Özet

OBJECTIVE: Oxygen free radical-mediated lipid peroxidation has been proposed to be one of the major mechanisms of secondary damage in traumatic brain injury. The first purpose of this study was to establish the time-level relationship for lipid peroxidation in injured brain tissue. The second purpose was to examine the protective effect of alpha-tocopherol against lipid peroxidation.
