Cryptotanshinone protects against oxidative stress in the paraquat-induced Parkinson’s disease model
Environ Toxicol. 2022 Sep 20. doi: 10.1002/tox.23660. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTParkinson's disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder associated with striatal dopaminergic neuronal loss in the Substantia nigra.
