Vascular Endothelial Dysfunction Caused by Oxidative Stress is a Predictor Factor for Complications of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.383
Synopsis: 
We aimed to determine oxidative imbalance and vascular endothelial dysfunction as suspects for complications of OSAS. We found both oxidative stress and vascular endothelial dysfunction lead to early development of atherosclerosis which may cause the life-threatening complications of OSAS.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by repetitive episodes of upper airway obstruction that occur during sleep which leads to cardiovascular, neurovascular and metabolic diseases. The mechanisms of complications in these patients are unclear. In this report, we aimed to determine the cause of oxidative imbalance in patients with OSAS and to evaluate the vascular endothelial dysfunction as a suspect for complications of the disease.

Ameliorative Effect of Zinc Oxide and Silver Nanoparticles on Antioxidant System in the Brain of Diabetic Rats

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.296
Synopsis: 
The effect of zinc oxide and silver nanoparticles on the brain of diabetic rats was investigated. It was concluded that Zinc oxide and silver nanoparticles protect the brain's tissue against the bad effects of free radicals by improving the brain antioxidant power.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The present study tests the ability of both zinc oxide (ZnONPs) and silver (SNPs) nanoparticles to ameliorate the oxidative stress resulted from diabetes in diabetic rats was tested in the present study.

Determination of Chemical Antioxidants and Phenolic Compounds in the Brazilian Mushroom Agaricus sylvaticus

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2011.216
Pages: 
142–6
Synopsis: 
Agaricus sylvaticus mushroom has been widely studied because of its high nutritional value and medicinal properties. The objective of this study was to evaluate the antioxidant potential of both alcoholic and aqueous extracts of Agaricus sylvaticus, and quantify their total polyphenol content. There is great antioxidant potential of aqueous, alcoholic and ethereal extracts of the Agaricus sylvaticus mushroom.

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.

Micronutrients and Their Role in Oral Cancer: A Review

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.175
Pages: 
383-88
Synopsis: 
The incidence of oral cancer increases with the increased association with carcinogens. Antioxidants are hypothesised to be chemopreventive agents for cancers. Micronutrients and antioxidants are required for the production of enzymes that help prevent DNA damage caused by free radicals.
