Viscum album, a semi-parasitic plant, has been used both in traditional and supplementary medicine in the treatment of many diseases. Quercetin (QE), one of the major flavonoids in some fruits and vegetables, has anti-oxidative and anti-carcinogenic activities. Methotrexate (MTX), an anti-folate anti-metabolite, is a widely used anti-neoplastic drug with significant clastogenic effects. The aim of this study was to investigate the anti-cytogenotoxic effects of pre-treatment with V. album… Expand
Methotrexate-Induced Nephrotoxicity in Rats: Protective Effect of Mistletoe (Viscum album L.) Extract
TLDR
It is demonstrated that HLX administration markedly reduced the MTX-induced acute oxidative stress and nephrotoxicity in rats through its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Expand

  • European journal of pharmacology
  • 2018
TLDR
Silibinin has a weak clastogenic effect, and in combination with MTX, it can enhance MTX's inhibitory effect on the MI and reduce CAs in bone marrow cells. Expand
The effect of quercetin on oxidative DNA damage and myelosuppression induced by etoposide in bone marrow cells of rats.

  • 2014
TLDR
Investigation of the influence of antioxidant querectin on myelosuppression and oxidative DNA damage caused by etoposide indicates that quercetin could be considered a protectively acting compound in bone marrow cells during etopOSide therapy. Expand
Anticancer potential of quercetin: A comprehensive review
TLDR
An overview of recent developments on the use of quercetin against different types of cancer along with mechanisms of action is presented and the potential utilization of this natural compound as a complimentary or alternative medicine for preventing and treating cancer is assessed. Expand
Brazilin isolated from Caesalpinia sappan L. inhibits rheumatoid arthritis activity in a type-II collagen induced arthritis mouse model
TLDR
Brazilin markedly attenuated mouse CIA and reduced the serum levels of inflammatory cytokines including TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6, and may be useful to treat chronic inflammatory disorders including rheumatoid arthritis. Expand
The Anti-Cancer Activity of Mistletoe Preparations, as Related to Their Polyphenolic Profiles
TLDR
Besides the various ingredients of mistletoe preparations that have been studied in relation to their immunological activities, the polyphenols contained in these preparations may contribute to combating dysfunctional metabolism in cancer cells, the tumour and the patient. Expand
Quercetin induces hepatic γ-glutamyl hydrolase expression in rats by suppressing hepatic microRNA rno-miR-125b-3p.
TLDR
A ninefold reduction in hepatic miRNA rno-miR-125b-3p was paralleled by significant induction of GGH mRNA in liver of quercetin fed rats, indicating increased GGH expressions were repeatedly associated with resistance to methotrexate, concomitant intake with quercETin should be monitored carefully. Expand
Quercetin-induced changes in femoral bone microstructure of adult male rabbits
TLDR
Findings indicate that subchronic administration of quercetin at the dose used in the study had considerable impact on both qualitative and quantitative histological characteristics of the compact bone in adult male rabbits. Expand
Silibinin attenuates methotrexate-induced pulmonary injury by targeting oxidative stress.
TLDR
Administration of silibinin was shown to ameliorate the MTX-induced pulmonary toxicity, as indicated by the normalization of the oxidative stress parameters. Expand
Genotoxicity of Thermopsis turcica on Allium cepa L. roots revealed by alkaline comet and random amplified polymorphic DNA assays
TLDR
Water extract of T. turcica has genotoxic potential on the roots of onion bulbs as shown by comet assay and RAPD technique and diagnostic and phenetic numerical analyses of RAPD profiles obviously indicated dose-dependent genotoxicity induced by Thermopsis extracts. Expand

Antioxidant and antimutagenic activities of Viscum album fruit ethanolic extract in human lymphocytes
TLDR
The antioxidant and antimutagenic potencies of polyphenolic compounds of Viscum album against trichloroethylene (TCE)-induced oxidative and genotoxic damage are evaluated and it is shown that the various DNA effects of TCE treatment seem to be DNA damages, but not mutations. Expand
Cytostatic and cytocidal effects of mistletoe (Viscum album L.) quercus extract Iscador.
TLDR
VA Qu was more effective in cells having a high proliferation rate than in those with a low proliferation rate and the inhibitory effect of VA Qu on the proliferation can be termed cytostatic, on the survival cytocidal. Expand
Antioxidant and antimutagenic effect of quercetin against DEN induced hepatotoxicity in rat
TLDR
The results indicate that QC ameliorates the DEN induced hepatotoxicity in rats and can be a candidate for a good chemoprotectant. Expand

TLDR
Overall, this study provides for the first time that quercetin has a protective role in the abatement of cisplatin-induced clastogenesis and apoptosis in the bone marrow cells of mice that resides, at least in part, in its antioxidant effects. Expand
Monosodium glutamate-induced oxidative damage and genotoxicity in the rat: modulatory role of vitamin C, vitamin E and quercetin
TLDR
The results indicate that dietary antioxidants have protective potential against oxidative stress induced by MSG and, in addition, suggest that active oxygen species may play an important role in its genotoxicity. Expand
Protective effect of quercetin and luteolin in human melanoma HMB-2 cells.
TLDR
The results concerning DNA protective potential against free radicals in HMB-2 cells demonstrated that quercetin and luteolin have significant effect in dose dependent manner. Expand
Inhibitory effect of quercetin on primary ovarian and endometrial cancers and synergistic activity with cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II)
TLDR
The combination of quercetin with two other chemotherapeutic agents, Adriamycin and etoposide (VP-16), did not yield any enhancement of the antiproliferative activity and two other flavonoids tested, rutin and hesperidin, were ineffective on colony formation both alone and in combination with CDDP.

Modulatory effects of caffeine on methotrexate-induced cytogenotoxicity in mouse bone marrow.
TLDR
CAF was weakly clastogenic to mouse bone marrow cells, however, pre-treatment of each of the three doses of CAF reduced the frequency of MTX 10mg/kg-induced aberrant metaphases, CAs, MN and also the percentage of dividing cells, but significantly only by the two higher doses ofCAF. Expand
Natural dietary agents can protect against DMBA genotoxicity in lymphocytes as revealed by single cell gel electrophoresis assay.
TLDR
Both alpha tocopherol and quercetin as single agents were found to be potent inhibitors of DNA damage (spontaneous and carcinogen induced) in a dose-dependent manner and the anticarcinogenic role of nutrients as well as non-nutrient dietary components need to be explored more extensively. Expand
