Clinical use of doxorubicin, an effective chemotherapeutic agent, has limited uses due to dose-dependent cardiac toxicity. It has been supposed that the production of free radicals and calcium ions overload can lead to cardiac toxicity. Magnesium is a cardioprotective drug which inhibits lipid peroxidation and reducing myocardial apoptosis. This study was aimed to explore the hypothesis that the cardiac toxicity induced by administration of doxorubicin is prevented or reduced by magnesium sulfate treatment and if so, whether this is associated with altered oxidative stress response in heart.

Doxorubicin (DOX) is a wide spectrum antitumor drug. However, its clinical application is limited due to the cardiotoxicity. Carvedilol (CAR) is a β-blocker used to treat high blood pressure and hear...
The present investigation has been undertaken to reveal the protective mechanism of polyphenolics extract of whole wheat grains (WWGPE), ferulic acid and apigenin against doxorubicin (Dox)-induced car...
The short-term effects of magnesium sulfate infusion during surgery are well known. However, the long-term outcomes of intraoperative magnesium sulfate infusion remain unknown. Medical records of pati...
Advances in anti-lymphoma therapy prolong overall survival, making late adverse effects, like doxorubicin-related cardiotoxicity, an even more important clinical issue. The effectiveness of cardioprot...
Magnesium sulfate has emerged as an important drug to alleviate the pain after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. However, the use of magnesium sulfate for pain control after laparoscopic cholecystectomy h...
Lidocaine and magnesium sulfate have been increasingly used during surgical anesthesia. Thus, the present randomized, placebo‐controlled, double‐blind study was designed to evaluate th...
The anthracycline doxorubicin, first introduced in the 1960's, continues to be an effectively utilized antineoplastic drug. Even at relatively low cumulative doses there is risk of cardiot...
Chemotherapy or radiation therapy-induced cardiotoxicity are well-recognized side effects in patients with cancer. The clinical significance of cardiotoxicity is growing with increasing ca...
All women with severe preeclmapsia were given a loading dose of 4 g magnesium sulfate IV followed by the maintenance dose of 1 g/h infusion till the delivery. After delivery, women who rec...
The purpose of this study is to assess the protective effect of Valsartan on chronic cardiotoxicity induced by CHOP.
A catatoxic steroid and microsomal enzyme inducer having significant effects on the induction of cytochrome P450. It has also demonstrated the potential for protective capability against acetaminophen-induced liver damage.
An anthracycline which is the 4'-epi-isomer of doxorubicin. The compound exerts its antitumor effects by interference with the synthesis and function of DNA.
Derivatives of chondroitin which have a sulfate moiety esterified to the galactosamine moiety of chondroitin. Chondroitin sulfate A, or chondroitin 4-sulfate, and chondroitin sulfate C, or chondroitin 6-sulfate, have the sulfate esterified in the 4- and 6-positions, respectively. Chondroitin sulfate B (beta heparin; DERMATAN SULFATE) is a misnomer and this compound is not a true chondroitin sulfate.
Specialized clothing or equipment worn for protection against health hazards. Personal Protective Equipment may include MASKS; RESPIRATORY PROTECTIVE DEVICES; HEAD PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EYE PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EAR PROTECTIVE DEVICES; PROTECTIVE CLOTHING; and protective footwear.
An enzyme that catalyzes the activation of sulfate ions by ATP to form adenosine-5'-phosphosulfate and pyrophosphate. This reaction constitutes the first enzymatic step in sulfate utilization following the uptake of sulfate. EC 220.127.116.11.
