“Introduction The ability of the food and pharmacological find more substances to interactions with free radicals is their important property (Pawłowska-Góral
et al., 2013; Rzepecka-Stojko et al., 2012). The results of therapy depend on quenching of free radicals in living organism. Free radicals are responsible for a lot of negative effects in organism, and their inactivation is needed. Free radicals have unpaired electrons, which cause major biochemical reactions and destroy the structures in cells. Free radicals are dangerous during the diabetes, polyneuropathy, arteriosclerosis, and cancer (Eaton et al., 1998; Pryor, 1976; Bartosz, 2006). The substances used in medicine should not contain free radicals, and they should be antioxidants. Pharmacological species as antioxidants react with free radicals, which loss their unpaired click here electrons and become diamagnetic. The activity of diamagnetic
molecules is lower than paramagnetic free radicals, the risk of modification of chemical structures in tissues decreases, and their functions are not destroyed (Jaroszyk, 2008; Bartosz, 2006). The examination of contents of free radicals in food (Pawłowska-Góral et al., 2013), drugs (Ramos et al., 2013), herbs (Kurzeja et al., 2013), biopolymers (Chodurek et al., 2012), cells (Pawłowska-Góral and Pilawa, 2011), and tissues (Eaton et al., 1998; Bartosz, 2006) by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) is known. EPR spectra were obtained for coffee (Nemtanu et al., 2005), tea (Wawer and Zawadzka, 2004), meat (Sin et al., 2005), dry fruits (Yordanov and Pachowa, 2006), and flour (Shimoyama et al., 2006). Free radicals may appear in drugs during sterilization processes, and such conditions accompanied by production of these paramagnetic dangerous molecules should be reject. The interacting factors
killing the microorganisms during sterilization of drugs are radiation or high temperature (Skowrońska et al., 2012; Wilczyński et al., 2012). EPR studies EPZ015938 clinical trial showed that gamma irradiation Vitamin B12 (Wilczyński et al., 2012) or heating of drugs (Skowrońska et al., 2012; Kościelniak-Ziemniak and Pilawa, 2012) or herbs (Pawłowska-Góral et al., 2013; Kurzeja et al., 2013) produce free radicals. EPR spectroscopy was used to determine the optimal condition of radiative (Wilczyński et al., 2012) and thermal sterilization of drugs (Skowrońska et al., 2012; Kościelniak-Ziemniak and Pilawa, 2012). Thermal sterilization of herbs also forms free radicals in their molecular units (Pawłowska-Góral et al., 2013; Kurzeja et al., 2013). Free radicals (Chodurek et al., 2012) and biradicals (Najder-Kozdrowska et al., 2010) were found by EPR method in melanin biopolymers, model melanins, and their complexes with metal ions and drugs (Najder-Kozdrowska et al., 2010).
