The article discusses a study by Marta Borowiecka and colleagues on the oxidative stress (OS) markers in follicular fluid (FF) of women under in vitro fertilization/embryo transfer (IVF/ET). It says that the researchers used various methods such as the protein peroxidation marker analysis, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and body mass index (BMI) measurement. Results reveal that FF protein and lipid peroxidation level may negatively affect IVF outcome.

    Background: Atherosclerosis is an age-related disease. Adiponectin and C1q form a protein complex in human blood, and that serum C1q and C1q-binding adiponectin (C1q-APN) concentrations can be measured. We investigated circulating C1q and C1q-APN levels in Japanese men including elderly men....

    Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathophysiology of preeclampsia. In a case-control study of 99 women with preeclampsia and 99 controls, we assessed maternal plasma oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxidized LDL) in relation to preeclampsia risk. Logistic regression procedures...
