Özet

Background/aim: Doxorubicin (DOX) is a widely used and potent chemotherapeutic agent. However, serious dose-limiting toxicity through generation of free oxygen radicals is a commonly encountered clinical problem. The aim of the current study was to assess the protective role of onion (Allium cepa) extract (ACE) against DOX-induced hepatotoxicity in rats.
