Abstract

Oxidative stress is associated with a range of pathological and degenerative conditions as well as physiological processes such as exercise. I have developed a novel highly sensitive assay that measures the levels of oxidised albumin as a biomarker of oxidative stress. Due to its high sensitivity that exceeds that of other biomarkers, this assay has allowed me to discover that both endurance and resistance exercise result in a biphasic pattern of change in oxidative stress post-exercise. This discovery warrants the use of this assay to re-examine more thoroughly a range of clinical and physiological conditions associated with oxidative stress.
