Abstract

Baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) and central arterial function are significantly worsened after menopausal transition. This study tested the hypothesis that administration of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) might contribute to prevent these adverse changes in the vascular function of ovariectomized rats, an animal model of experimental menopause.
