Abstract

Objective: Male osteoporosis (OP) is a major problem in clinical medicine, but has gained less interest than female OP The mechanisms of male OP have not been explained well and are not clear yet. It is suggested that there is a role for oxidative stress in the pathophysiology of many diseases, one of them being OR In this study, we investigated the effect of orchiectomy on bone mineral density (BMD), the level of antioxidant enzymes, lipid peroxidation, and erythrocyte deformability in rats and the effect of vitamin C supplementation on the possible changes in these parameters.
