Treatment of mice with a herbal preparation (Liv. 52) reduces the frequency of radiation-induced chromosome damage in bone marrow.
Mutat Res. 1991 Oct;253(2):123-6. PMID: 1922138
Induction of chromosomal aberrations was studied from 1/4 to 14 days post irradiation in the bone marrow of mice treated or not with Liv. 52, a herbal preparation, prior to 4.5 Gy exposure. The frequency of chromatid and chromosomal aberrations started increasing at day 1/4 in the irradiation and Liv. 52 + irradiated groups. The highest frequency of aberrations was recorded at day 1/2 post exposure which declined after day 1 in both groups. The frequency of both types of aberrations was significantly lower in the Liv. 52 + irradiated group than in the irradiated group.
