The effects of chronic melatonin treatment on myocardial function and ischaemia and reperfusion injury in a rat model of diet-induced obesity
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2010-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Obesity is a major risk factor for ischaemic heart disease. Obesity-induced metabolic abnormalities have been associated with increased oxidative stress which may play an important role in the increased ...
