Urinary Advanced Oxidation Protein Product: A Potential Oxidative Damage Marker for Cancer

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.324
Pages: 
505-10
Synopsis: 
The urinary oxidative protein damage in cancer is significantly higher than diabetes mellitus (with and without hypertension) and may potentially serve as a non-invasive oxidative biomarker for cancer.

The Radioprotective Effects of Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester and Thymoquinone on Oxidative and Nitrosative Stress in Liver Tissue of Rats Exposed to Total Head Irradiation

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.176
Pages: 
1–7
Synopsis: 
This study investigates the effects of the addition of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) and thymoquinone on oxidative and nitrosative stress in the liver tissue of irradiated rats. Thymoquinone and CAPE decrease oxidative and nitrosative stress markers and have antioxidant effects, which also increase antioxidant capacity in the liver tissue of irradiated rats.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of addition of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) and thymoquinone (TQ)on oxidative and nitrosative stress in the liver tissue of (IR) irradiated rats.

Methods: Forty Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into five groups to test the radioprotective effectiveness of TQand CAPE administered by intraperitoneal injection. Appropriate control groups were also studied.

The Protective Effect of Epigallocatechin-3-gallate on Paraquat-induced Haemolysis

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.067
Pages: 
186–8
Synopsis: 
The effect of epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) was investigated on paraquat-induced haemolysis of erythrocyte membrane. The results showed that EGCG significantly reduced the haemolysis of erythrocytes exposed to paraquat, which suggests that it may have a protective effect.
