Status of Oxidative Stress and Antioxidant Levels in Smokers with Breast Cancer from Western Nepal

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.078
Synopsis: 
The blood glucose lowering potential of aqueous fruit extracts of the Jamaican plant species (Momordica charantia) was investigated in Sprague-Dawley rats. The extract showed no hypoglycaemic or antidiabetic activity. However, there was improvement in glucose tolerance of glucose-primed normoglycaemic rats during oral glucose tolerance test.

Objectives: Research indicates that oxidative stress induced by smoking plays a crucial role in breast cancer. In view of these reports, we aimed to study this relationship between smoking and oxidative stress in breast cancer patients from western region of Nepal.
