The role of intestinal microbiota in development of irinotecan toxicity and in toxicity reduction through dietary fibres in ratsDownload
CPT-11 is a drug used as chemotherapy for colorectal cancer. CPT-11 causes toxic side-effects in patients. CPT-11 toxicity has been attributed to the activity of intestinal microbiota, however, intestinal microbiota may also have protective effects in CP!-11 chemotherapy. This study aimed to...
Non digestible carbohydrates in the diet determine toxicity of irinotecan (CPT-11)/5-fluorouracil in rats independently of β-glucuronidase activity in intestinal lumenDownload
Aim of this study was to assess effects of non-digestible carbohydrates on the pathobiology of mucosal injury after chemotherapy. Rats bearing colon tumor (n=6/diet) were fed diets including 8% (w/w) as either cellulose, inulin, fructo-oligosaccharide (OligoF), 50:50 (w/w) inulin and oligoF...
