Oxidative stress plays a role in multiple sclerosis.

Oxidative stress (OS) as a biomarker for multiple sclerosis (MS) and disease progression is the subject of studies being conducted around the world.

Known for years as an instigator of inflammation, OS is also considered to be neurodegenerative. Recent observations confirm the fact that OS is also an important factor associated with demyelination in MS.

OS is caused by an imbalance in free radicals that damage the nucleic acids, proteins, and lipids in the body. This is what creates inflammation. The byproduct of this action creates markers for OS.
