Table 1 MDA and NO levels in ipsilateral testes of rats after undergoing testicular ischemia with or without ischemic preconditioning. Data are expressed as mean ± SD. *p < 0.05 vs. Group 1.

From: The protective effect of ischemic preconditioning on rat testis

Group Intervention MDA (nmol/mg protein) NO (μ mol/mg protein)
1 No preconditioning + 180 min ischemia 0.22 ± 0.08 0.44 ± 0.24
2 "10 min transient ischemia + 10 min reperfusion" + 180 min ischemia 0.05 ± 0.03* 0.21 ± 0.20
3 "20 min transient ischemia + 10 min reperfusion" + 180 min ischemia 0.15 ± 0.09 0.29 ± 0.15
4 "30 min transient ischemia + 10 min reperfusion" + 180 min ischemia 0.17 ± 0.08 0.32 ± 0.15
5 "3 × consecutive 10 min transient ischemia + 10 min reperfusion" + 180 min ischemia 0.05 ± 0.03* 0.07 ± 0.04*
6 "3 consecutive 5 × 10 × 20 min transient ischemia + 10 min reperfusion" + 180 min ischemia 0.27 ± 0.10 0.42 ± 0.21
7 "3 consecutive 10 × 20 × 30 min transient ischemia + 10 min reperfusion" + 180 min ischemia 0.25 ± 0.15 0.34 ± 0.18
