Possible protective effects of a methanolic extract of Viscum album (VA) and quercetin (QE) against cyclophosphamide (CP) induced cardiotoxicity, urotoxicity and genotoxicity in mice were evaluated. Mice were administered orally VA (250 mg/kg/day) and QE (50 mg/kg/day) for 10 days alone or in combination with CP. After the same doses of VA and QE given for 7 days, rats were intraperitoneally administered CP (40 mg/kg) on days 8 and 9 of the experiment. Cardiotoxic, urotoxic and genotoxic…

Methotrexate-Induced Nephrotoxicity in Rats: Protective Effect of Mistletoe (Viscum album L.) Extract
TLDR
It is demonstrated that HLX administration markedly reduced the MTX-induced acute oxidative stress and nephrotoxicity in rats through its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Mitigating Role of Quercetin Against Cyclophosphamide-Induced Lung Injury in Rats
TLDR
It is suggested that Qur produces a protective effect against CP-induced lung injury and suggest a role of oxidative stress and inflammation in the pathogenesis.
CARDIOPROTECTIVE EFFECT OF MENTHA LONGIFOLIA AGAINST CYCLOPHOSPHAMIDE INDUCED CARDIOTOXICITY IN RATS: A BIOCHEMICAL, ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHIC AND HISTOPATHOLOGICAL STUDY
TLDR
The biochemical, ECG and histopathology reports support the potential benefits of Mentha longifolia against myocardial damage which could be attributed to antioxidant activity.
The protective effect of quercetin on cyclophosphamide-Induced lung toxicity in rats.
Ursolic acid prevents cyclophosphamide induced myocardial oxidative tissue damage in wistar rats
TLDR
Ursolic acid treatment restored tissue antioxidants, normalised biochemical and electrocardiographic parameters and prevented structural damage of the myocardium, indicating the protective role of ursolic acid against cardiotoxicity caused by cyclophosphamide.
Modulation of cyclophosphamide-induced cardiotoxicity by methyl palmitate
TLDR
The cardioprotective effects of MP may be attributed to its ability to suppress oxidative stress and interrupt TLR4/NF-κB signaling pathway with subsequent amelioration of apoptosis.
Genotoxicity Assessment and Protective Effect of Anogeissus leiocarpus Roots against Cyclophosphamide-Induced DNA Damage In Vivo
TLDR
This first finding reports that the extract of A. leiocarpus was neither genotoxic nor cytotoxic, however, it shows a protective effect against the genotoxicity and cytotoxicity induced by cyclophosphamide.
Cardioprotective effects of Viscum album L. ssp. album (Loranthaceae) on isoproterenol-induced heart failure via regulation of the nitric oxide pathway in rats
TLDR
Viscum album exerted favorable effects on left ventricular function in isoproterenol-induced heart failure rats, and upregulation of the NO pathway seems to be the possible pathophysiological mechanism.
Tranilast ameliorates cyclophosphamide-induced lung injury and nephrotoxicity.
TLDR
Results show a significant protective potential of tranilast against deleterious lung and kidney damage induced by CP, probably by enhancing host antioxidant defense mechanism, decreasing cytotoxicity, and decreasing expression of inflammatory cytokines.

Thymoquinone supplementation attenuates cyclophosphamide‐induced cardiotoxicity in rats
TLDR
Data from this study suggest that TQ supplementation attenuates CP‐induced cardiotoxicity by a mechanism related, at least in part, to its ability to decrease oxidative and nitrosative stress and to preserve the activity of antioxidant enzymes as well as its able to improve the mitochondrial function and energy production.

TLDR
It was concluded that oxidants might be important in the pathogenesis of CP-induced cystitis, and that flavonoid antioxidants, used in addition to mesna, may help to ameliorate bladder damage.
Cytoprotective role of DL-α-Lipoic acid in cyclophosphamide induced myocardial toxicity
TLDR
In CP administered rats, the activities of tissue marker enzymes were significantly reduced, ATPases suffered loss in enzyme activity and thiols were depleted, highlighting the protective role of lipoic acid in CP induced cardiac injury.

TLDR
In CP administered rats, the activities of tissue marker enzymes were significantly reduced, ATPases suffered loss in enzyme activity and thiols were depleted, highlighting the protective role of lipoic acid in CP induced cardiac injury.

TLDR
It could be concluded that curcumin has proven uroprotective efficacy in this cyclophosphamide haemorrhagic cystitis model, possibly through modulating the release of inflammatory endocoids, namely tumour necrosis factor-alpha and nitric oxide, improving the energy status and restoring the oxidant/antioxidant balance.

TLDR
The data indicate that quercetin may be useful in mitigating daunorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity and changes in fluorescence of the outer mitochondrial membrane.
