Insight into the role of DL-alpha-lipoic acid against cyclophosphamide induced alterations in calcium sensitivity of cardiac myofilaments

, : Insight into the role of DL-alpha-lipoic acid against cyclophosphamide induced alterations in calcium sensitivity of cardiac myofilaments. Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry 289(1-2): 31-37

Cyclophosphamide (CP), a potent antitumor drug, is known to cause severe cardiotoxicity. The present study is aimed at evaluating the role of DL-alpha-Lipoic acid (LA) on the calcium responsiveness of cardiac myofilaments isolated from CP treated rats. Adult male Wistar rats were divided into four treatment groups. Two groups received single intraperitoneal injection of CP (200 mg/kg b.wt.) to induce cardiotoxicity, one of these groups received LA treatment (25 mg/kg b.wt. for 10 days).
