High glucose concentrations influence the functional and structural development of the peritoneal membrane. We previously reported that the oral administration of astaxanthin AST suppressed peritoneal fibrosis PF as well as inhibited oxidative stress, inflammation, and epithelial—mesenchymal transition EMT of peritoneal mesothelial cells PMCs in a chlorhexidine-induced PF rat model. This suggests that oxidative stress induction of EMT is a key event during peritoneal damage. The present study evaluated the therapeutic effect of AST in suppressing EMT, in response to glucose-induced oxidative stress. AST may be an efficacious treatment for PF.

Recently, the causative genes of Parkinson's disease have been identified, and a molecular biological approach has become possible Table 1. Mutations in these genes cause degeneration of the dopaminergic nerves in the substantia nigra of the midbrain, leading to Parkinson's disease, but it is not clear how mutations in each gene product contribute to neurodegeneration or whether there is a common neurodegenerative mechanism. Figure 1.
