Vitamin A (VA) protects the small intestine from the methotrexate (MTX)-induced damage. The in vivo effects of MTX and/or VA on crypt cells of small intestine were investigated using rats orally administered MTX (15 mg/kg body weight) and/or VA (5,000 IU/kg body weight). The thymidine kinase activity of crypt cells separated from villus cells of small intestine of MTX plus VA-treated rats was lower than that from control rats but higher than that from MTX-treated rats. VA-treated rats showed… Expand
Effect of Vitamin A against Methotrexate-Induced Damage to the Small Intestine in Rats
TLDR
The results confirmed that administration of VA decreased the MTX-induced damage to the small intestine, and this protective effect of VA may have clinical applications in cancer chemotherapy. Expand
Correlation between methotrexate-induced intestinal damage and decrease in polyamine content.
TLDR
It is indicated that OP-1206 could protect the intestinal mucosa against the biochemical effects of MTX through a trophic action on intestinal villi. Expand
Protective effect of a synthetic analog of prostaglandin E(1) on the small intestinal damage induced by the administration of methotrexate to rats.
TLDR
Results show that OP-1206 alleviates the methotrexate-induced damage to the small intestine of rats, using in vitro everted intestine and in situ intestinal loop techniques. Expand
Amelioration of methotrexate-induced malabsorption by vitamin A
TLDR
It is found that the coadministration of vitamin A (VA) with MTX protected the small intestine from MTX-induced damage, and it seems likely that VA ameliorates MTx-induced malabsorption. Expand
Effect of vitamin A on methotrexate cytotoxicity in L1210 murine leukemia cells in culture
TLDR
The present study proved in L1210 murine leukemia cells in vitro that VA did not disturb the antitumor activity of MTX and this depression was not affected by the presence of VA. Expand
Docosahexaenoic acid exhibits a potent protection of small intestine from methotrexate-induced damage in mice.
TLDR
DHA protected the small intestine of mice from theMTX-induced damage and the permeability of FITC-dextran increased remarkably in the MTX-treated mice and oral administration of docosahexaenoic acid ethyl ester protected thesmall intestine from the increase in the small intestinal permeability. Expand
Alleviation by garlic of antitumor drug-induced damage to the intestine.
TLDR
Results suggest that AGE may protect the small intestine of rats from antitumour drug-induced damage, and may even protect against damage from aged garlic extract. Expand
A synthetic analog of prostaglandin E(1) prevents the production of reactive oxygen species in the intestinal mucosa of methotrexate-treated rats.
TLDR
OP-1206 may possibly help the anticancer chemotherapy by protecting the small intestine from the methotrexate-induced damage. Expand
Evaluation of damaged small intestine of mouse following methotrexate administration
TLDR
Evaluating the damage to the small intestine of mice caused by MTX administration revealed that MTX treatment disorders the paracellular barrier function of the small intestinal epithelium, resulting in increased permeation of nonabsorbable markers via the parACEllular pathway of theSmall intestinal mucosa. Expand
Vitamin A deficiency exacerbates methotrexate-induced jejunal injury in rats.
TLDR
The interaction of vitamin A deficiency and small intestinal injury may explain the efficacy ofitamin A supplementation in preventing childhood diarrheal disease mortality in developing countries, and highlights the need for ensuring adequate vitamin A status in people worldwide with diseases and/or treatments which may injure the gastrointestinal tract.

Vitamin A protects the small intestine from methotrexate-induced damage in rats.
TLDR
It has been shown histologically, biochemically, physicochemical, physicochemically and physiologically that VA protects the small intestine from the damage induced by MTX. Expand
Response of the rat small-intestine epithelium to methotrexate.
TLDR
In the small intestine under conditions of altered epithelial renewal, some components of enterocyte function may be affected more than others and the nature of the original intestinal injury is a significant determinant of the pattern of enterocytes response. Expand

TLDR
The methotrexate-induced reversible decrease in absorption seems to be attributable at least partly to diminished water flux through the intestinal wall, although other mechanisms may also exist. Expand
The cytotoxicity of methotrexate in mouse small intestine in relation to inhibition of folic acid reductase and of DNA synthesis.
TLDR
In spite of the early inhibition of DNA synthesis, methotrexate induces relatively few degenerating cells in the proliferative crypt epithelium during the first 6 hr, and it is concluded that inhibition ofDNA synthesis by metotrexate in mouse intestinal crypts is not selective but is balanced by concurrent inhibition of RNA or of protein or of both. Expand
The effect of repeated oral dosing of methotrexate on its intestinal absorption in the rat.
TLDR
Studies with 2,4-dinitrophenol indicate that the depressed uptake was due to a decrease in active transport, and the high dose schedule produced severe mucosal damage and significantly decreased the uptake of l - 14 C]leucine. Expand
Passive permeability in experimental intestinal damage in rats.
TLDR
The hypothesis that there are at least two routes for the permeation of polar molecules is supported by the results of experiments performed to study the absorption of two simultaneously administered polar probes of different molecular size from closed intestinal loops in rats subjected to various mucosal structural lesions.

Adult male rats received 5 mg methotrexate daily and were sacrificed 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5 and 3 days after the beginning of the treatment. Other groups received 9,000 rads of abdominal x-radiation and wereExpand
An in vitro assessment of the effect of cytotoxic drugs upon the intestinal absorption of nutrients in rats.
TLDR
It was concluded that cytotoxic drugs reduce intestinal absorption by inhibiting carriers involved in "active-transport" mediated uptake. Expand
Morphologic alterations induced by methotrexate in the mucosa of human proximal intestine. I. Serial observations by light microscopy.
TLDR
There was an increase in the number of mitoses during the week following methotrexate-induced inhibition and during the period of mitotic reduction, many small, spherical, DNA-containing inclusion bodies appeared in the cytoplasm of the crypt cells. Expand
Evidence for direct inhibition of de novo purine synthesis in human MCF-7 breast cells as a principal mode of metabolic inhibition by methotrexate.
TLDR
Evidence leads to the conclusion that MTX and the lipid-soluble analog trimetrexate cause inhibition of purine biosynthesis through the accumulation of H2PteGlu behind the blocked dihydrofolate reductase reaction. Expand
