Özet

Background: Oxidative stress is involved in several pathologic conditions such as metabolic or cardiovascular disease, and in aging. Oxidative damage of biomolecules increases with age. Melatonin is the main neurohormone of the pineal gland and specific antioxidants may act against age-related oxidative damage.
