Effect of BPF on hypercholesterolemic diet-induced oxidative stress. Serum lipid peroxidation products were assessed by TBARS assay in normolipemic as well as in hyperlipemic rats either untreated or treated with BPF (20 mg/Kg daily × 90 days). Concentration of TBARS (μmol/Lt plasma), which was found increased in hyperlipemic rats, was reduced significantly by treatment with BPF. Data are expressed as Mean ± SEM. *: p < 0.05 vs normolipemic. §: p < 0.05 vs hyperlipemic
