This study investigated the effects of estradiol valerate (EV) and tibolone (TB) treatments on some memory parameters of ovariectomized young (2 months), adult (8 months) and old (20 months) female rats. A Sham-operated group was used as control and the animals were treated daily, by oral gavage, with saline (Sham and placebo NR group), EV (0.3 mg/kg) or TB(More)
Estrogen compounds have been described as important brain protectors. This study investigated the effects of estradiol valerate (EV--0.3 mg/kg) and two concentrations of tibolone (TB1=0.5 mg/kg and TB2=1 mg/kg) on brain oxidative stress parameters and blood biochemistry in ovariectomized female rats, of three different age groups (young--2 months, adult--8(More)
