Antioxidant and antiapoptotic effects of darbepoetin-α against traumatic brain injury in rats

Abstract

INTRODUCTION In this study, we tried to determine whether darbepoetin-α would protect the brain from oxidative stress and apoptosis in a rat traumatic brain injury model. MATERIAL AND METHODS The animals were randomized into four groups; group 1 (sham), group 2 (trauma), group 3 (darbepoetin α), group 4 (methylprednisolone). In the sham group only the… (More)
