Purpose: Aging is related to multiple and systemic dysfunctions in the body, accompanied by metabolic disorders and oxidative stress. Although studies are revealing the role of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress in aging-related pathologies, this relationship has not been fully elucidated. In this study, it was aimed to reveal changes in liver function, plasma lipids, and oxidative stress markers due to aging and gender, and to investigate how these parameters change with ER stress inhibitor tauro-ursodeoxycholic acid (TUDCA) treatment.
