Antioxidant properties of ghrelin have been recently reported on various oxidative stresses in limited tissues. This study was set to examine the possible antioxidative effects of ghrelin in rat ovarian tissue. Twenty eight female adult Wistar rats were randomly allocated into control and treatment groups. Treatment group (n=14) received 2nmol of ghrelin as subcutaneous injection for 14 consecutive days or vehicle (physiological saline) to the control rats. The animals from both groups were… CONTINUE READING
