Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the impact of resveratrol (RST) on oxidative stress induced by methotrexate in rat ileum tissue. Materials and Methods: Twenty-four rats were divided into 4 groups with 6 in each group. Each rat was orally administered the following every day for 30 days: group 1 (MTXG), methotrexate (MTX; 5 mg/kg); group 2 (RMTXG), MTX (5 mg/kg) plus RST (25 mg/kg/day); group 3 (RSTG), RST alone (25 mg/kg/day), and group 4 (controls), distilled water. After the… Expand

Effects of anakinra on the small intestine mucositis induced by methotrexate in rats
Intestinal mucositis caused by MTX may be preventible by co-administered anakinra, and inflammatory cell infiltration and damage to the villus were observed histopathologically in theMTXG group, whereas only mild inflammation was seen in the MTX+ANA100 group. Expand

Results suggest that turmeric extract may protect the small intestine of rats from methotrexate-induced damage and Turmeric effects could result from its antioxidant properties. Expand
Role of inducible nitric oxide synthase pathway on methotrexate-induced intestinal mucositis in rodents
The results suggest an important role of nitric oxide, via activation of iNOS, in the pathogenesis of intestinal mucositis, as indicated by the reduced villus and crypt damages, inflammatory alterations, cell death, MPO activity, and nitrotyrosine immunostaining due to MTX challenge. Expand

It is demonstrated that melatonin is capable of reversing MTX‐induced intestinal dysfunctions, indicating that it may be beneficial in ameliorating the symptoms of chemotherapy‐induced enteritis. Expand
Beta-glucan ameliorates methotrexate-induced oxidative organ injury via its antioxidant and immunomodulatory effects.
The findings of the present study suggest that beta-glucan, through its antioxidant and immunoregulatory effects, may be of therapeutic value in alleviating the leukocyte apoptosis, oxidative tissue injury and thereby the intestinal and hepatorenal side effects of methotrexate treatment. Expand

Roles of enterobacteria, nitric oxide and neutrophil in pathogenesis of indomethacin-induced small intestinal lesions in rats.
It is strongly suggested that enterobacterial translocation in the mucosa is the first step required for activation of various factors such as iNOS/NO and neutrophils, all involved in the pathogenesis of indomethacin-induced intestinal lesions. Expand
