Voluntary Exercise Prevents Lead-Induced Elevation of Oxidative Stress and Inflammation Markers in Male Rat Blood
Blood malondialdehyde in sedentary control and exercise groups before and after lead administrations. Seven days of lead injections (15 mg/kg body weight, ip) to the both sedentary and exercising animals caused significant raise of blood MDA (* compared to the “before lead administration” in Sed Co group, ** compared to the “before lead administration” in Ex group); in Ex animals MDA levels after the lead administrations were significantly lower than the Sed Co lead-injected animals (# compared to the “after lead administration” in the Sed Co group). The data are presented as means ± S.E.M. MDA: malondialdehyde; Sed Co: sedentary control group; Ex: exercise group.
