Oxidative stress is an unavoidable event during cardiac surgery. Isoprostanes have been demonstrated to be a reliable biomarker for the evaluation of oxidative stress in vivo.The aims of this study are(1)to develop an accurate liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry methods for the detection of urinary isoprostane isomers in samples collected from healthy volunteers(for method quality control) and patients receiving a cardiac surgery (2)to investigate the change of isoprostanes after cardiopulmonary bypass(CPB) (3)to investigate the effect of different anesthetics on isoprostanes.
Enhanced production of oxygen free radicals can lead to the generation of oxidative stress, which is harmful to human tissue and organs. Reactive oxygen species are released abruptly during some surgical procedures, and they are the major causes of ischemia-reperfusion injuries.Isoprostanes have been demonstrated to be a reliable biomarker for the evaluation of oxidative stress in vivo. Therefore, accurately monitoring and avoiding the occurrence of oxidative stress during surgery is an important clinical issue.
Isoprostanes are a series of prostaglandin-like compounds produced by non-enzymatic peroxidation of arachidonic acid.The aims of this study are(1)to develop an accurate liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry methods for the detection of urinary isoprostane isomers in samples collected from patients receiving a cardiac surgery (2)to investigate the change of isoprostanes after cardiopulmonary bypass (3)to investigate the effect of different anesthetics on isoprostanes during surgery.

The purpose of the study is to examine whether Klacid® (Clarithromycin) will induce oxidative stress (stress from oxygen) in healthy subjects. This is done by measuring the content of a p...
The role of oxidative stress in disease pathology is increasingly recognized. At present, the development of biomarkers of this state is in its infancy and the availability of clinically v...
High inspiratory oxygen fractions are known to induce oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation. The degrading products of oxidative stress induced lipid peroxidation are in part volatile an...
The purpose of this study is investigate to the effect(s) of chronic occupational exposure to N20 and volatile anesthetics on the extent of oxidative stress (DNA damage and the generation ...
Given preliminary data in animal (proprietary data) have shown that XXS (a mixture of natural polyphenolic extracts of edible plants) has a significant and favourable effect on oxidative s...
Oxidative stress has been implicated in a number of neurodegenerative diseases spanning various fields of research. Reactive oxygen species can be beneficial or harmful, depending on their concentrati...
Oxidative stress has been proposed to be one of the main causes of aging and has been implicated in the pathogenesis of many diseases. Sensitivity to oxidative stress can be measured by quantifying su...
Oxidative stress is a critical component of nervous system secondary injury. Oxidative stress produces toxic chemical byproducts including reactive aldehydes that traverse intact membranes and attack ...
The oxidative stress-induced osteoblast apoptosis plays an important role in the pathological process of osteoporosis, but the roles of autophagy in oxidative stress and apoptosis of osteoblasts remai...
p53 is a tumor suppressor protein involved in regulating a wide array of signaling pathways. The role of p53 in the cell is determined by the type of imposed oxidative stress, its intensity and durati...
A disturbance in the prooxidant-antioxidant balance in favor of the former, leading to potential damage. Indicators of oxidative stress include damaged DNA bases, protein oxidation products, and lipid peroxidation products (Sies, Oxidative Stress, 1991, pxv-xvi).
The appearance of carbonyl groups (such as aldehyde or ketone groups) in PROTEINS as the result of several oxidative modification reactions. It is a standard marker for OXIDATIVE STRESS. Carbonylated proteins tend to be more hydrophobic and resistant to proteolysis.
A direct-acting oxidative stress-inducing agent used to examine the effects of oxidant stress on Ca(2+)-dependent signal transduction in vascular endothelial cells. It is also used as a catalyst in polymerization reactions and to introduce peroxy groups into organic molecules.
A protein deglycase that repairs methylglyoxal- and glyoxal-glycated amino acids and proteins, releasing repaired proteins and lactate or glycolate. It deglycates CYSTEINE, ARGININE and LYSINE residues to reactivate proteins by reversing glycation and prevent the formation of ADVANCED GLYCATION END PRODUCTS. It protects cells against OXIDATIVE STRESS and CELL DEATH by functioning as an oxidative stress sensor and redox-sensitive MOLECULAR CHAPERONE and PROTEASE. Mutations in the PARK7 gene are associated with autosomal-recessive, early-onset PARKINSON DISEASE.
An activating transcription factor that plays a key role in cellular responses to GENOTOXIC STRESS and OXIDATIVE STRESS.
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Erectile Dysfunction Urology Urology is the branch of medicine concerned with the urinary tract and diseases that affect it. Examples include urethritis, urethrostenosis and incontinence. Urology is a su...
