Another approach for intrinsic self-healing is by means of the formation of covalent bonds that allow chain exchange reactions such as the dynamic reversible formation of acylhydrazones [11], trithiocarbonates reshuffling [12], the reaction exchange of siloxane segments [13, 14], and the metathesis reaction of disulfide bonds [15-17].
The vascular OxS observed in MetS leads to a change in plasma redox state, inciting a prooxidant environment due to the imbalance of two central thiol/disulfide couples, glutathione/glutathione disulfide (GSH/GSSG), and cysteine/cystine (Cys/CySS) [25, 27].
