New Method Released to Determine In vivo Antioxidant StatusA nonfluorescent probe has been used which, after being oxidized by reactive oxygen species present in serum samples, was transformed into a form that emitted fluorescence. By quantifying the specific fluorescence, the scientists were able to measure the reactive oxygen species concentration which does not discriminate between the various free radicals found in the human body. Thus this assay can be very useful in quantifying total reactive oxygen species in vivo.
