Does ascorbate/L-Cys/L-Met mixture protect different parts of the rat brain against chronic alcohol toxicity?

Abstract

Chronic ingestion of high levels of alcohol may cause oxidative stress that results in the formation, through alcohol metabolism, of excess free radicals, acetaldehyde, lipid and protein oxidation, and their reactivity products. These harmful molecules may trigger oxidative damage to neurons and can cause cell death. It is hypothesized that cysteine… (More)
