Protective effect of ascorbic acid on cadmium-induced hypertension and vascular dysfunction in mice


Cadmium (Cd) is one of the most important environmental pollutants that cause a number of adverse health effects in humans and animals. Recent studies have shown that Cd-induced oxidative damage within the vascular tissues results in vascular dysfunction. The current study was aimed to investigate whether ascorbic acid could protect against Cd-induced… (More)
