Enteral administration of SOD – gliadin extract of Cucumis melo L.C. gliadin for 28 days is useful as antioxidant prophylaxis against oxidative stress due to sepsis.

The results showed that enteral administration of CME-gliadin of 1 IU/day and 5 IU/day
significantly increased SOD levels based on examination after 14 and 28 days. Also, it significantly decreased
MDA (p < 0.001), TNF-α (p < 0.001), and lactate levels in rats induced by sepsis

The Effect of Exogenous Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) on Caspase-3 Activation and Apoptosis Induction in Pc-3 Prostate Cancer Cells

Administration of superoxide dismutase (SOD) increased apoptosis in a prostate cancer cell line (PC-3) through the increased expression of caspase-3. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) can be onsidered as a therapy for late-stage prostate cancer that had been progressed to hormone resistant and metastasized and promote apoptosis in those prostate cancer cells

Positive effects of an oral supplementation by GliSODin, a gliadin-combined SOD-rich melon extract, in an animal model of dietary-induced oxidative stress

We investigated the potential protective effects of two antioxidant molecules: Glisodin, a gliadin combined copper-zinc superoxide dismutase SOD (Cu,Zn SOD)-rich melon extract, SOD is a known enzyme that has been best studied as a regulator of antioxidant defence, and an antioxidant agent N-acetylcysteine (NAC).
