|Abstract||The objective of this study is to demonstrate the role of oxidative stress and dopaminergic neurodegeneration in the development of equine pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID). The results support the hypothesis that PPID is a dopaminergic neurodegenerative disease. Horses with PPID had 5 times less tyrosine hydroxylase staining, indicating five-fold reduction in the number of dopaminergic terminals in the pars intermedia..|
