Inhibitory effect of melatonin on products of lipid peroxidation resulting from chronic ethanol administration.

Despite decades of research, the role of free radicals in alcohol-induced organ injury is still a matter of debate. The present work was designed to investigate the potential protective effect of melatonin, a reported radical scavenger and antioxidant, on free radical toxicity induced by chronic ethanol administration. The major end-point of oxidative… CONTINUE READING
