SAC and Berberine Mediated Repression of Reactive Species and Hepatoprotection After DEN+CCl4 Exposure

SAC and Berberine Mediated Repression of Reactive Species and Hepatoprotection After DEN+CCl4... Oxidative stress is proposed to play a pivotal role in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma.

Abstract

Oxidative stress is proposed to play a pivotal role in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma. With an accelerated metabolism cancer cells demand high reactive species accumulation to maintain their indiscriminate cell growth and proliferation. Here we wanted to see the status of reactive species in the chemically induced liver cancer. For this purpose swiss albino mice were exposed to DEN and CCl4 to develop an in vivo model of hepatocarcinoma. Depletion of cellular antioxidants regulated accretion of reactive species during the development of DEN + CCl4 induced tumor formation in hepatocytes. Currently available therapeutics for heptatocellular carcinoma is costly and coupled with certain bystander effects to the surrounding control cells. Therefore considering the antioxidant properties of SAC and berberine we treated DEN + CCl4 exposed mice after the development of liver tumor. Results effectively pointed out the usefulness of the alternative treatment with SAC and berberine in hepatoprotection. Replenishment of both enzymatic and non enzymatic antioxidant efficiently reduced accumulation of reactive species and that eventually closely associated with effective reduction in tumor number and size after drug treatment in DEN + CCl4 exposed mice.
