Title: Antioxidant therapy impresses in oxidative stress-induced kidney cells

Abstract: INTRODUCTION:  Renal cell cancer (RCC) is not a single entity, but consists of different types of tumors derived from various parts of the nephron (epithelium or renal tubules). It is known that cancer initiation and progression is related to the balance between oxidants and antioxidants directly. Interestingly, advanced stages of cancer such as metastasis, angiogenesis are associated with cell oxidative capacity. Familiar antioxidative substances such as carotenes and vitamin C inhibit oxidation of other molecules during carcinogenesis. They can define the distinction between cancer and normal cells, destroying cancer cells while stabilizing healthy cells.
METHODS:  apoptotic activities of kidney cells were measured with caspase Elisa kits. DNA laddering test was used to show DNA damage in H2O2 condition.
RESULTS:  For tumor mechanism, they act as pro-oxidants, producing hydrogen peroxide that attacks the cancer, whereas, in normal conditions they act as protective antioxidants.
CONCLUSIONS:  The unlike reaction of specific antioxidants should be known at different cell stages. The aim of this study was to assess the antioxidative roles of alpha lipoic acid on kidney cancers during oxidative stress induction (Tab. 1, Fig. 7, Ref. 27).

Keywords: alpha lipoic acid, apoptosis, H2O2, kidney, ROS
