Dietary antimutagens have been studied extensively in the last two decades, using mainly bacterial and mammalian cells. These studies have shown that certain dietary antimutagens, acting individually or as mixtures, are useful in counteracting the effects of certain mutagens and/or carcinogens to which humans are commonly exposed. However, there are some inconsistencies among publications using different bioassays. The general purpose of the research presented here was to conduct a comparative… 
Use of the Marine Prophage Induction Assay (MPIA) to detect environmental mutagens
TLDR
There was good correspondence between positive MPIA results and detection of potentially toxic compounds by laboratory analysis, possibly due to the limited range of compounds included in the laboratory testing performed, although false positive assay results cannot be ruled out.
Alkyl Mercury chloride compounds-induced genotoxicity in human blood cultures and corrective role of Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) Rania,
TLDR
Data revealed that, mutagenic activity of MMC and the protective role of Vitamin C on mercury compounds-induced genotoxicity in human lymphocyte cultures is probably due to its strong antioxidant and nucleophilic nature.
Modulation of mutagen-induced genotoxicity by vitamin C and medicinal plants in Allium cepa L.
TLDR
Three concentrations of extracts of the medicinal plants Xysmalobium undulatum, leaves of Helichrysum caespititum and ascorbic acid and their mixtures with CP or EMS were cytotoxic and genotoxic, indicating a synergistic interaction.
Modulatory effects of the antioxidant ascorbic acid on the direct genotoxicity of doxorubicin in somatic cells of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
The results suggest that AA may interfere with free radicals generated by DXR and with other possible reactive metabolites, which could affect the efficiency of AA in protecting the somatic cells of D. melanogaster against mutation and recombination induced byDXR.
Mutagenicity, antioxidant potential, and antimutagenic activity against hydrogen peroxide of cashew (Anacardium occidentale) apple juice and cajuina
TLDR
The results indicate that CAJ and cajuina have mutagenic, radical‐trapping, antimutagenics, and comutagenic activity and that these properties can be related to the chemical constituents of the juices.
Assessement of genotoxicity of Dichlorvos to Mystus vittatus (Bloch) by comet assay.
TLDR
The study revealed the potential hazard of the pesticide to fishes and indicated suitability of the comet assay to detect DNA damage induced by the pesticide even at lower concentrations and revealed the lowest DNA damage was observed on day 1 at sublethal 1 concentration.
Short-term in vitro and in vivo genotoxicity testing systems for some water bodies of Northern India
TLDR
A significant level of phage induction was also recorded in the test system exhibiting maximum induction in case of industrial waste water followed by that in river and groundwater samples, respectively, suggestive of the DNA damage induced by the test samples with the probable role of SOS repair in E. coli.
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)-Mediated Protection on Mutagenic Potentials of Cisplatin in Mice Bearing Ascites Dalton ’s Lymphoma
TLDR
The overall studies suggest that ascorbic acid with its antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties may play a part in its protective role in the abatement of cisplatin-induced mutagenesis and oxidative damage in the normal tissues of mice.

Reproducibility of microbial mutagenicity assays: II. Testing of carcinogens and noncarcinogens in Salmonella typhimurium and Escherichia coli.
TLDR
The intra- and interlaboratory reproducibility of the Salmonella assay with regard to the overall judgment of mutagenic or nonmutagenic was good, but the results in the E coli strain exhibited a high degree of variability between laboratories.
Induction of prophage lambda by chlorinated organics: Detection of some single‐species/single‐site carcinogens
TLDR
The prophage‐induction (or other SOS) assay may be useful in identifying some genotoxic chlorinated carcinogens that induce DNA damage that does not revert the standard Salmonella tester strains.
