Comparative Study on the Influence of Epigallocatechin-3-gallate and/or Coenzyme Q10 against Alzheimer’s disease Induced by Aluminium in Normally-Fed and Protein Malnourished Rats


Background: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder greatly influenced by oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction which may lead to deposition of β-amyloid (Aβ) peptides. Protein malnutrition increases oxidative damage in cortex, hippocampus and cerebellum. Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) has health-promoting effects in CNS, while… (More)
