Several of the peroxisomal neurodegenerative disorders are the consequence of a specific deficiency of an enzyme or a transporter involved in peroxisomal beta-oxidation of very long chain fatty acids [1,2]. One of the hallmarks in these peroxisomal rare neurodegenerative diseases and in other common demyelinating disorders is the accompanying oxidative damage and neuroinflammation [3]. Compelling data indicates that oxidative stress can activate microglia leading to the overproduction of pro-inflammatory molecules [4,5]. Thus, targeting oxidative stress to limit neuroinflammation may open a new pharmacological therapy window for these still incurable devastating peroxisomal diseases. Here, we present different natural (resveratrol) [6] and synthetic (organoselenides) [7] antioxidant compounds for their capacity of scavenging oxidative stress and in the perspective therapeutic use against oxidative damage in peroxisomal disorders.


This abstract and the oral presentation are based upon work from COST Action NutRedOx-CA16112 supported by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology). The “Ministère des Affaires Etrangères: the Embassy of France in Egypt-Institut Français en Egypte” and the “Science and Technology Development Fund” by according to a postdoctoral fellowships to S. Shaaban and to A. El-shobaky. This work was also supported by the PHC Volubilis/Toubkal program of the Comité Mixte Inter-universitaire Franco-Marocain (CMIFM, MA/14/310 and TBK 19/92—CAMPUS: 41501RJ).
