Inhibitory effects of lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus Stapf) on formation of azoxymethane-induced DNA adducts and aberrant crypt foci in the rat colon.

Abstract

The 80%-ethanol extract of lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus Stapf), a medicinal plant in Thailand, has been reported to be antimutagenic against various known mutagens in the Salmonella mutation assay. To investigate chemoprevention in an animal carcinogenesis model, we examined inhibitory effects of the lemon grass extract on the formation of azoxymethane… (More)
