Doxorubicin (DOX) is a well-established chemotherapeutic drug widely used to treat a variety of cancers, though its clinical use is restricted by irreversible cardiotoxity. Earlier studies show beetroot juice (BRJ) as a potent chemopreventive agent; however its cardioprotective function is yet to be established. The purpose of this experiment is to determine the protective effect of BRJ against DOX-induced cardiotoxicity. It was hypothesized that higher concentrations of BRJ, applied to… CONTINUE READING
