Methotrexate (MTX), a folate antagonist agent, is mainly used in treatment of malignant tumors and auto immune diseases and affects not only tumor cells, but also gastrointestinal mucosa. The present study was undertaken to determine whether lipoic acid (LA) could ameliorate methotrexate-induced oxidative intestine injury in rabbits. Twenty-one rabbits were randomly assigned into three groups: Group 1 (control group), Group 2 (received 20 mg/kg MTX), Group 3 (received MTX plus LA 75 mg/kg… Expand
Protective Effect of Vitamin A against Oxidative Stress Caused by Methotrexate
TLDR
The present study suggests that the administration of vit.A with MTX is associated with reduction in oxidative stress, and therapeutic role in reduced toxicity of MTX. Expand
Protective Effects of Exogenous Melatonin Against Methotrexate-Induced Intestinal Injury
TLDR
It is demonstrated that supplementation by exogenous melatonin significantly reduces MTX-induced small intestinal damage, indicating that it may be beneficial in ameliorating MTx-induced enteritis in humans. Expand
Preclinical Efficacy of Melatonin to Reduce Methotrexate-Induced Oxidative Stress and Small Intestinal Damage in Rats
TLDR
The results of the present study demonstrate that supplementation by exogenous melatonin significantly reduces MTX-induced small intestinal damage, indicating that it may be beneficial in ameliorating MTx-induced enteritis in humans. Expand
Potential protective role of barley's grains on methotrexate induced jejunal mucosal damage in male albino rats
Introduction: Methotrexate (MTX) is widely used as chemotherapy drug in the treatment of rheumatoid disease. MTX is known for its common effect in causing intestinal mucosal injury. Barley (HordeumExpand
Evaluation of the possible protective role of vitamin A on methotrexate-induced changes on the jejunal mucosa of adult male albino rat: Histological and immunohistochemical study
TLDR
Co-administration of vitamin A with methotrexate ameliorated these histological changes and there was a increase in the number of PCNA positive nuclei in the crypts of group B, and Methotrexate caused mucosal damage improved with vitamin A co-administation. Expand
Alpha-lipoic acid improves acute deltamethrin-induced toxicity in rats.
TLDR
It can be concluded that ALA may be a promising therapeutic option for prevention and (or) treatment of deltamethin toxicity. Expand
A study on the possible role of mitochondrial damage reactive nitrogen species and reactive oxygen species in the pathogenesis of methotrexate induced small intestinal damage in the rat
Methotrexate is widely used in the treatment of different malignancies and inflammatory disorders. The therapeutic effect of the drug is through the competitive inhibition of dihydrofolateExpand
Does Erythropoietin Protect the Intestine against Ischemic / Reperfusion Injury in Rabbits ?
The protective effect of erythropoietin (EPO) on intestinal ischemic/reperfusion injury has been less studied. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to evaluate whether EPO has protectiveExpand

TLDR
Quince leaf decoction (C. oblonga Miller) protected rabbit testes and spermatogenesis from damage induced by hypercholesterolemia. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that α-LA is a promising feed additive to regulate growth, antioxidant status and lipid metabolism in E. sinensis, but its inclusion in the diet should be considered. Expand

Effects of N-acetylcysteine on methotrexate-induced small intestinal damage in rats.
TLDR
Administration of N-acetylcysteine provides protection against the MTX-induced damage to small intestinal epithelium in rats, and this protective effect of NAC may have clinical applications in chemotherapy. Expand
Effect of Oral Glutamine on Enterocyte Turnover during Methotrexate-Induced Mucositis in Rats
TLDR
Treatment with oral glutamine prevents mucosal injury and improves intestinal recovery following MTX injury in the rat. Expand
Protective effect of aged garlic extract (AGE) on the apoptosis of intestinal epithelial cells caused by methotrexate
TLDR
The MTX-induced apoptosis of IEC-6 cells was shown to be depressed by AGE, suggesting that AGE may be useful for the cancer chemotherapy with MTX, since AGE reduces the MTx-induced intestinal damage. 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
Lipoic acid - the drug of the future?
TLDR
Analysis of literature data suggests participation of lipoic acid in processes of cell growth and differentiation can be crucial to clinical practice, however, this problem requires further studies. Expand
Effects of n-acetylcysteine in a rat model of ischemia and reperfusion injury.
TLDR
Results clearly demonstrate that NAC treatment exert a protective effect and part of this effect may be due to inhibition of the expression of adhesion molecule and peroxynitrite-related pathways and subsequent reduction of neutrophil-mediated cellular injury. Expand
Prevention of singlet oxygen-induced DNA damage by lipoate.
TLDR
The protecting effect of lipoic acid was time- and pH-dependent and significant protection was seen even at 50 microM, and metal chelation with EDTA decreased the protection by lipoate, indicating that metal ions may be involved. Expand

TLDR
Clinicians who have become familiar with the concepts presented should be better equipped to prescribe the drug in a more effective and rational manner and emerging insights into the role of naturally occurring genetic variations in cellular pathways of MTX metabolism hold promise for predicting both efficacy and toxicity of the drug.

TLDR
Using this method, the liped peroxide level in the liver of rats suffering from carbon tetrachloride intoxication was investigated and was in good agreement with previously reported data obtained by measuring diene content. Expand
