Pathophisology of oxidative stress and antioxidants

Research group of Dr. Fancisco Javier Romero in Valencia, Spain.

Oxidative stress is involved in a lot of pathological processes. Its better knowledge leads to better understanding of this mechanism, and consequently to the development of therapeutic tools appropriate to each case. Diseases affecting the nervous system, especially those that involve neurodegeneration, are of particular interest because natural or synthetic antioxidants represents an arsenal of neuroprotective therapies with a great importance.

Methodology

  • Cell culture,
  • antioxidants biochemical analysis,
  • imunohistochemistry,
  • hplc,
  • western blot,
  • electroretinogram online PCR.
