The objective of this study was to determine the effects of two structurally(More)
The effect of rasagiline on learning and memory in Lister-Hooded rats was investigated in this study. Two cognitive tests were used: a 24-h temporal deficit novel object recognition test and a modified water maze task.

NOX enzymes not only have a key role in a variety of physiological processes but also contribute to oxidative stress in certain disease states. To date, while numerous small molecule inhibitors have been reported (in particular for NOX2), none have(More)
Women practicing contraception before their third child were defined as early adopters and those practicing it after, labeled as late adopters.
