Most of breast cancer patients are treated with CMF, which is a combination of three anticancer agents, cyclophosphamide, methotrexate and 5-fluorouracil. Metabolites of CMF induce lipid peroxidation by inactivating the antioxidant enzymes, thereby rendering the system inefficient in management of the free radical attack. Acrolein and phosphoramide mustard(More)
CMF and radiation treatment alter the erythrocyte membrane architecture in breast cancer patients by inducing free radical formation in the system. The increased free radicals hydrolyze the unsaturated fatty acyl chains of membrane phospholipids and thus alter the membrane lipid profile. To assess the erythrocyte membrane damage caused by CMF chemotherapy(More)
CMF is a combination of anticancer chemotherapeutic agents Cyclophosphamide, Methotrexate and 5-Fluorouracil. Vitamin E protects the basolateral membrane (BSM) from CMF induced lipid peroxidative damages. Rats were treated intravenously with cyclophosphamide-10 mg, methotrexate-1.0 mg and 5-fluorouracil-10 mg per kg body weight for six cycles. Vitamin E(More)
Malignant tumors are known to exhibit high rates of glycolytic activity leading to high production of lactic acid. Hence, neoplastic cells have elevated activity of enzymes responsible for glycolysis. Echitamine chloride, an indole alkaloid extracted from the bark of Alstonia scholaris, has been reported to have a highly promising anticancer activity(More)
Semecarpus anacardium Linn., which belongs to the Anacardiaceae family, has been used in both Ayurveda and Siddha system against various ailments. The present study was carried out to establish the antihyperlipidemic and antiinflammatory effect of S. anacardium Linn. nut milk extract (SA) in diabetes-induced cardiovascular complications in rats. Type 2(More)
In a comparative study on the effect of CMF (Combination of Cyclophosphamid, Methotroxate and 5-Fluorouracil) on the pre and postmenopausal women with breast cancer, a number of differences were observed in circulating plasma lipid concentration. Plasma lipids, phospholipids, triglycerides, cholesterol and free fatty acids levels were all lower in blood(More)
Most of the breast cancer patients are treated with CMF which is a combination of three anticancer agents namely cyclophosphamide, methotrexate and 5-fluorouracil. The metabolites of CMF induce the level of lipid peroxides in the system, which are circulated in the blood. The present study reports the effect of CMF on the levels of cholesterol and(More)
Semecarpus anacardium is a commonly used drug in the Siddha system of medicine for curing various metabolic disorders. The cardio protective effect of the drug in Type 2 diabetes-induced cardiovascular complications was studied in rats by feeding them with a high fat diet for 2 weeks followed by intra peritoneal injection of streptozotocin at a moderate(More)
Liver diseases pose a major challenge to international public health. Hepatic damage is associated with distortion of metabolic functions of the liver. The present study was carried out to evaluate the hepatoprotective effect of the ethanolic extract of whole plant of Andrographis paniculata in CCl4-induced hepatotoxicity in albino rats. Hepatotoxicity was(More)
