Effects of thymalin and α-tocopherol on morphofunctional state of neuroendocrine system at the early stages of atherogenesis

The effects of thymalin and α-tocopherol on the morphofunctional state of hypothalamohypophyseal neurosecretory system, thyroid gland, and adrenals at the early stages of atherogenesis are described. Correction of pathological changes in the neuroendocrine organs was accompanied by restoration of lipid homeostasis, decrease in intensity of lipid peroxidation, prevention of progressive atherosclerotic alterations in major arteries.
