The aim of this study was to evaluate the morphological changes, liver function test (LFT), and oxidative stress damage caused by thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), in mice exposed to vanadium via inhalation. Male CD-1 mice were exposed to vanadium pentoxide (V(2)O(5)) via inhalation (0.02 M), 1 hour twice a week for 6 weeks. At the end of the… CONTINUE READING
