Methamphetamine (MA) is a psychostimulant that target the sensory systems, with the neurosensory retina having been shown to be affected. In the brain, MA-related toxicity can be linked to oxidative stress; the same relationship has yet to be established for the retina. The aim of this study, therefore, was to evaluate the effects of repeated exposure to MA on oxidative stress parameters in the rat retina. Oxidative stress parameters in the blood plasma were also assessed. Male Wistar rats were… CONTINUE READING
