Quercetin, a flavonoid antioxidant, prevents and protects against ethanol-induced oxidative stress in mouse liver.
This study evaluates whether quercetin (25, 50 and 75 mg/kg body weight) treatment has a protective effect on the pro-oxidant-antioxidant state following chronic ethanol treatment in mice.Expand

Neuroprotective effect of fraxetin and myricetin against rotenone-induced apoptosis in neuroblastoma cells
Rotenone-induced apoptosis is considered to contribute to the etiology of Parkinson's disease (PD). We try to prevent the apoptosis induced by rotenone toxicity with 50 microM myricetin, 100 microMExpand
