    Abstract: Oxidative stress mechanisms are involved in xenobiotic-induced testicular dysfunctions which consequently lead to male infertility, however, antioxidants work like a defense system, disarming free radicals. Therefore, this study is aimed at investigating the maintenance of testicular integrity using D-Riboce-L-cysteine on X–ray induced testicular d... Show More
