  author={Mohammad Narimani-Rad and Alireza Lotfi and Mehran Mesgari Abbasi and Bita Abdollahi},
The aim of present experiment was to investigate the possible effects of ip-injected (peripheral) cornelian cherry fruit (CCF) extract on serum ghrelin and corticosterone levels of experimental rat model. Animals were assigned into 6 experimental groups; group1 as control 1or intact group (without any injection treatment), group 2 as control 2 or placebo group (injected with solvent without CCF extract), and 4 groups with injection respectively with 50, 100, 200, and 400 mg/kg BW CCF extract…
