(Annual Review of Biomedical Sciences, 2005) [Artigo]
Lack of chemoprevention of dietary Agaricus blazei against rat colonic aberrant crypt foci
(Human & Experimental Toxicology, 2008-06-01) [Artigo]
The mushroom Agaricus blazei (Ab) has been widely used in folk medicine to treat various diseases including cancer. No information is available on its possible protective effects on the development of colon cancer. The ...
Inhibition of Mouse Urinary Bladder Carcinogenesis by A double dagger ai Fruit (Euterpe oleraceae Martius) Intake
(Plant Foods For Human Nutrition, 2012-09-01) [Artigo]
A double dagger ai, fruit from Euterpe oleraceae Martius, is consumed in natura and in a variety of beverages and food preparations and possesses several potential antioxidant compounds. In a first study for anticarcinogenicity ...
Screening for In Vitro and In Vivo Antitumor Activities of the Mushroom Agaricus Blazei
(Nutrition and Cancer-an International Journal, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
We have investigated the in vitro antitumor activity of the mushroom Agaricus blazei Murill on human cancer cell lines as well as its potential anticancer activity in a model of rat colon carcinogenesis. The in vitro ...
Diuron exposure induces systemic and organ-specific toxicity following acute and sub-chronic exposure in male Wistar rats
(Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology, 2011-05-01) [Artigo]
Diuron [3-(3,4-dichloropheny1)-1,1-dimethylurea] is a substitute urea herbicide widely used on agricultural crops with potential mutagenic, teratogenic, reproductive and carcinogenic effects. Nonetheless, its toxic potential ...
Lack of Chemopreventive Activity of Agaricus blazei Mushroom on the Development of 1,2-Dimethylhydrazine-Induced Colonic Aberrant Crypt Foci in Rats
(Nutrition and Cancer-an International Journal, 2008-01-01) [Artigo]
Chemopreventive and immunomodulatory potential of methanolic (MET) and dichloromethanic (DCl) extracts of Agaricus blazei mushroom were investigated in the postinitiation stage of colon carcinogenesis in male Wistar rats. ...
Indole-3-carbinol attenuates the deleterious gestational effects of bisphenol A exposure on the prostate gland of male F1 rats
(Reproductive Toxicology, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical that has been investigated for it potential to cause prostate diseases. In this study, pregnant Sprague-Dawley rats were treated with 25 or 250 mu g/kg BPA from gestational day (GD) 10 to ...
Coffee and Caffeine Protect against Liver Injury Induced by Thioacetamide in Male Wistar Rats
(Basic & Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology, 2012-11-01) [Artigo]
Coffee intake has been inversely related to the incidence of liver diseases, although there are controversies on whether these beneficial effects on human health are because of caffeine or other specific components in this ...
Maternal Western Style Diet Increases Susceptibility to Chemically-Induced Mammary Carcinogenesis in Female Rats Offspring
(Nutrition And Cancer-an International Journal, 2014-11-17) [Artigo]
The present study investigated whether maternal exposure to western style diet (WD) increases susceptibility to mammary carcinogenesis induced by N-methyl-N-nitrosourea (MNU) in female offspring. Pregnant female Sprague-Dawley ...
Effects of swim training on liver carcinogenesis in male Wistar rats fed a low-fat or high-fat diet
(Applied Physiology Nutrition and Metabolism = Physiologie Appliquee Nutrition Et Metabolisme, 2012-12-01) [Artigo]
The present study aimed to investigate the beneficial effects of swim training on the promotion-progression stages of rat liver carcinogenesis. Male Wistar rats were submitted to chemically induced liver carcinogenesis and ...
