The present study was conducted to evaluate the toxicity of the exposure to diphenyl diselenide [(PhSe)2] and diphenyl ditelluride [(PhTe)2] on reproductive system in Wistar rats. Adult male rats were exposed intraperitonealy (acute) or subcutaneously (sub-chronic, during 4 or 8 weeks) to (PhSe)2 or (PhTe)2 prior to mating. A number of biochemical parameters in rat testes were examined, such as delta-aminolevulinate dehydratase (delta-ALA-D) activity, lipid peroxidation, glycogen content and… CONTINUE READING
