Description
Oxidative stress has emerged as an important pathogenic factor in the development of long-term complications, such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, nephropathy, and cancer. Taking many antioxidants from natural food may be effective to prevent us from those diseases. We have attempted to evaluate the effect of improvement by dietary antioxidants on the endothelial dysfunction induced by hyperglycemia. Fluorescence indicators for reactive oxygen species and nitric oxide were employed to the evaluation. The combination of those fluorescence indicators could be powerful tool to evaluate the effect of anti-stress nutrients on both oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction.
