The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between the CYP450 enzyme family and cisplatin toxicity. This article examined a collection of studies suggesting that CYP450 enzymes may influence cisplatin toxicity. We performed a narrative mini-review. The studies review showed that CYP450 enzymes have an important role in drug-induced hepatotoxicity(More)
Leukocytoclastic vasculitis is typically mediated by deposition of immune complexes and is related to many causes, including medication. To the best of our knowledge, leukocytoclastic vasculitis related to cisplatin has not yet been described in the scientific literature. We report a rare case of leukocytoclastic vasculitis after the first cycle of(More)
BACKGROUND Phase I of this study was aimed at comparing the profiles of oxidative stress biomarkers in patients with history of nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC), previously treated with surgery, to the healthy subjects. Phase II aimed to evaluate the effects of supplementary antioxidant therapy on the levels of biomarkers in the case group. MATERIALS AND(More)
Cisplatin is a widely used antineoplastic agent in the treatment of head and neck cancer. However, it is highly nephrotoxic. Oxidative stress is the main mechanism responsible for cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity. The aim of this study was to characterize cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity, oxidative stress in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, and the(More)
AIM Our objective was to verify the energy balance in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats chronically treated with lipoic acid (LA). METHODS Diabetes was induced in rats by streptozotocin and the animals divided into four groups, comprising controls and diabetic rats, with each group receiving either daily intraperitoneal LA (30 mg/kg) or a buffer(More)
