The aim of this study was to investigate the potential radioprotective effect of kombucha musroom tea (KM - tea) on gamma radiation ( γ) - induced chromosomal aberrations (CAs) in human peripheral blood lymphocytes in vitro. For this purpose, we used in vitro dose-effect relationship, and correlated these data with statistical parameters. CAs were classified into six major types as break, dicentric, acentric, fragment, gap and ring. Mitotic index (MI) and the numbers of aberrant metaphases (AMN…

A Review on Kombucha Tea-Microbiology, Composition, Fermentation, Beneficial Effects, Toxicity, and Tea Fungus.

Existing reports have suggested that the protective effects of kombucha tea are as good as those of black tea, however, more studies on kombuch tea and its composition are needed before final conclusions can be made.

Health, Wellness, and Safety Aspects of the Consumption of Kombucha

Functional foods have been identified as whole foods and fortified, enriched, or enhanced products which have a potentially beneficial effect on health when consumed as part of a varied diet on a

Radioprotective effect of lycopene on chromosomal aberrations (CAs) induced by gamma radiation in human lymphocytes.

In vitro results showed that the lycopene supplementation decreases frequency of CAs and its protective role against chromosome damages induced by radiation is dose-dependent until a certain stage.

Anticlastogenic effects of black tea polyphenols theaflavins and thearubigins in human lymphocytes in vitro.

Anticlastogenic action of vitamin C against genotoxicity of estrogenic drug diethylstilbestrol (DES) in the human lymphocyte chromosomes.

The results support the possibility of practical application of natural protectors against the mutagenic/oenotoxic action of chemical mutagens and interesting ameliorating effects were observed in the presence of vitamin C which is a well-known antioxidant.

Subacute (90 days) oral toxicity studies of Kombucha tea.

The study indicates that rats fed KT for 90 days showed no toxic effects and the haematological and biochemical variables were within the clinical limits.

Radiation-induced chromosomal aberrations in human lymphocytes after partial-body exposure to 60Co gamma-irradiation and in vitro exposure to 230 kV X-irradiation.

Small yields of chromosome aberrations were present in lymphocytes from 12 patients observed at first metaphase in culbure and on subdivision into two groups on the basis of whether the reticuloendothelial system was involved in the cancer, linear regression analysis could be fitted to the data for each group.

Transmission of γ‐ray‐induced unstable chromosomal aberrations through successive mitotic divisions in human lymphocytes in vitro

Transmission of unstable chromosomal aberrations through successive mitotic divisions M1-M4 was analysed in 3 Gy gamma-ray-irradiated G0 human lymphocytes in vitro, harvested at 50, 72 and 96 h, and a salient feature of the delayed effects was the induction of giant cells and the mirror dicentrics observed in them.
