Protective effect of genistein on radiation-induced intestinal injury in tumor bearing mice


BACKGROUND Radiation therapy is the most widely used treatment for cancer, but it causes the side effect of mucositis due to intestinal damage. We examined the protective effect of genistein in tumor-bearing mice after abdominal irradiation by evaluation of apoptosis and intestinal morphological changes. METHODS Mouse colon cancer CT26 cells were… (More)
