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?

Effective Supplement of Vitamin C Reduces Oxidative Stress

Can you eat enough fruit to be an effective antioxidant?

Can Vitamin C reduce Oxidative Stress?  Vitamin C has antioxidant properties, which means that it reacts with reactive oxygen species (ROS) to neutralize it.  There are reports of Vitamin C being an ineffective antioxidant supplement.  However, a mismatch of the supplement format compared to the source of Oxidative Stress may be the cause.  Supplements come in three main formats, which provide the release of the compounds immediate, time, or sustained release.

Immediate Release

The immediate release is usually a tablet format or chewable.  This format provides a near instantaneous increase in the concentration of the compound in the blood.  This assumes implied losses due to stomach digestion and absorption prior to entry into the blood stream.

Time-Release

With time-release, the format prevents rapid capsule digestion in the stomach with release in the small intestine.  Time-release is not immediate, but it does avoid losses due to stomach digestion.  Both immediate and time-release formats provide a short-term spike in compound concentration in the bloodstream.

Sustained-Release

With sustained-release, the capsule releases the compounds over several hours, which will provide a steady, low concentration of the compound(s) in the blood stream. Which supplement format is the best for antioxidant effectiveness?

Best Antioxidant Supplements For Your Pet

Which antioxidant supplements are the best for your pets?

If Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS impacts your pet’s health, then an antioxidant supplement may help reduce BLOS and improve your pet’s health.  BLOS has been suggested as a cause of Obesity and Diabetes, since it can inhibit glucose transport and fat metabolism.  There is a growing problem of obesity and diabetes in our pets.  Are we feeding our pets too much or is it something in the food causing BLOS?  Here is s an in-depth guide to the problem of obesity in dogs.  Beyond pet food, we may be able help our pets by providing an effective antioxidant supplement.  Could antioxidant supplements consisting of effective antioxidants and designed for time-release help your pet?  We reviewed the scientific research and provided a short list of the Best Antioxidant Supplements for your Pet.

Oxidative Stress Prevention Tips Improve Health

Can Lifestyle Choices Reduce Oxidative Stress?

Oxidative Stress is the major healthcare problem plaguing the United States, Europe, and other countries that adopted the Western Diet.  The major source of Oxidative Stress is from the blood, which presents major problems for management or prevention to improve health.  First, Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS cannot be measured due to the lack of a proper method.  Second, BLOS is continuous (24/7), while General Oxidative Stress is temporary.  High, variable levels of Oxidative Stress depletes your body’s own antioxidants, whether from diet or the body.  Poor fitness in adult Americans also contributes to poor BLOS management due to minimal endogenous antioxidant production.  Endogenous means that your own body makes it.  Oxidative Stress prevention could be the key to improving health.

Blood Oxidative Stress Tests To Guide Lifestyle Choices

Review of Current and Future Tests for Measuring Oxidative Stress

Here is a list of the Top Oxidative Stress Tests available for evaluating your lifestyle choices.  These tests measure the level of different biomolecules that provide evidence of Oxidative Stress.  Oxidative Stress is thought to the the primary cause of multiple health problems.  Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS is thought to be the main source of Oxidative Stress in humans.  If we have any hope in managing BLOS, then we need a way to measure its level.

What is Oxidative Stress? It’s from the blood!

Blood Oxidative Stress is an Expensive Health Care Problem

What is Oxidative Stress?  Let’s review the two sources of Oxidative Stress and determine which source is more important.  General Oxidative Stress is thought to be the only source of Oxidative Stress.  However, Blood can also generate Oxidative Stress, which is also known as BLOS.  This post provides information about why BLOS is more important compared to General Oxidative Stress.  EBooks (and Books) and BLOS Health Hack Kits may help you fight BLOS for better health.

Second source of Oxidative Stress may be important to your health
Blood Oxidative Stress may be the primary source of Oxidative Stress causing multiple health problems.

General Oxidative Stress

The mechanistic model of General Oxidative Stress starts with an elevated rate of metabolism that results in mitochondrial dysfunction.  In turn, this leads to an increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS).   Medical researchers observe General Oxidative Stress in tissue cultures, but it is difficult to observe in the human body.  How many biopsies are needed to identify the tissues sources of General Oxidative Stress?  Instead, medical researchers rely on diagnostic methods that evaluate ROS or oxidation end products in blood, urine, or breath.

General Oxidative Stress and ROS

ROS includes O2 (superoxide radical), OH (hydroxyl radical) and H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide).  Most folks are familiar with the many uses of hydrogen peroxide for cleaning, disinfecting, and more.  For your health, excessive production of ROS including hydrogen peroxide can be dangerous.  The ROS molecules diffuse into the bloodstream and react with biomolecules throughout the body.  The end products of these ROS reactions can be measured in blood, urine, and breath.  The general consensus on the primary cause of General Oxidative Stress is the high caloric content of the Western Diet.

Excessive alcohol consumption is a special case of General Oxidative Stress.  It causes short periods of ROS generation in the liver and other organs.  Short periods of ROS generation is a primary characteristic of General Oxidative Stress.  It is due to the reliance on excessive substrate availability necessary for the elevated rate of metabolism.  A second source of Oxidative Stress is from blood cells, which received little attention from medical researchers or the general public.

Blood Oxidative Stress

White blood cells and platelets can generate high rates of ROS, which is alarming when the patient does not have an infection.  In 2008, Walter Paulus’ research group reported on ROS+ blood cells in both healthy (non-hospitalized) and congestive heart failure (CHF) patients.  Here is the link for the Abstract of the research article describing Blood Oxidative Stress or BLOS: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18957960  This article provides interesting BLOS data and I will focus on the most important findings, which escaped the attention of the researchers.  The research community missed it, but this is understandable when you consider that there are over 200,000 research articles about Oxidative Stress.  The Paulus’ paper is the proverbial “needle in the haystack” for Oxidative Stress.
