The male factor is considered a major contributory factor to infertility. Apart from the conventional causes for male infertility such as varicocoele, cryptorchidism, infections, obstructive lesions, cystic fibrosis, trauma, and tumours, a new and important cause has been identified: oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is a result of the imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and […]

Association of Changes in Oxidative and Proinflammatory States with Changes in Vascular Function After a Lifestyle Modification Trial Among Obese Children (Lipids, Lipoproteins, And Cardiovascular Risk Factors)

Association of Changes in Oxidative and Proinflammatory States with Changes in Vascular Function After a Lifestyle Modification Trial Among Obese Children (Lipids, Lipoproteins, And Cardiovascular Risk Factors)

Of special concern are the cardiometabolic consequences of obesity, especially hypertension, dyslipidemia, and impaired glucose metabolism, that are already present in young children of different ethnicities (2, 3).
