    The complication of asthma during pregnancy is associated with a number of poor outcomes for the mother and fetus. This may be partially driven by increased oxidative stress induced by the combination of asthma and pregnancy. Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways associated...

    Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of asthma. Recently several investigators have studied the effects of a variety of antioxidants on asthma. Antioxidants, including L-2- oxothiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid, reduce airway inflammation and hyper-responsiveness of asthma...
