Recently, numerous studies have shown antioxidant actions of melatonin. Melatonin at both physiological and pharmacological levels stimulates glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase and superoxide dismutase activities in the brains of rats and chickens. This study was designed to evaluate the effect of melatonin on nephropathy and oxidative stress under constant light exposure. Nephropathy was induced by adriamycin administered in a single dose (25 mg kg(-1) b.w., i.p.). Melatonin was… CONTINUE READING
