AbstractAIMS: Metabolic syndrome (MS) encompasses a group of problems which will put a person at a high risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, including heart attack and stroke. Effective prevention or treatment of MS significantly reduces the risk for developing serious complications. Palmitic acid (PA) is a saturated fatty acid, when being excessive, is a significant risk factor for development of MS or stroke. However, damage by MS to astrocytes is relatively unexplored. Catechin is an effective antioxidant which would be beneficial to neurons subjected to reactive oxygen species (ROS) damage as well ...
