Oxidative stress parameters were evaluated in rat testes after chronic iron intoxication and vitamin E supplementation. Male Wistar rats were fed during 6 weeks with the following diets: C = rat chow; I = C + 25 mg carbonyl-iron/g diet; A = C + 0.2 mg alpha-tocopheryl acetate/g diet; and the combination of I and A (IA). After the treatment, no changes in final body weight, testis weight and protein content were observed. Total iron content in testes from the I group was 33% higher compared to… CONTINUE READING
