Abstract

Aim: Oxidative stress is stated to be an important mechanism of cold immobilization stress leading to tissue injury. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of exogenous leptin administration on plasma and hepatic tissue lipid peroxidation and antioxidant status in cold-restraint stress.
