From: Per os administered refined olive oil and marine PUFA-rich oils reach the cornea: possible role on oxidative stress through caveolin-1 modulation

Figure 1

Effects of oils on reactive oxygen species production by human corneal cells (H2DCF-DA test). The HCE-T cells were preincubated with oils or culture medium during 15 minutes followed by a 24-hour recovery time and then incubated with tBHP 50 μM or PBS during 1 hour. tBHP induced an overproduction of ROS partially or totally inhibited by the tested oils. *** p < 0.001, ** p < 0.01, $p < 0.001.
