Various neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease negatively affect the life quality of many patients. These diseases are associated with oxidative stress that increases the rate of brain tissue destruction. So far, the application of antioxidants represents a treatment possibility. Amongst antioxidants, 8-hydroxyquinoline and its derivatives showed promising results.
