Description

Neuroprotection refers to the use of any therapeutic modality that prevents, retards, or reverses neuronal cell death during the degenerative process. The aim of the present study was to determine the neuroprotective effects of Rhus coriaria L. (R. coriaria) fruit extract. Ethanol extract of the R. coriaria fruit was prepared via maceration technique and tested for its neurotoxic properties on retinal photoreceptor cells (RGC-5). Cell viability (MTT), Hoechst staining and caspase levels were...[Show more]
