Lately, the emphasis has been given to the importance of oxidative stress as the determinants of respiratory diseases like Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and allergic rhinitis. Oxidative stress is a very important caution signal, fundamental for early diagnosis and treatment of respiratory illness. The significance of oxidative stress on the pathogenesis and development of respiratory diseases is partly recognized, as the mechanisms and importance of the process are still unknown. The increasing oxidant pollutant exposures have detrimental effects on public health as inhaled oxidants stimulate pathologic processes like airways inflammation and aggravation of airways disease. Hence it is critical to understand the mechanisms of oxidants and their impact on respiratory illness. This study aims to review 8 hydroxy 2 deoxyguanosine and Isoprostane biomarkers of oxidative stress in respiratory diseases. Measurement of these biomarkers of oxidative stress explores the role of free radicals in the pathogenesis, risk stratification and prognosis of conditions associated with oxidative stress in respiratory diseases. Thus, the incidence of oxidative stress has vital consequences in the pathogens of asthma, allergic rhinitis, and COPD..
