Daily (VCE) supplementation of vitamins C and E can be beneficial to diabetic aged animals in reducing free radical production. The aim of this study was to investigate whether dietary VCE supplementation modulates oxidative stress and antioxidant redox systems in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced aged diabetic rats. Thirty aged rats (18 - 20 months) were… CONTINUE READING
