Epicatechin protective effects on bleomycin-induced pulmonary oxidative stress and fibrosis in mice

Abstract Lung fibrosis is a chronic and intermittent pulmonary disease, caused by damage to the lung parenchyma due to inflammation and fibrosis. Epicatechin (Epi) as a flavonoid has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of Epi on oxidative stress, inflammation and pulmonary fibrosis induced by bleomycin (BLM) in mice. […]
