Invited for this month's cover is Prof. Arie Gruzman (Bar-Ilan University) and collaborators who have developed an Nrf2 enhancer. This compound activated the Nrf2 transduction pathway and because of this the translation of dozens of antioxidant cytoprotective proteins in a dose- and time-dependent manner and protected PC-12 cells against oxidative stress. Considering the imbalance between production and elimination of oxidative species involved in the pathophysiology of many human diseases, this compound is a promising starting point for the development of novel therapeutics for the treatment of oxidative-stress-related diseases.
