    Abstract: The nigrostriatal pathway is a dopaminergic pathway that connects the substantia nigra with the dorsal striatum. Loss of dopamine neurons in the substantia nigra is one of the main pathological features of Parkinson's disease, leading to a marked reduction in dopamine function in this pathway. This study aimed at evaluating the protective role of t... Show More

    Abstract: A link between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) development has been already described, along with an oxidative stress-induced reduction of anion exchange capability through Band 3 protein. On this basis, blood from SSc patients has been collected to measure the rate constant for SO4= uptake, which is an index for anion ex... Show More
