From the 90s until date, the incidence of this complication has increased. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) is a free radical with impaired electron that usually participates in the redox mechanisms of some(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of cyproterone acetate (CPA, A) compared with new synthetic steroids 3alpha-acetoxy-5,6-epoxy-16-pregnen-20-one (B) and 17alpha-hydroxy-16beta-methyl-1,4,6-pregnatriene-3,20-dione (C) in rat prostate and brain. Groups of animals were treated either with A, B or C (4 mg kg(-1) day(-1)) by the(More)
