Nephrotoxicity is an adverse side effect of methotrexate (MTX) chemotherapy. The present study verifies whether melatonin, an endogenous antioxidant prevents MTX‐induced renal damage. Adult rats were administered 7 mg/kg body weight MTX intraperitoneally for 3 days. In the melatonin pretreated rats, 40 mg/ kg body weight melatonin was administered daily intraperitoneally 1 h before the administration of MTX. The rats were killed 12 h after the final dose of MTX/vehicle. The kidneys were used… Expand
Quercetin ameliorates methotrexate-induced renal damage, apoptosis and oxidative stress in rats
TLDR
In conclusion, renal toxic effects of MTX may be alleviated by QE, which significantly suppressed MDA level, compensated deficits in the anti-oxidant defenses in kidney tissue resulted from MTX administration. Expand
Resveratrol ameliorates methotrexate-induced hepatotoxicity in rats via inhibition of lipid peroxidation
TLDR
RVT treatment significantly prevented MTX-induced hepatotoxicity, as indicated by AST, ALT, and ALP levels and liver histopathology, and revealed that RVT may have a protective effect against methotrexate (MTX) therapy by inhibiting oxidative stress-mediated lipid peroxidation. Expand
Curcumin Ameliorates Methotrexate-Induced Nephrotoxicity in Rats
TLDR
Curcumin protected rats from methotrexate nephrotoxicity, at least in part, through its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Expand
Beneficial effects of Chrysin against Methotrexate-induced hepatotoxicity via attenuation of oxidative stress and apoptosis
TLDR
Results suggest that Chrysin has a protective effect against hepatotoxicity induced by MTX and it may, therefore, improve the therapeutic index of MTX if co-administration is done. Expand
Toxic Effects of Methotrexate on Rat Kidney Recovered by Crocin as a Consequence of Antioxidant Activity and Lipid Peroxidation Prevention
TLDR
Administration of crocin improves the damage caused by MTX in rats, by the establishment of balance in the levels of antioxidant prevents the damage to the renal cell membrane, and subsequently the renal damage repairs. Expand
Mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress are involved in the mechanism of methotrexate-induced renal injury and electrolytes imbalance.
TLDR
A role for mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress in the mechanism of MTX nephrotoxicity is suggested. Expand
Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of virgin coconut oil supplementation abrogate acute chemotherapy oxidative nephrotoxicity induced by anticancer drug methotrexate in rats.
TLDR
VCO supplementation demonstrates nephroprotective activity by attenuating MTX oxidative nephrotoxicity via antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities in kidney and suggested that VCO may benefit cancer patients on MTX chemotherapy against kidney injury. Expand
Camel milk attenuates methotrexate-induced kidney injury via activation of PI3K/Akt/eNOS signaling and intervention with oxidative aberrations.
TLDR
The current findings demonstrate, for the first time, the renoprotective effects of CM in MTX-induced kidney injury via activation of PI3K/Akt/eNOS signaling and combating oxidative stress and apoptosis. Expand
