I will definitely have to read the whole article. There was bracial artery dilation (?not sure what that was about?) but " Venous blood was analyzed for C-reactive protein (CRP), lipid hydroperoxides (LH), the ferric reducing ability of plasma (FRAP), superoxide dismutase (SOD), and catalase activity" so it was analyzing venoux blood, presumably after it had circulated through the brain, I am not sure. The article makes statements about systemic inflamation, so I don't think it is about only the brachial artery.
Sorry I haven't had time to read the article, but I am really rushed this afternoon. Probably get to it tomorrow.
