Background: Vitrification is a process that can be used to preserve gonads in the healthy and natural status. Oxidative stress is one of the disadvantages of vitrification. Pentoxifylline (PTX) is an antioxidant that can reduce reactive oxidative stress effects. Objective: We aimed to investigate the effects of PTX on histological and ultra-structural features of vitrified and non-vitrified mouse ovarian tissue. Materials and Methods: Twenty-five adult female Balb-C mice were randomly and equally divided into control group: the ovaries did not receive any treatment; experimental 1 and 2: the vitrified ovaries were incubated in phosphate buffer solution and bovine serum albumin without and with PTX, respectively, for 30 min; sham 1 and 2: the non-vitrified ovaries were incubated in phosphate buffer solution and bovine serum albumin and were incubated without and with PTX, respectively for 30 min...
