Publisher and Date:(Elsevier Science Bv, 2003)Background: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) refers to the occurrence of episodes of complete or partial pharyngeal obstruction with oxyhemoglobin desaturation during sleep. These hypoxia/reoxygenation episodes may cause generation of reactive oxygen species. Reactive oxygen species are toxic to biomembranes and may lead to the peroxidation of lipids. We tested the hypothesis that obstructive sleep apnea is linked to increased oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation. In order to identify target ...
Status of malondialdehyde, catalase and superoxide dismutase levels/activities in schoolchildren with iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anemia of Kashere and its environs in Gombe State, Nigeria Authors:
Publisher and Date:(Elsevier, 2019)Background: Iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) or iron deficiency (ID) is by far the most common form of disorder affecting the cognitive development, physical growth and school performance of children in developing countries including Nigeria. Objectives: In the present study, we aimed to examine whether IDA or ID, or both are associated with oxidative stress or otherwise by assessing the perturbations in oxidative stress markers including malondialdehyde (MDA), catalase (CAT) and superoxide dismutase ...
