Abstract Context: Oxidative stress plays a key role in the patho-physiology of hypertension. (-)-Epicatechin has many important biological properties. Objective: The present study was undertaken to evaluate effect of (-)-epicatechin on protein carbonyl content in gender-based hypertensive patients and normal subjects. Methods: The study was carried out on 83 normal (male: 42

female: 41) and 62 hypertensive subjects (male: 32

female: 30). In vitro effect on (-)-epicatechin and L-ascorbic acid was estimated on protein carbonyl content. Results: Result showed a significant (p < 0.001) increase in protein carbonyl content in hypertensive patients but no gender-based difference was observed. (-)-epicatechin shows significant (p < 0.001) dose-dependent effect as compared to L-ascorbic acid, which is manifested as decrease in protein carbonyl content. Conclusion: We hypothesizes that a higher intake of (-)-epicatechin may provide protection against hypertension in males and females.
