This contribution might non-specifically hamper the stabilisation of tumour suppressor proteins, for example, which can further contribute to oncogenesis. Therefore, we are convinced that Watson’s insights can be elaborated more explicitly into cancer by hypothesising that the therapeutic effect of physical activity in cancer relies on the restoration of the low ROS levels caused by cancerous… Expand
Energy Metabolism in IDH1 Wild-Type and IDH1-Mutated Glioblastoma Stem Cells: A Novel Target for Therapy?
The present review describes ATP production in primary brain tumors, glioblastoma, in relation to ROS production and argues that systemic therapeutic inhibition of OXPHOS is not an option because the anti-cancer effects of ROS production in healthy cells is inhibited as well. Expand
GSH levels affect weight loss in individuals with metabolic syndrome and obesity following dietary therapy
It was observed that patients with MetS and obesity with high GSH values responded better to the dietary therapy, exhibiting more significant changes in weight and BF%, which underscores the importance of identifying redox status markers, particularly GSH, in obese patients with metS. Expand
Radioprotection of IDH1-Mutated Cancer Cells by the IDH1-Mutant Inhibitor AGI-5198.
Evidence that small-molecule inhibitors of IDH1(R132H) that are being developed for cancer therapy may pose risks with coadministration of radiotherapy is presented and altered oxidative stress responses are argued to be a plausible mechanism to understand the radiosensitivity of IDh1-mutated cancer cells.

The fine art of vascular wall maintenance. Carriership of XPC, TP53 and APOE polymorphisms may be a risk factor for cerebral vascular accidents in the Bulgarian population
Adult Bulgarian patients with a history of cerebral vascular accidents and age-matched healthy controls were analyzed for 11 markers, including 7 DNA polymorphisms in genes coding for proteins of DNA repair and maintenance of genomic integrity, 3 hypercoagulability markers and 1 marker for susceptibility for cerebral amyloidosis.

Targeting Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor-Resistant Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer by Inducing Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Degradation via Methionine 790 Oxidation
Targeting EGFR by elevating ROS and redox imbalance is a potential new strategy to develop a new EGFR inhibitor for TKI-resistant patients with a wide therapeutic window between EGFRT790M and EGFRWT. Expand
How Butterfly Effect or Deterministic Chaos Theory in Theoretical Physics Explains the Main Cause of Cancer
In animal cells, mitochondria are unique organelles in that they contain a genome of their own. There are small circular chromosomes in each mitochondrion that have genes for some of theExpand
Abstract. This study examined the effects of redox status markers on metabolic syndrome (MetS) and obesity before and after dietary intervention and exercise for weight loss. A total of 103 adults suffering from MetS and obesity

Type 2 diabetes as a redox disease
It is shown that combinations of short-term metformin treatment with single acute bouts of exercise do not enhance insulin sensitivity or attenuate much of the oxidative damage caused by exercise. Expand
Metabolic reprogramming: a cancer hallmark even warburg did not anticipate.
It is argued that altered metabolism has attained the status of a core hallmark of cancer. Expand
Reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate and the higher incidence of pollution-induced liver cancer in female flounder.
Evidence is presented in this review that NADPH plays a significant role in this sex-related response to xenobiotics in liver of flounder and sex differences in NADPH metabolism are a major cause of the higher incidence of liver cancer in female flounders in polluted environments. Expand
Health benefits of physical activity: the evidence
It is revealed that the current Health Canada physical activity guidelines are sufficient to elicit health benefits, especially in previously sedentary people, and that a further increase in physical activity and fitness will lead to additional improvements in health status. Expand
Influence of pre- and postdiagnosis physical activity on mortality in breast cancer survivors: the health, eating, activity, and lifestyle study.
Moderate-intensity physical activity after a diagnosis of breast cancer may improve prognosis and reduce the risk of death among women with breast cancer. Expand
