OXIDATIVE STRESS AND EPILEPSY: A REVIEW
Ankur Rohilla*, Sanjeev Kalra, Gurfateh Singh and Jainendra Jain
Epilepsy is a serious neurological disorder which involves the abnormal discharges of electrical activity in the brain cells, giving rise to abnormal behaviours such as involuntary muscle movements, unusual perceptions or a disturbed level of consciousness. Epilepsy has been considered as a relatively common condition that can affect anyone at any age. The oxidative stress resulting from excessive free-radical generation is likely implicated in the initiation, development and progression of epilepsy. The present review article discusses about the probable role of oxidative stress in epilepsy. Moreover, strategies to prevent the development and progression of epilepsy have been conferred in the review.
Keywords: Epilepsy, Oxidative Stress.
