Title: Alleviation of genotoxic effects of cyclophosphamide using encapsulation into liposomes in the absence or presence of vitamin C

Abstract:  Cyclophosphamide (CP) is a widely used anticancer and immunosuppressant that induces oxidative stress. To ameliorate the side effects resulted from CP treatment, liposomes were tested as an efficient drug delivery system with or without vitamin C as an antioxidant. CP resulted in clastogenic and cytotoxic effects that significantly increased for the total chromosomal aberrations as well as the numerical ones in the CP group (150.8 and 6, respectively) than the control group (6.6 and 0.0) as mean values at p the highly significant amelioration results were observed in the liposomised vitamin C and CP group (40.88 nmol/min/mg protein). Our findings support the potential use of CP in a liposomal formulation doped with vitamin C to diminish the potential side effects of the agent.
