Mercury has been recognized as an industrial hazard that adversely affects male reproductive systems of humans and animals. However, less information is available concerning the underlying mechanism in the pathogenesis of male reproductive dysfunction. The present study investigated the possible involvement of oxidative stress to induce oxidative deterioration of testicular functions in adult rats. Wistar male rats (n=132) were continuously exposed to HgCl(2) at 0, 50 and 100 ppm during 90 days… CONTINUE READING
