Urinary 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid excretion is associated with oxidative stress in hypertensive subjects
Not to confuse anyone with long words (just how much would that be worth in Scrabble?) but it is surprising to me just how many ways we are finding to evaluate oxidative stress. Truly this is a wonderful movement, because we are still lacking a good, overall, solid test to check for oxidative stress.
What I can see happening is a panel of several oxidative stress markers that will give a good idea of what state a patient is in. Given that I think oxidative stress/mitochondrial dysfunction is the root of all evil, any markers we can identify to evaluate this is a good thing.
