The chemopreventive action of quercetin was examined during 20-methyl cholanthrene induced cervical neoplasia in virgin Swiss albino mice. The effects were evaluated on the basis of histopathological observation of the cervical epithelium, micronucleus frequency in vaginal exfoliated cells and some biochemical parameters in the host liver. Quercetin was found to arrest or reverse the progression of cervical neoplasia. The micronucleus frequency was reduced following its administration. The… CONTINUE READING
