Oxidative Stress Blood Test Good for Patients and Pharma

How does Oxidative Stress Impact Clinical Trials?

The Right To Try Bill is a new Law, which offers hope for terminally ill patients interested in trying experimental drugs that passed Phase 1 safety standards from the FDA.  While encouraging, the grim reality of experimental drugs is that a large majority fail in Phase 2/3 of Clinical Trials.  This is despite Pre-Clinical experiments providing evidence that these experimental drugs work in animal models.  Could variable levels of Oxidative Stress in humans cause some of this failure?  If true, then there may be a simple way to improve the odds of an experimental drug working for Right To Try patients.  This approach should also interest Big Pharma.  An Oxidative Stress Test provides feedback on lifestyle choices for lowering Oxidative Stress.  This approach should be used prior to using experimental drugs for better results.

Elevated Blood Oxidative Stress May Impact Clinical Trials

The primary source of Oxidative Stress in adult Americans is from blood cells, which we call Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS.  Although about 2/3 of adult Americans are thought to suffer from elevated levels of BLOS, medical researchers do NOT control it during Clinical Trials.  Control in this context means minimizing BLOS during the clinical trial.  But Big Pharma has been doing this for decades and this is the right approach for evaluating experimental drugs, right?

Learn how to Enhance Probiotics for Women and Men by Reducing Oxidative Stress

Probiotics are found in supplements and food items with the promise of a health benefit.  However, the FDA has yet to approve any probiotic for the treatment of any human disease.  While animal studies provide evidence that probiotics may be an effective treatment for health problems, human studies always come up short.  There may be a simple explanation for this observation: Oxidative Stress.  Learn how to enhance probiotics for women and men by reducing and managing Oxidative Stress.
