REVIEW ON IN-VITRO ANTIOXIDANT SCREENING ASSAYS

Journal Title: Journal of Drug Discovery and Therapeutics - Year 2013, Vol 1, Issue 9

Abstract

Oxygen, an element indispensable for life, can under certain circumstances, adversely affect the human body. The oxygen consumption inherent in cell growth leads to the generation of a series of reactive oxygen species (ROS). The role and beneficial effects of antioxidants against various disorders and diseases induced by oxidative stress have therefore received much attention. The free radical scavenging antioxidants are one of the important classes of antioxidants and the assessment of their capacity has been the subject of extensive studies and argument. This stimuli article reviews the different in-vitro methods for the estimation of the antioxidant capacity. All the models are described along with the different standards that can be used for the estimation.
