The imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants causes extremely formation of reactive oxygen species and oxidative damage.
Being a metabolic factory of the body, liver is highly vulnerable to oxidative stress induced damage6.
Animals, including humans, face a similar risk when they use the oxygen they breathe to convert food into energy: imperfectly contained combustion leads to "oxidative stress" in the cell.
Conclusion: Regular probiotic yoghurt consumption significantly modulated MMP2, MMP9 and some inflammatory factors, and thus guarded against exhaustive exercise-inducing oxidative injury in young healthy females.

The goal of the study was to determine what happens to telomeres when they are damaged by oxidative stress.
Aiming to improve the standards and the oxidative stability of biodiesel, studies using blends of oil biodiesels and waste frying oils have been carried out to optimize the mixture of fatty acids of these raw materials (Giakoumis, 2013; Ramos, Fernandez, Casas, Rodriguez, & Perez, 2009).

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of plasmatic sRAGE, as new oxidative stress and infection marker, correlating it to the level of OS and antioxidant defenses, in postoperative prosthetic joint infection (PJI), in order to explore the possible application of this new biomarker in the early diagnosis of PJI.
The 3 review articles published in this issue discussed how oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation products are involved in various pathological conditions.
There are still several gaps in our understanding of the basis of oxidative damage in neurodegenerative disorders; however, it is increasingly accepted that many diseases share common pathways of oxidative stress-related damage, and it's likely that significant progress will be made in the design and implementation of effective therapeutic strategies in the next few years, said Dr.
