than 150 torr, the pressure of oxygen in normal air. Expand
The protective role of carotenoids against 7-keto-cholesterol formation in solution
TLDR
The finding that carotenoids exert protective effects on spontaneous and free radical-induced cholesterol oxidation may have important beneficial effects on human health, by limiting the formation of atheroma and by inhibiting cholesterol oxidation in food processing or storage. Expand
