OBJECTIVE We investigated whether estradiol may prevent accelerated atherosclerosis due to hyperhomocysteinemia by enhancing the antioxidant system. METHODS Male Wistar rats were treated with placebo (P) or 1 mg (1E2) and 2 mg (2E2) 17 beta estradiol. Half of the animals (n=6) from each group received homocysteine (Hcy, 100 mg/kg/day) administered in the(More)
High levels of homocysteine (Hcy) accelerate endothelial cell damage by producing hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)). We investigated whether 17-beta estradiol may prevent the accelerated rate of endothelial cell detachment and reduced cell viability in cultured endothelial cells challenged with Hcy. Cultured bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAEC) were incubated(More)
