Liver cancer is one of the most common solid tumors worldwide. Extensive research was carried out to document the powerful properties of Nigella sativa (N. sativa) as an anti-tumor, bactericide, anticestode, antinematode, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-diabetic and diuretic with many other uses. Little is known about the Nigella sativa anti-tumor property in liver cancers, thus our current study was performed to investigate the protective role of Nigella sativa in DAB induced liver… Expand

Protective effects of Nigella sativa against 7,12-dimethylbenz [á] anthracene (DMBA) induced carcinogenesis in rats
TLDR
Nigella sativa seed extract was able to reduce the liver damage and proliferation in rats induced by DMBA administration and showed a difference in liver tissue histopathological profile between the NSS, DMBA control, and the solvent control group. Expand
Evaluation of the protective effect of Nigella sativa extract and its primary active component thymoquinone against DMBA-induced breast cancer in female rats
TLDR
TQ and then BCS oil reduced the rate of tumor markers, inhibited the histopathological alterations and decreased the expression of the Brca1, Brca2, Id-1 and P53 mutations in mammary tissues of female rats induced by DMBA treatment, suggesting that TQ and BCSOil exert a protective effect against breast carcinogens.

The present study was investigated to study the effects ofCone Flowers (Echinacea Purpurea), Black seeds(Nigella sativa) and Dates palm ( Phoenix Dactyliferous, L) on CCl4 induced hepatotoxicityinExpand
Hepatoprotective effect of Descurainia sophia seed extract against paracetamol-induced oxidative stress and hepatic damage in mice
TLDR
Pretreatment of mice with D. sophia seed extract significantly prevented the paracetamol induced elevation in the levels of serum ALT, AST and ALP, total bilirubin and MDA (P < 0.05). Expand
An Ultrastructural Study on the Effect of Nigella Sativa and Hydrocortisone on Adult Albino Rat Testis
Background: Nigella sativa is consumed excessively in Saudi Arabia and Gulf Countries. Hydrocortisone is a synthetic glucocorticoid widely used in the medical fields. The present study aimed toExpand
Effect of Hexane Seed Extract of Nigella Sativa on Cadmium Induced Renal Dysfunction in Rats ONOSHE S * and MADUSOLUMUO M.A

THE EFFECT OF CRUDE Nigella sativa OIL AGAINST THE ACUTE TOXICITY OF DICLOFENAC SODIUM AND IBUPROFEN ON THE LIVERS OF ALBINO MICE
TLDR
The hepatoprotective effect of N. sativa oil was confirmed and the effect of Nigella sativaOil against the acute toxicity induced by the drugs diclofenac and ibuprofen on the liver enzymes, body weight and Hepatosomatic index of Swiss albino mice was investigated. Expand

Protective Effect of Curcuma longa or Nigella sativa on Aflatoxin B1- Induced Hepato-Toxicity in Rats in Relation to Food Safety on Public Health
TLDR
The immunoglobulin biomarkers as IgG, IgM, IgA, were decreased in rats treated with AFB1, but they increased after treatment with N. sativa or Curcuma longa, and these biochemical observations were supported by histopathological examination of liver sections. Expand

The effect of Nigella sativa oil against the liver damage induced by Schistosoma mansoni infection in mice.
TLDR
The results suggest that Nigella sativa oil may play a role against the alterations caused by S. mansoni infection, an effect which may be induced partly by improving the immunological host system and to some extent with its antioxidant effect. Expand
Cytotoxic and immunopotentiating effects of ethanolic extract of Nigella sativa L. seeds.
TLDR
Data indicate that CC-5 possesses a potent cytotoxic effect as well as a potentiating effect on the cellular immune response, and the mechanism whereby it produces this needs to be resolved. Expand

TLDR
In vivo, using the DBA2/P815 (H2d) mouse model, the results clearly showed that the injection of the essential oil into the tumor site significantly inhibited solid tumor development and improved mouse survival. Expand
Role of Nigella sativa and a number of its antioxidant constituents towards azoxymethane‐induced genotoxic effects and colon cancer in rats
TLDR
Results suggest that the protective role of Nigella sativa against the initiation of colon carcinogenesis might depend on the combined competitive inhibition of various antioxidant constituents of this plant. Expand
Extraction, isolation and characterisation of antitumor principle, alpha-hederin, from the seeds of Nigella sativa.
TLDR
The effect of CC-5 was evaluated for its in vivo antitumor activity against i.p. (intraperitoneally) implanted murine P388 leukemia and s.c. (subcutaneously) implanted LL/2 (Lewis lung carcinoma) cells in BDF1 mice (C57BL/6 x DBA/2 mice), which prolonged the life span of these mice by 153% compared to DMSO-treated control mice. Expand
Protective effect of black seed oil from Nigella sativa against murine cytomegalovirus infection.
TLDR
Results show that BSO exhibited a striking antiviral effect against MCMV infection which may be mediated by increasing of Mφ number and function, and IFN-gamma production. Expand
The role of antioxidant vitamins (C and E), selenium and Nigella sativa in the prevention of liver fibrosis and cirrhosis in rabbits: new hopes.
TLDR
Histopathological findings demonstrate that NS might, at least partly, be successful in the prevention of liver fibrosis in rabbits and vitamin E plus selenium had little therapeutic effect and vitamin C seemed to be ineffective. Expand
Effects of volatile oil constituents of Nigella sativa on carbon tetrachloride-induced hepatotoxicity in mice: evidence for antioxidant effects of thymoquinone.
TLDR
The results of the present study indicate that TQ (12.5 mg/Kg, i.p.) may play an important role as antioxidant and may efficiently act as a protective agent against chemically-induced hepatic damage. Expand
Antiepileptogenic and antioxidant effects of Nigella sativa oil against pentylenetetrazol-induced kindling in mice
TLDR
The hypothesis that neuroprotective action of NSO may correlate with its ability to inhibit not only excessive reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation but also seizure generation is supported. Expand
Inhibition of methylnitrosourea (MNU) induced oxidative stress and carcinogenesis by orally administered bee honey and Nigella grains in Sprague Dawely rats.
TLDR
Supplementing diet with honey and Nigella sativa has a protective effect against MNU-induced oxidative stress, inflammatory response and carcinogenesis and abolished the NO and MDA elevations shown in sera of animals who did not receive these nutrients. Expand
