What is the background of the project?
Oxidative damage occurs when there is an increase in the concentration of oxidizing molecules, either endogenous or exogenous, or when they have a condition of reduced antioxidant defenses. Metabolic diseases such as DM, grades are likely to have a share of oxidative elements in its genesis, evolution or complications because they can generate oxidants states or affect the generation or recovery efficiency of antioxidant mechanisms. We know very for sure and there are numerous studies that have worked in the Faculty of Medicine on oxidative stress and damage in the body in different types of universe such as hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia with different lifestyles as what are the students of the medical school careers as well the damage that exists among workers in high stress such as brick and others.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of the project is to evaluate indicators of oxidative stress of 20 patients and its association with glycemic control in type 2 diabetic patients attending the program at UMF DIABETIMSS No. 44 IMSS in the City of Durango.
What techniques and methods are used?
Different techniques are performed to measure oxidative stress such as protein damage by carbonylation lipoperoxidation determination of antioxidant capacity, display of the damage in morphology of erythrocytes among others through blood sampling.
What is the role of the student?
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- No specific outcome is expected
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
No specific requirements.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
