Oxidative Stress is a condition in which antioxidant levels are lower than normal. Antioxidant levels are usually measured in blood plasma.
New project clarifies molecular processes involved in hidden HIV reservoir

New project clarifies molecular processes involved in hidden HIV reservoir

In spite of ever more effective therapies, HIV keeps managing to survive in the body. A comprehensive project conducted by the Austrian Science Fund FWF has clarified the molecular processes which contribute to this effect. [More]
Research findings point to potential new targeted therapy for SMA

Research findings point to potential new targeted therapy for SMA

For the first time, scientists found that in spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), the affected nerve cells that control muscle movement, or motor neurons, have defects in their mitochondria, which generate energy used by the cell. [More]
AUDs and smoking may disproportionately increase upper airways' oxidative stress

AUDs and smoking may disproportionately increase upper airways' oxidative stress

Cells in the lung are constantly exposed to oxygen and intermittently exposed to other environmental factors, resulting in a susceptibility to oxidative injury. Both alcohol use disorders (AUDs) and cigarette smoking heighten pulmonary oxidative stress, likely due to antioxidant depletion. [More]

Stealth insulin-producing pig cells may offer solution for treating Type 1 diabetes in humans

Stealth insulin-producing pig cells may offer solution for treating Type 1 diabetes in humans

University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers are exploring ways to wrap pig tissue with a protective coating to ultimately fight diabetes in humans. The nano-thin bilayers of protective material are meant to deter or prevent immune rejection. [More]

At some point in their lives, 15 percent of people with diabetes will develop a painful and hard-to-treat foot ulcer. [More]
Obstructive sleep apnea and hypoxia linked to progression of NAFLD in obese adolescents

Obstructive sleep apnea and hypoxia linked to progression of NAFLD in obese adolescents

Researchers from the University of Colorado School of Medicine have published a new study showing that sleep apnea worsens non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in obese adolescents. [More]
Scientist receives $1.7 million grant to study how early life toxic exposures predispose to diabetes

Scientist receives $1.7 million grant to study how early life toxic exposures predispose to diabetes

Some studies indicate that early life exposure to pollutants such as PCBs and phthalates can predispose people to disease. Now environmental scientist Alicia Timme-Laragy at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has received a five-year, $1.7 million grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences for a multi-level study of early life exposure to environmental contaminants and aberrant pancreas development, which may predispose one to diabetes.

Novel therapeutic strategy could target multiple aspects of Alzheimer's disease

Novel therapeutic strategy could target multiple aspects of Alzheimer's disease

Therapeutic strategies targeting Alzheimer's disease (AD)-related molecule β-amyloid (Aβ), Tau protein and BACE enzyme have been recently explored. However the therapeutic efficacy for a single target is not ideal. [More]
Sleep-disordered breathing promotes progression of pediatric NAFLD to NASH

Sleep-disordered breathing promotes progression of pediatric NAFLD to NASH

Studies have shown that obstructive sleep apnea and low nighttime oxygen, which result in oxidative stress, are associated with the progression of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in adults. [More]
UAdeC scientists develop jelly-based shell granada to help lower blood sugar levels

UAdeC scientists develop jelly-based shell granada to help lower blood sugar levels

The development reduces the excess blood glucose and cheap to produce and easy. To innovate in natural treatments easy access to the Mexican population to combat diabetes, scientists from the Autonomous University of Coahuila developed a jelly-based shell Granada that meets as a functional food to lower blood sugar levels, it say, excess blood sugar.

Researchers discover pathway linking oxidative stress and cysteine in Huntington's disease

Researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine report they have identified a biochemical pathway linking oxidative stress and the amino acid cysteine in Huntington's disease. [More]
Scientists clarify mechanism of defective immune defense in G6PD patients

Scientists clarify mechanism of defective immune defense in G6PD patients

Favism is a common hereditary disease, affecting around 400 million people worldwide. It is caused by a lack of the enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD). [More]
Scientific review cautions against unnecessary use of antioxidant supplements

Scientific review cautions against unnecessary use of antioxidant supplements

The lay press and thousands of nutritional products warn of oxygen radicals or oxidative stress and suggest taking so-called antioxidants to prevent or cure disease. [More]
Leukemia drug increases brain dopamine, lowers toxic proteins linked to Parkinson's or dementia

Leukemia drug increases brain dopamine, lowers toxic proteins linked to Parkinson's or dementia

A small phase I study provides molecular evidence that an FDA-approved drug for leukemia significantly increased brain dopamine and reduced toxic proteins linked to disease progression in patients with Parkinson's disease or dementia with Lewy bodies. [More]
