Financial support for this research came from Istanbul Universitesi.
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the Cerrahpasa Faculty of Medicine, “Therefore, in the light of more than ever aging societies and increasing neurodegenerative diseases, we aimed to test the biochemical effects of CR on redox homeostasis in different parts of male Sprague-Dawley rat brain by using the biomarkers we consistently validated in our previous work (TOS, PCO, AOPP, AGEs, sRAGE, P-SH, LHPs, 4-HNE, TAS, Cu, Zn-SOD). Our results indicate that oxidative stress biomarkers are lower in CR group, implying a more favorable redox status that has been previously shown to be correlated with better neural function.”
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: “We report that the beneficial effects of caloric restriction (CR) on various brain tissues result in significant improvements in biochemical markers, even though CR is not started in early adulthood. Hence, our select age group provides a sound redox status-related neurochemical understanding for many recent CR studies, where a functional loss was detected at this age.”
