BACKGROUND Negative energy balance during late pregnancy in ewes is an important cause of hyperketonemia. Ketone bodies can generate superoxide radicals and cause oxidative stress and cellular dysfunction, as noted in cows with subclinical ketosis or in diabetic people. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of hyperketonemia in initiating the process of lipid peroxidation. METHODS The study included 10 pregnant ewes (aged 3.5-6 years) with pregnancy toxemia, 10 clinically… CONTINUE READING
