  title={Effect of Selenium and Zinc Supplementation on Hypothyroidism in Rats},
  author={Hoda Salama Ibrahim and Naeem M. Rabeh and ALshymaa A. Sharaf ELden},
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of selenium and zinc supplementation on thyroid hormones (THs) in rats suffering from hypothyroidism (HT). Forty eight adult male albino rats (200 ± 7 g) were divided in two main groups. The first main group (n=6) was a -ve control, the second main group (n=42) was injected with PTU to induce HT. Then, these rats were divided into seven subgroups, subgroup one was fed on basal diet as a positive control; subgroups 2 -3 were fed on basal… Expand
