Propolis prevents aluminium-induced genetic and hepatic damages in rat liver.
It can be concluded that propolis has beneficial influences and could be able to antagonize AlCl(3) toxicity. Expand
Effects of Some Boron Compounds on Peripheral Human Blood
It was found that the boron compounds do not have genotoxic effects even in the highest concentrations, though in increasing doses they constitute oxidative stress, and it is concluded that the tested borons can be used safely, but it is necessary to consider the tissue damages which are likely to appear depending on the oxidative stress.

The effect of carvacrol on healthy neurons and N2a cancer cells: some biochemical, anticancerogenicity and genotoxicity studies
The present findings demonstrated that CVC could be a source of antioxidant and chemopreventive activities to be studied on cancer diseases. Expand
The genotoxic, hepatotoxic, nephrotoxic, haematotoxic and histopathological effects in rats after aluminium chronic intoxication
Subchronic exposure to low doses of Al can produce serious dysfunctions in rat blood, liver and kidney, and exposure to this metal can result in greater damages. Expand
An in vitro blood culture for evaluating the genotoxicity of titanium dioxide: the responses of antioxidant enzymes
TiO2 can enhance oxidative stress-mediated DNA damage in vitro and induce genotoxic effects, as observed by the increases found in SCE and MN frequencies in TiO2-treated cultures. Expand
Antioxidative, anticancer and genotoxic properties of α-pinene on N2a neuroblastoma cells
Abstractα-Pinene, an organic monoterpene, is found in essential oils of pine and coniferous trees. To date, although various biological activities of α-pinene have been demonstrated, itsExpand
In vitro assessment of cytogenetic and oxidative effects of α-pinene
In conclusion, the findings of the present study confirm for the first time that α-pinene could be a significant source of natural antioxidant compound that may have beneficial health effects. Expand
Toxicologic evaluation of imazalil with particular reference to genotoxic and teratogenic potentials
The cytogenetic results clearly showed that IMA caused increases of the frequencies of the structural chromosomal aberrations and the rates of MN as compared to controls in a dose-dependent manner, which is of importance in the assessment of the potential risk of fungicides as IMA on aquatic ecosystems and humans. Expand
Assessment of cytogenetic and cytotoxic effects of chlorhexidine digluconate on cultured human lymphocytes
A dose-dependent toxic effect was found depending on CHX incubation on the genetic and cell viability of the lymphocytes and it should be considered during periodontal irrigation or novel CHX products at lower concentrations should be manufactured for clinical usage. Expand
Solid lipid nanoparticles loaded with lipoyl-memantine codrug: preparation and characterization.
In vitro stability and release studies and preliminary in vitro cytotoxicity studies revealed that LA-MEM loaded SLNs could represent potential candidate for an in vivo investigation as DDS for the brain since it resulted devoid of citotoxicity and able to release the free codrug. Expand
