Oxidative Stress and Antioxidants: Their Role in Human Disease

Oxidative rigidity is a comparatively new idea that has been commonly implicated in biomedical sciences over the past two decades. It considerably participates within the pathophysiology of hugely general ailments similar to diabetes, high blood pressure, preeclampsia, atherosclerosis, acute renal failure, Alzheimer and Parkinson illnesses, between others.

Conversely, this virus was rarely found in the adult population during the same period. Further studies are needed to establish whether this recently described parvovirus is pathogenic by using well-matched control groups and sequential samples to detect viral persistence.

After 72 days at 44°C, reduction in viral RNA production by the KEN-3829 strain was 6,500-fold, compared with the NY99 strain reduction of 17-fold. This finding suggested that efficient replication at high temperatures, as occurs in American crows, could be an important virulence factor that determines the pathogenic phenotype of the NY99 strain (10). To further investigate the molecular determinants of virulence of lineage 2 WNV strains, we sequenced the genomes of highly and less neuroinvasive lineage 2 strains that were isolated from patients in South Africa and that had previously been characterized with respect to gene expression and pathogenicity (4).
