The effects of some boron compounds against heavy metal toxicity in human blood.
The results revealed that the protective roles of boron compounds occurred with the effectiveness on their anti-oxidant capacity, which could be useful in the development of functional food and raw materials of medicine. Expand
Boric acid as a protector against paclitaxel genotoxicity.
It is suggested for the first time that boric acid can prevent the genotoxicity of PAC on human lymphocytes and cytotoxicity indices were diminished by the addition of BA. Expand
Boron compounds reduce vanadium tetraoxide genotoxicity in human lymphocytes.
Boron compounds have been shown to protect vanadium-induced DNA damage in vitro for the first time against vanadium(IV) tetraoxide genotoxicity. Expand

The preventive role of ascorbic acid in alleviating TiO(2)-induced DNA damage was indicated for the first time in the present study. Expand
Boric acid: a potential chemoprotective agent against aflatoxin b1 toxicity in human blood
The support of boric acid was especially useful in Aflatoxin-toxicated blood, thus the risk on tissue targeting of Aflat toxin B1 could be reduced ensuring early recovery from its toxicity. Expand
Carvacrol Codrugs: A New Approach in the Antimicrobial Plan
An insight is presented into the use of codrug strategy for developing carvacrol derivatives with antibacterial and antibiofilm potentials, and reduced cytotoxicity, and the most notable enhancement in the anti-bacterial activity is shown. Expand

It is indicated for the first time that boric acid and borax led to an increased resistance of DNA to damage induced by TiO2. Expand
In vitro studies on protective effect of Glycyrrhiza glabra root extracts against cadmium-induced genetic and oxidative damage in human lymphocytes
This study demonstrated for the first time that G. glabra extracts provided increased resistance of DNA against CdCl2 induced genetic and oxidative damage in human lymphocytes so, the risk on target tissues of C dCl2 could be reduced and ensured early recovery from its toxicity. Expand
The Risk Evaluation of Tungsten Oxide Nanoparticles in Cultured Rat Liver Cells for Its Safe Applications in Nanotechnology
Tungsten (VI) oxide (WO3) nanoparticles (NPs) are used for many industrial purposes in everyday life. However, their effects on human health have not been sufficiently evaluated. Therefore, theExpand
Evaluation of the Potential In Vivo Genotoxicity of Tungsten (VI) Oxide Nanopowder for Human Health
Tungsten (VI) oxide particles (WO3, <100 nm particle size) are used for many purposes including production of electro chromic windows, or smart windows, x-ray screen phosphors and gas sensors inExpand
