Introduction

The overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) has been implicated in the development of various chronic and degenerative diseases such as cancer, respiratory, neurodegenerative, and digestive diseases. However, the methodology to detect the oxidative stress status at a clinical level is difficult to find in the literature. There are some useful methods to investigate the oxidative profile, but they are not applicable to the clinical diagnosis. Despite the high morbidity of diseases in which oxidative stress is involved (cancer, diabetes, neurological, cardiovascular, etc.)
