The protective effect of Nigella sativa seed extract and its main constituents thymoquinone (TQ) was studied on mouse cells infected with schistosomiasis. Bone marrow cells in the in vivo experiments and spleen cells in the in vitro one were used to evaluate the potentially protective effect of these natural compounds on the induction of chromosomal(More)
The production of micronuclei in mouse bone marrow by the pyrethroid insecticide, cypermethrin and the botanical insecticide, rotenone was examined. Three routes of administration were used for the insecticides: intraperitoneal, oral and dermal. The different routes of treatment with cypermethrin and rotenone caused toxicity of marrow as indicated by a(More)
The protective effect of calcium given orally by gavage with two doses (40 and 80mg/kg body weight) was evaluated against clastogenecity induced by lead acetate with two concentrations (200 and 400mg/kg diet) on bone marrow and spermatocyte cells of mice in vivo. The parameter screened was percentage of chromosomal aberrations with and without gaps and(More)
Aqueous extract of the date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) pits was prepared and its antigenotoxic activity was evaluated against N-Nitroso-N-methylurea (NMU) induced mutagenic effect in mice, using chromosome aberration (CA), micronuclei (MN) and DNA fragmentation assays as experimental end points in male mice. Date pits extract (DPE) was given orally to(More)
The genotoxicity of rifampicin was tested for sister chromatic exchange in bone marrow cells and for structural chromosomal aberrations in mouse germ cells. Sister chromatid exchange frequency increased after 160, 240 and 310 mg kg-1 body wt. doses but not after 80 mg kg-1. In spermatocytes, 80 mg kg-1 rifampicin increased the frequency of chromosomal(More)
