    Tissues in the anterior segment of the eye are particular vulnerable to oxidative stress. To minimise oxidative stress, ocular tissues utilise a range of antioxidant defence systems which include nonenzymatic and enzymatic antioxidants in combination with repair and chaperone systems. However,...

    Extrapyramidal movement disorders are major neurodegenerative disorders caused due to dopamine deficiency in the basal ganglia. It may be caused due to oxidative stress producing free radicals that destroys dopamine producing neurons. Catalepsy, Tardive dyskinesia etc are the symptoms of certain...

    Oxidative stress, involved in many diseases, is defined as an impaired balance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and antioxidant defences. Antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) play a key role in diminishing oxidative stress. Thus, the removal of ROS by exogenous...
